Overnight Breakfast Casserole

Breakfast casseroles are always a huge hit in my menu plan. I know I can do all of the prep the night before and just cover them in the refrigerator to pop into the oven when I wake up. By the time I have my shower and first cup of coffee, it's almost ready to pull from the oven and serve.

Do I Have to Use Sausage in This Baked Breakfast Casserole?

If you don't care for sausage, you can definitely substitute in some bacon or ham in this recipe. You could even use basic ground beef and season with your favorite blend of spices. Sausage is not a must for this overnight breakfast casserole.

To add back some of the flavors, you could play with spices like a taco seasoning, cajun seasoning, or even a hint of barbecue seasoning. There are tons of options to add flavor without using sausage while still keeping this a keto-friendly breakfast.

Can I Freeze Sausage Egg Bake?

Yes! Not only is this a great make-ahead meal to have a hot breakfast in the morning, but it also freezes beautifully for future meals. That is a great bonus for busy families who like to keep easy meals on hand at all times.

To freeze this recipe, you can assemble everything up to the baking process, and pour it into a disposable baking dish then cover well. I like to wrap the entire pan in saran wrap, then a layer of aluminum foil over the top of that. Make sure you label and date the recipe.

The night before you want to make this, pull from the freezer and place it in the refrigerator to then pop into the oven in the morning. When you bake it from frozen, you may need to cook for an additional 10 minutes. Just watch for the casserole to set in the middle.
