You Need to Try This Busy-Night Breakfast Bake Recipe

This recipe might make your night a bit busier, but it will be so worth it when you have a delicious breakfast waiting for you in the morning.

The recipe needs to chill for 8 hours so it will be impossible to prepare it and eat it in the morning. But if you make it the night before, all you will need to do is pop it in the oven, so you don’t have to worry too much about prepping breakfast during your busy morning.

Read on to find out more about how you can provide a delicious baked breakfast for your family.

Breakfast Bake Recipe

To prepare the recipe, start by browning one pound of ground sausage in a large skillet.

Then, use about 3 cups of frozen shredded hash brown potatoes to make a base layer in a baking dish. Add sausage and cheese in layers. In a mixing bowl, combine 6 large eggs, ¾ cup milk, ¾ tsp. dry mustard, salt, and pepper. Pour over sausage mixture.

Cover and chill 8 hours. In the morning, preheat oven to 350 degrees. Bake covered for 30 minutes. Remove the cover and bake for an additional 5 minutes until set. Let stand 10 minutes before serving.

Then get ready to dig into a meal your entire family will love.

We love this dish because it is perfect for parents who are busy in the mornings but have some extra time the night before to get ready. And even at that, it is fairly easy to prepare. It only requires eight ingredients, including seasoning, and it can be whipped together in less than an hour.

The breakfast bake is also a hearty dish that does not require any sides or additional ingredients. A variety of food groups are represented assuring it will give your family the energy to get through their day.

Just serve with a hot cup of tea, coffee, milk, or juice to make a complete breakfast. If you like to add a kick to your morning, hot sauce can provide the perfect flavoring.

Other Ways to Cook Eggs in the Oven

The concept of cooking eggs in an oven is a bit unusual to most people. Eggs are typically cooked on the stovetop. However, this can be problematic, especially when you are serving a large group.

After eggs are prepared, they must be served immediately, but you are limited as so how many you can prepare at a time. So, if you are serving a large group, you must make eggs and serve them to some of your guests while others wait patiently… or not so patiently!

Cooking eggs in an oven allows you to prepare large quantities at once. And fortunately, there are several options for making oven-baked eggs.

Poached eggs, oven-baked egg custard, and egg casseroles are all great options for other oven-baked breakfast dishes. They can serve a large number of people without making your guests wait while additional eggs cook.

Eggs are very versatile. They can be prepared in several ways and served with any number of ingredients. They are also a great source of protein.

Make the busy night breakfast bake for your family to see the smile it brings to their faces and enjoy the compliments they are sure to give you when they taste this delicious meal.

Other Great Breakfast Ideas For Serving Many

There are many occasions when you might need to serve people other than your family for breakfast. The morning after a sleepover, Easter brunch, Christmas morning breakfast, and other special occasions. You'll need dishes that can serve a very large, and likely very hungry, crew.

Pancakes are always a go-to. As long as you have the batter on hand, making each pancake is a quick process that only takes a little while. Your guests won't need to wait forever for additional pancakes, especially if you make a large stack ahead of time.

Breakfast casseroles are also always a good choice. We talked about egg casseroles above, but there are plenty of other breakfast casseroles out there. Many of them focus on potatoes, but others may take a unique route.

Waffles are also a great choice. Like pancakes, they can be made quickly if you have enough batter on hand. Make a waffle for each guest, and then a few left over for the extra hungry in your family. Keep the butter and syrup handy!
