Can I Prepare This Recipe Ahead Of Time?

Yes, you can turn this breakfast casserole into a make-ahead breakfast enchilada in a snap! As I mentioned above, do all the cooking and assembling the night before. Stop right at the moment where you would BAKE the dish.

Just make sure that you allow your dish to cool before you cover with aluminum foil and place it in the fridge. This will prevent it from continuing to cook.

Then, when you are ready to serve this dish the next morning, all you have to do is actually bake it! No fuss. No dirtying your beautiful kitchen. No messy sink. Just heat up your oven and go.

What Can I Add Into This Breakfast Casserole?

You can add cilantro to the eggs if you’d like or some chopped/diced tomatoes. How about putting bacon instead of sausage? Or how about adding in both? Consider tomatoes, mushrooms, or yellow peppers!

The options are limitless. You can really customize this dish to fit your family’s needs.
