Hello friends.

Of course, Christmas has come and gone but I'm still in that mood and I've been wanting to share some of the recipes I made for Christmas with you all.

This particular post is all about traditional Christmas morning breakfasts. Do you have any special dishes you always make or that you grew up with? From a pretty young age, I always remember my mother making a delicious egg casserole. I looked forward to that egg casserole every year, as much a part of Christmas morning as opening presents. Years later, I now make it for our household every Christmas morning. The smell of bacon and eggs cooking on Christmas morning is divine.


This is a really easy dish to whip together. It has to sit overnight so you can make it Christmas Eve and all you have to do Christmas morning is wake up and pop it in the oven. It can bake while you open presents. And it goes great with those Christmas morning mimosas (we always do pomegranate).


For me, this is a traditional Christmas morning breakfast just because I grew up with it being so. I don't make it any other time of the year because it's special. That being said, it's an egg casserole so you can really make it any time of year. Since it's an egg dish it would actually work great for an Easter brunch as well. Or really, any brunch.


So, without further ado, here you go. The recipe for my favorite Christmas morning breakfast.

~ Directions ~

Line the bottom of a greased 9 x 9 casserole dish with the bread.

In a large bowl mix eggs, milk, dry mustard, salt, and pepper. Beat well. Fold in cheese. Pour egg mixture over bread. Crumble bacon over dish.


Tip: If you don't like bacon you can use something else. I prefer spinach so I usually make half with bacon and half with fresh spinach. Sausage would work well too.

Cover and refrigerate overnight.

Bake uncovered at 325° for up to 45 minutes until center is done. Let set for 10 minutes before serving.
