Yummy Breakfast Pie Casserole Recipe – Perfect For Holiday Mornings!

|

This breakfast casserole will quickly become a favorite! It’s full of flavor, is easy to make, can be made ahead and frozen and can be reheated.This breakfast casserole makes two pies, can be made ahead and frozen and super tasty || Worthing Court poster.

This delicious casserole has never let me down and is my go-to breakfast recipe when I want something more than just a bowl of cereal.

What I love about this recipe, in addition to the delicious flavor, is that the recipe makes two pies, so it’s perfect for feeding a crowd!  If I don’t have a crowd to feed, I bake both pies, but freeze one of them for later.  Leftovers can be refrigerated and popped into the microwave when you’re ready for another serving.

I traditionally make this recipe for Christmas morning breakfast with my family.  I can make the recipe ahead of time and just pop it in the oven on Christmas morning while packages are being opened. Since individual servings reheat so well in the microwave, everyone can just eat when they’re ready.

I recommend covering what you’re reheating with a slightly dampened paper towel.  Sounds crazy, but that prevents the crust from drying out and becoming chewy.

Your family will love you for making this yummy breakfast casserole! It can be frozen after baking or eaten right away. The recipe makes two pies, so it's great for feeding a crowd. Or freeze one after baking and enjoy the other as soon as it's ready. It reheats wonderfully, so make it over the weekend and pop a piece in the microwave each weekday morning for a nutritious, tummy filling breakfast.

If you’re attending a potluck brunch, I’ve got ya covered!  Once baked, this breakfast casserole will travel well and can easily be reheated.  If you’re going to reheat an entire casserole pie in the oven, I would slightly under-bake it, so that the eggs are still “wet”, but not runny.  Then cover the casserole with a piece of tin foil and reheat at 350 F degrees until hot.

And this casserole isn’t just for breakfast – how about breakfast for dinner? This is a true comfort food that will nicely fill those empty spots in your tummy at the end of a long day.

I’ve tried lots of different breakfast casserole recipes, but none of them were as tasty and as perfect for preparing ahead as this one.  Give it a try and let me know what you think!
