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. 😉

Overnight Breakfast Egg Bake
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!

  • I love how you can see the cardinal ornament so well in this photo. A cardinal is one of our signs from our mom (along with Ainsley flicking us off 🖕🏼😂). And little Kevy’s angel ornament is also right at the top. My mom loved ornaments (she got one every time we traveled) and traditional Christmas decorations so this setup along with all of our family photos makes my heart pretty full ❤️
  • Our first floor is freshly painted, and I got through one box of decorations yesterday. We celebrate the big and little victories over here! Can’t wait for our first fire of the season while we finish decorating this weekend. http://liketk.it/2yA4z #liketkit @liketoknow.it
  • I know, I know, another family Christmas tree picture in your feed, but I couldn’t resist. Full disclosure: Ainsley stayed in the car with grandpa while we picked out a tree. We got it on top of our car, took a photo with this random one and hopped right back into the car to go home 😉
  • The painters are done today, and we’re getting our tree tomorrow! While this time of year is bittersweet, I’m excited to decorate the house for our little angel Ainsley’s first Christmas. And I might even curl my hair and wear real clothes soon🎄 http://liketk.it/2yxRC #liketkit @liketoknow.it #jcrewalways
