This Christmas Breakfast Casserole is the perfect breakfast on Christmas morning!

Christmas Breakfast Casserole Recipe

Assemble it on Christmas Eve, place it in the fridge overnight and bake it while you’re opening your gifts from Santa on Christmas morning! It’s easy to make and always good! It’s always delicious and ready at just the right time!

I use sausage in this recipe, but you could use bacon, mushrooms, ham, or any other mix-ins you love. You could even mix it up and add a different cheese – I’ve used pepper jack and it’s super good!

Pair this Christmas Breakfast Casserole with these Christmas Brunch Recipes or my favorite Cinnamon Rolls and you have a tradition in the making!
