10 Make-Ahead Casseroles for a Holiday Brunch

If you’ve never made a breakfast casserole before, I highly recommend you make one this holiday season. It’s the ideal dish for brunch entertaining because you can make it the night before the party and it serves a crowd. Most breakfast casserole recipes are pretty straightforward—there’s a little browning of sausage or frying of bacon, then a bunch of ingredients are combined and tossed into a large baking dish—so even if you’re not a wiz in the kitchen you can easily assemble one of the 10 delicious dishes highlighted here.

Make a strata for your family to enjoy on Christmas morning, or serve a couple of different kinds at a blowout holiday brunch with all of your friends and family. When it’s the morning of the party all you have to do to prepare the meal is pop the casserole in the oven—leaving you plenty of time to put on your hostess dress and enjoy a mimosa. Now, who wouldn’t toast to that?!
