What do you guys eat for breakfast on Christmas morning? Is it a big deal in your house? I love making a special breakfast for Christmas morning. It’s the perfect way to top off an early morning of opening presents with a huge mug of coffee or hot cocoa. Even better though? Not having to do any work in the morning and being able to enjoy time with family while breakfast is baking away!

Enter the breakfast casserole! You can prep it all the night before, stick it in the fridge overnight, and then transfer it directly to the oven in the morning to bake!

This breakfast casserole starts with cooking crumbled breakfast sausage along with some bell peppers and onions. Then, you just have to add the frozen potatoes and egg mixture! It couldn’t be easier to prep! I think I prefer savory breakfasts more often than something super sweet so this casserole is perfect if you want to go the savory route!

This casserole is nice and hearty and how perfect are the little red and green specks of bell pepper for Christmas?! You can also add some crumbled feta on top if you also want to work in some white!
