I love having people over for the holidays, but I also enjoy spending time with them and my family. So I have discovered the breakfast casserole, to help us all enjoy our time together and I don’t have to be in the kitchen all the time. I enjoy making a good breakfast for everyone but if I can limit my time doing it, that is even better. So here are eleven favorite breakfast casserole recipes.
Baked Pumpkin French Toast
This casserole had my attention from the word, pumpkin. I love pumpkin flavors during the holidays.This recipe starts with a thick wheat bread or Texas toast Then all the fresh pumpkin and the spices you would use in a pumpkin pie.The cubed bread is folded into the pumpkin mixture and poured into a pan. Then topped with the streusel topping and baked. It bakes into a golden brown goodness that needs nothing else added to eat it. This may be prepared ahead of time and popped in the oven in the morning.This Baked Pumpkin French Toast was created by Chew Out Loud.

Apple Butter Breakfast Bake
This is a little bit like the cheddar apple pie bake. The recipe uses crescent rolls, sausage, eggs apple butter and cheese. It ends up being not too sweet but a delightful blend of fall flavors.I choose a regular apple butter but I think it would be good with some of the other flavors.This recipe for Apple Butter Breakfast Bake is by Sugar Dish Me.
Overnight French Toast with Cherries
If you like a slightly sweeter breakfast this Overnight French Toast with Cherries will do. It is a log of cinnamon swirl bread in the bottom of the pan with a mixture of eggs, heavy cream, vanilla and a can of cherry pie filling.the bread soaks overnight in the egg and heavy cream mixture. The cherries can be added to the baked product so they come out bubbling hot or used to top it off when it comes out of the oven. We top it off with a little whip cream.

A typical western omelet but baked in a pan so you can serve a crowd. This Is easy but familiar and delicious. Red and green peppers, onions, ham and cheese and an egg mixture poured over top. I served this with fruit and bagels on the side. The recipe for Baked Western Omelette was created by The Seasoned Mom.
Apple Streusel French Toast Bake
This recipe is like a big apple pie cinnamon bun all wrapped up in one. It starts with making a streusel topping that has brown sugar, pecans, flour, and cinnamon. Then an egg, heavy cream with nutmeg and cinnamon. The bottom of the pan has store-bought cinnamon bun pieces and then the egg mixture is poured on top with the streusel.This will not only warm everyone up for the morning but your house will smell great for the day.

I love the crescent roll dough base of this casserole. Then a breakfast sausage is broken up and dispersed all over the dough. Thawed hash browns and cheese make the next layer. The final layer is the egg mixture with parmesan cheese sprinkled on top. It goes right in the oven to bake and comes out ready to serve like pizza slices.This recipe for Breakfast Pizza was created by Your Home Based Mom.
I love all these recipes and the fact that I can mix them up through the start of the holidays to make my life easier is the final winning factor.
