Tips & FAQs ★

Lighten up this dish with turkey sausage.

You can opt for the typical pork breakfast sausage or give turkey sausage a try. Both are delicious. You can change up the flavor of this casserole by choosing flavor stuffing. Try sage, maple, or Italian breakfast sausage. Each on give this dish its own spin.

Sauce optional.

If you want to dress up this breakfast casserole you can top it with Hollandaise sauce. Get my homemade Hollandaise sauce recipe or use a packet mix.

You can also easily add a little kick by topping your slice of this casserole with picante sauce, hot sauce or even salsa!

Can you use leftover prepared stuffing?

Yes! If you don't have dry cubes, but you do have leftover stuffing from Thanksgiving dinner that you want to use to make this dish, you can.

You do not need to add the onion if using prepared stuffing. Otherwise, follow the recipe as directed. Reduce bake time as needed. Casserole is done when it's golden brown and firm (eggs are fully cooked).

Make it ahead.

This is an easy Christmas or holiday morning breakfast because you can prep and even bake it the night before. If you fully bake it, you can cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight. Then microwave each slice for about 30-45 seconds before serving.

Or prepare everything but wait until the morning to bake it. Just cover with plastic and refrigerate for the night. Then remove plastic and bake in the morning.

How long can you store leftovers?

Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days.

This can be frozen and defrosted but it is not recommended as texture will become somewhat chewy.

Need a casserole dish?

This recipe works in any sized casserole dish. I've made this in a 9x12 dish or an 8x8 dish. You choose. Just keep an eye on things as it cooks. Bake time may vary depending on the size dish you use.
