I can’t believe I am about to type this, but Christmas is next week. It’s Thursday and Christmas is NEXT WEEK…I’m so excited! Usually for Christmas morning breakfast we have a huge breakfast with pancakes, bacon, eggs, all the good, heart attack on a plate stuff and all the mess. This year I don’t have time for the prep and mess because we are having family and friends over for dinner and I really don’t want to spend my entire day in the kitchen. I pulled out my recipe box today and put together this group of recipes for breakfast casseroles. I will need at least two casseroles to feed our family with 7 kids, 3 of whom are teenagers. I just can’t decide which to make because they are all so very yummy! Enjoy!

Jamie’s Family Breakfast Casserole:
Jamie here! I just had to add my family’s breakfast casserole. It’s a super-easy one that I always take to mom groups or other events – and the ingredients are very inexpensive as well. You can make this one the night before in a Pyrex dish – put the cover on and refrigerate. Then go to bed. In the morning, pop in the oven while the kids are opening presents and you’ll have a hot breakfast waiting for you!
