Overnight Breakfast Egg Bake

Overnight Breakfast Egg BakeThis first snow in Wisconsin has me so excited for a weekend at home with our family of three. We’re having brunch with friends and their newborn today but have nothing planned tomorrow. Hoping for a slow start to the day and some extra cuddles!

I thought I’d share an easy egg bake recipe for you to prep today and pop in the oven tomorrow morning. Plus, the leftovers are great for during the week! If you don’t have time to prep it today, you can make it day of, and it’s just as delicious. My mom was the most amazing baker so I grew up baking far more than cooking, but I’ve learned to love cooking these last few years. With that said, I like to keep things pretty simple. This dish would be perfect to bring over to a new mom. 😉

Ingredients

  • 8-10 eggs
  • 1 medium red pepper, chopped
  • ½ yellow onion, diced
  • 1 package of precooked breakfast sausage, cut into small pieces (very official terminology here)
    • Note: I use Johnsonville Vermont Maple Syrup Breakfast Sausage Links because I prefer a little something sweet
  • 1 can of refrigerated biscuits (I use 6 Pillsbury Grands), cut into 6-9 pieces
  • ½ – 1 cup of shredded cheese
  • Milk
  • Salt
  • Pepper

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.*
  2. Dice red pepper and onions. Drizzle with olive oil. Add salt and pepper. Cook for 10-15 minutes.
  3. Reduce heat to 350.
  4. Whisk eggs together with a splash of milk. Add biscuits, red pepper, onion, sausage, cheese, salt and pepper.
  5. Pour into greased 9×13 baking dish. Add a little more shredded cheese on top.
  6. You can either cook immediately or you can cover with foil and place in the refrigerator overnight.
  7. Bake uncovered for 30 minutes or until cooked through. Sometimes the biscuits can be a bit doughy. Plus, I like them golden brown on top so I cook it a little longer.

*Now that I’m a mom, I’ll be starting at step 3 from here on out. The pepper and onion still cook through without the additional prep!

  • Bill, the Christmas elf, stayed up late last night putting the lights on the tree so that it was ready for ornaments in the morning 🎄❤️
  • Santa’s little helper thinks my fishy face could use some improvement, but she made up for the judgmental look by helping me fill some stockings. We ended the night with a dance party and waving goodnight to our tree (and hers) and all of her stuffed animals so I’d say she’s officially on the mend (knock on wood)!
  • This is probably going to be a rambling mess but this time of year is filled with a lot of emotions for me. And while nothing beats experiencing the holidays with a 14 month old, there’s still that hole in my heart missing my mom and brother. This room has taken two years to fill and so much has happened in that time that I wish they would have been here for. If you’re going through a new loss this holiday season (or any loss really), my heart is heavy for you. If you have a friend or family member coping with loss, I have two posts on my blog that may help even just a little - “How to Help a Grieving Friend” and “Coping with Loss During the Holiday Season”. There is a link to them in my bio. Every loss is different and I am by no means an expert, but writing has helped me along the way. (And while not the topic of this post, here are links to most of the pieces in this room because it’s really starting to feel like home, and I love it http://liketk.it/2HttZ #liketkit @liketoknow.it).
  • I couldn’t resist adding some Christmas magic to Ainsley’s room a little early. This is one of the trees my sister and I had in our room growing up around the holidays. Ainsley loves it just as much as we did! And thank you for checking in on our sweet girl. She finally seems back to herself just in time for the long holiday weekend ❤️
  • This brave little girl is HOME! One urgent care visit, one ambulance ride, five hours in the ER and an overnight stay at Children’s which included seven breathing treatments and three doses of steroids. She was a complete rockstar through the entire stay. She had the best guardian angels watching over her with a sign from Grandma Rosie thanks to an orange popsicle they brought Ainsley in the ER. It was my mom’s #1 request any time she was in the hospital. Thank you so much for all of your thoughtful messages and prayers. You continue to show our family so much love, and it means more than you know 🧡
