Christmas Morning Casseroles (Come leave yours!)

Shared by Barbie of CouponingMadeSimple (Utah mother of 7 – all-around amazing person.)

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!

You’ll need:
Crescent Rolls  ($.17 at Bi-Lo this week)
6- 12 Eggs (Depending on how many kids you’re feeding :)
1-2 Bags Shredded Cheese  ($1 at Bi-Lo this week)
Crumbled Sausage  ($1 a roll at Bi-Lo this week)

Nevermind – I just found a very good how-to HERE. So there’s no point in me writing one out!!
