When my kids were younger, I would always make a big overnight breakfast casserole to enjoy on Thanksgiving morning and on Christmas morning. It was wonderful to have my family wake up to the aroma of a delicious breakfast cooking in the oven. It was even more wonderful knowing I hadn’t spent hours earlier in the kitchen preparing it for them.

Overnight breakfast casseroles couldn’t be easier to make and since you combine the ingredients the night before, it makes breakfast easy. So easy, I sometimes wonder why I don’t make overnight breakfast casseroles more often.

Breakfast Casserole

I’ve taken the same flavorful breakfast casserole recipe that I have made for years and created this wonderful single serving version. The breakfast casserole recipe is still made with all of the delicious ingredients found in my original recipe; plenty of cooked sausage, shredded cheese, an egg, milk and bread – all in a perfect little recipe for one.

One of the many things I love about this recipe is the fact that you make it the night before you want to eat it. Just combine the ingredients in a small baking dish, cover and refrigerate. In the morning, heat the oven and bake the casserole for about 25 to 30 minutes.

It’s like a savory breakfast bread pudding! If you are looking for a sweeter breakfast casserole, you’ll love my Breakfast Bread Pudding made with apples and pecans.

Use your favorite cheese, I love using Monterey Jack or Cheddar best. I also find it best to use a crusty bread, such as French, Italian, Sourdough or even croissants.

Since this is such an easy breakfast recipe, please don’t wait for a holiday to make it. Make any morning a special one, I know you’ll be glad you did.

For this Overnight Breakfast Casserole Recipe, I use a 5-inch baking dish which holds about 1 1/2 to 2 cups. You can also use a small loaf pan or any similar smaller sized baking dish.

  1. I’ve made this many times and change it up with whats in the fridge, so easy to put together plus it fits in the toaster oven which keeps the house cooler. Thank you so much for all the work and love you put into making these recipes easier for us to enjoy!!!! It makes it nice to set the table and enjoy a special meal instead of something on the fly!!!! Keep up the good work, I love sharing these with friends……

  2. Thank you! Thank you!! I have wanted food/meals for one for the last 40 years. I have tried many of your foods, and haven’t found one I didn’t like. Thank you again.


  3. These are some really great meals. I love the breakfast casserole, but I have not been successful with them. Thinking about practicing them now so that I have it perfect this Christmas so that I can enjoy my guests and not spend so much time in the kitchen. Pinning them and starting this weekend!
