Our Best Breakfast Casseroles
Breakfast Sausage Casserole
This satisfying breakfast recipe is perfect to make for weekend guests. Assemble and refrigerate the casserole the night before, and just pop it in the oven the next morning. Look for turkey sausage near other breakfast-style sausage in the frozen foods section.
Spinach, Bacon, and Gruyère Breakfast Strata
This dish has fewer than 20g of total carbs--about half of what you'll find in classic bread-based casseroles. Greek yogurt, eggs, and cheese pack a mighty protein punch, while a touch of bacon seasons to perfection.
Creamy Brioche and Egg Bake
This stand alone breakfast dish is an upgrade from the usual breakfast casserole. Baking eggs in brioche and heavy cream allows for perfectly set, soft, and runny eggs. Fresh herbs and rich egg and meaty sausage flavors round out this bake and give it irresistable texture.
Berry-and-Walnut French Toast Casserole
This overnight casserole saves you the trouble of standing over a griddle flipping individual slices of French toast. If using a fresh baguette, cut it up the day before, and let it sit in the bag overnight to become slightly stale—that'll help prevent sogginess when the casserole is baked.
Overnight Peaches-and-Cream French Toast
Artichoke and Spinach Strata
Thaw the artichoke hearts according to microwave directions, or in the refrigerator for 2 hours. You can also place artichoke hearts in the baking dish and bake at 375° until thawed, then remove from the pan and continue the recipe.
Mini Cheese Grits Casseroles
This make-ahead recipe is ideal for a brunch or holiday breakfast. Prepare the grits the night prior to serving, and then bake the casseroles before everyone arrives. Ramekins in pastel hues help dress up this recipe for your Easter table. Plus, the single-serving portions feel more formal than a regular casserole dish. If you don’t have 8-ounce ramekins, our recipe can be made in a 2-quart baking dish (increase the baking time to about 50 to 55 minutes). The key to creamy, lump-free grits is to stir or whisk the grits while you are slowly pouring them into the water. Stir occasionally until the grits are tender. Make sure the pot of grits does not start popping or bubbling, and reduce heat to low
Cheesy Sausage-and-Croissant Casserole
This casserole is rich, delicious, and worthy of a special occasion breakfast. Gruyère cheese browns beautifully and adds a nutty flavor to the dish. You can substitute Swiss cheese if you prefer.
Associate Food Editor Mary Allen Perry likes the make-ahead ease of this breakfast casserole recipe. Prepare the recipe, without baking, and refrigerate overnight. Let stand at room temperature for 30 minutes; bake as directed. Tip: Make the Cheese Sauce before scrambling the eggs so the sauce will be ready to add at the proper time.
Slow-Cooker French Toast
You can even go back to sleep while it cooks
Double-Berry French Toast Casserole
A feast for the eyes as well as the appetite, this french toast creation is at the top of its game. Use in-season berries for a delectable morning feast.
Smoky Sausage-and-Grits Casserole
You can assemble this up to four days ahead, and keep in the fridge; then let it stand at room temp for 30 minutes before baking.
Cheesy Hash Brown Casserole
That down-home flavor comes together right here in the baking dish. This casserole makes the perfect accompaniment to any breakfast or brunch spread.
This Mexican classic is commonly served topped with eggs, but it's just as delicious without, as a savory crowd-pleaser that skews more toward the lunch end of brunch. Simply bake the casserole, top with cheese, and serve
Marmalade French Toast Casserole
If one piece of French toast isn't enough (and let's be honest, it never is!), then we've got the perfect dish for you: a casserole filled with French toast. This dish combines the tangy flavor of sourdough French bread with sweet, citrusy orange marmalade and crunchy walnuts. Orange rind-infused syrup and a splash of orange juice punch up the flavor even more.
Sausage-Hash Brown Breakfast Casserole
Combine frozen hash brown potatoes with sausage, eggs, and cheese for a hearty, 5-star-rated breakfast or brunch casserole that can be prepped ahead and baked the next morning. Sauté one large onion and one bell pepper in the pork drippings for extra flavor and color. Tip from the recipe developer: To make mini frittatas, cook in 6-inch cast-iron skillets for 30 minutes at 375. Top with sliced avocados, pico de gallo, and a dollop of sour cream and sprinkle with green onions.
Spring Vegetable Frittata
"A frittata is a great brunch dish for entertaining because it makes for an effortless and beautiful family-style presentation."
Smoked Salmon Breakfast Casserole
When you're looking for a breakfast that is both elegant and easy this holiday season, our crowd-pleasing casserole is just the ticket. This multilayered marvel is loaded with crispy potatoes, hot-smoked salmon, and a smattering of fresh herbs. Cottage cheese naturally melds into the eggs, creating pillowy lightness throughout the mixture, while goat cheese creates dense pockets of creaminess. Hot-smoked salmon, unlike cured, is fully cooked—look for it in the fish case or packaged in the meat aisle of your grocery store. Our recipe hits all the marks for a hearty one-dish meal, with 25% fewer calories, 7g less saturated fat, and over 600mg less sodium than traditional meat-and-cheese breakfast casseroles. Use a well-seasoned cast-iron skillet for best results.
Sausage and Polenta Breakfast Casserole
Andouille sausage, two types of cheese, and a splash of hot sauce add flavor and a little kick to Sausage and Polenta Breakfast Casserole. This make-ahead breakfast casserole is perfect for holiday mornings--just cook and enjoy.
One-Dish Blackberry French Toast
Ham Biscuit Casserole
Christmas Breakfast Casserole
This warm and comforting casserole is everything you could want in a Christmas morning breakfast: rich and cheesy grits, rounded out with sausage, bacon, and poblano.
Hash Brown Breakfast Casserole
The classic egg, sausage, and potato breakfast casserole combo gets a little kick from picante sauce and sour cream for a south-of-the-border brunch experience.
Tex-Mex Breakfast Bake
This flavor-packed take on breakfast casserole is a great way to use up leftover Texas toast or garlic bread. Rich, indulgent, and spicy, its gooeyness is perfectly complimented by the tang from the crema, which can be found in a Latin market. Play around with frozen toast flavors to spice things up, or serve it as breakfast for dinner.
Spinach, Artichoke, and Gouda Casserole
If you're looking for some sophisticated ingredients for your next breakfast dish, look no further than spinach, artichoke, and gouda cheese. Mixed in with eggs, these ingredients tap into a wonderful flavor combination that can't be beaten.
Sweet Potato and Sausage Strata
If you make this dish ahead, bring it to room temperature before baking so it will reheat evenly.
Bacon-and-Cheddar Grits Quiche
Spread cheese to the edge of the warm, bacony grits "crust" to prevent any custard from seeping out while the quiche bakes.
Eggs Benedict Totchos
Just four steps to glory
Instant Pot Egg Casserole
Oh Instant Pot, what can't you do?
Lasagna is an act of love, especially on a cold winter morning
