Holiday Brunch (Wifesaver Breakfast Casserole)

Wifesaver Breakfast CasseroleThis breakfast casserole has been a tradition on holidays and family gatherings for years.  I didn’t realize it wasn’t as commonplace for most when I’d been asked about it several times over the last few weeks!  So, I made it this weekend when we had guests over and snapped a pic for you, and an Instagram share of course!

wifesaver breakfastHere’s the (very easy) recipe!  Note that you have to prep everything the night before, but that makes the next morning super easy when you only need to add a topping or two and pop into the oven.
