Breakfast Casserole Tips For Success
Make ahead: You can easily make this casserole the night before and bake in the morning. Just cover in the fridge and take out while your oven is preheating. You may need to increase the baking time by 10-15 minutes.
Baking Tip: This casserole is done when the edges are set and lightly brown and the center only jiggles slightly. Make sure there is no “watery” eggs in the center before removing from the oven.
Storage: Cover the entire casserole with foil or a lid to your baking dish and refrigerate for up to 3 days.
Reheat: Reheat in the microwave.
Freeze: This casserole can be frozen. First bake your breakfast casserole and once it has completely cooled, place in an airtight container or ziplock bag. When ready to warm up, place in oven and bake at 350 degrees until warmed through about 20 to 25 minutes.
