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 was totally third wheeling it with these two this morning (she has been such a daddy’s girl this week), but we managed to get in some five month photos with our little valentine before 6:30 a.m. Swipe through to see the subtle sign I got from my mom during our photoshoot. She was always so great at making us feel extra special on these holidays but also thoroughly enjoyed flicking us off when we were annoying her 🖕🏼💗
  • Ahhhh nothing like that afternoon light shining through to show you all of the dust in your home ☺️ I caught the stomach bug Ainsley and Bill had so we’re pretty much in survival mode over here. That said, I haven’t been very good at relaxing lately so I’m thinking through 2019 home projects. Should it be the year we add a mantel? If so, would you do white or a natural wood? http://liketk.it/2zPbf #liketkit @liketoknow.it #LTKhome
  • Sunday morning girl time while dad sleeps since he took the night shift. Daycare germs have been kicking our butts, but Ainsley seems like she’s finally on the mend 💗 It’s going to be snuggle and (hopefully) nap central around here today.
  • Photo evidence that I made the bed and cleaned off the nightstands once in the last four months. I think this lasted for 30 minutes. I’m currently curled up with a chai and blankets working on some long overdue blog posts. Who else is hibernating all weekend? 🙋🏼‍♀️http://liketk.it/2zygx #liketkit @liketoknow.it #LTKhome
  • This sweet little handprint ornament made me go 😍 every time I passed it on our tree this year. We went to @glazepottery in Thiensville to make it, and I may have already told Bill what I want for Mother’s Day since I definitely teared up when I saw it there (motherhood is emotional haha) - a mug with two handprints with the saying “These hands hold my heart” in the middle. Wink, wink, nod, nod @williamritt just in case you forgot.
