We started preparing this dish Christmas Eve for a special family brunch on Christmas morning and look forward to it every holiday season. It is very special and delicious!

Blue Ribbon Recipe

Everyone should have a great breakfast casserole in their recipe box and this low-carb one does not disappoint. Whether serving for a holiday breakfast or a brunch with friends, it can be prepared the night before and then just pop it in the oven an hour before you're ready to eat. It's a little different than other recipes because there is no bread. We opted to add both the sausage and bacon, because why not... The final result is savory, super cheesy, and very good.

Ingredients For holiday overnight brunch eggs

  • 1
    dozen eggs
  • 1 c
  • 1 pkg
    ground pork sausage
  • 6 slice
    bacon, optional
  • 16 oz

How To Make holiday overnight brunch eggs

  • Eggs and milk whisked together.
    Add the eggs and milk to a large bowl; beat well. Set aside.
  • Browning sausage.
    Brown sausage, breaking it into small pieces, and drain well.
  • Crisp bacon crumbled on a paper towel.
    If you are adding bacon, cook it well, crumble, and drain.
  • Meat and cheese added to the eggs.
    Add the meat and 1/2 the cheeses to the egg mixture. Add the chiles, if using. (I like to make a smaller pan with chiles for those who like a kick).
  • Grease baking dish sprinkled with flour.
    Spray a glass oblong pan or casserole dish with cooking oil. Dust the bottom of the pan with the flour.
  • Cheese sprinkled into the pan.
    Sprinkle some Monterey Jack over the flour. This will form your crust.
  • Egg mixture poured into baking dish.
    Pour in the egg mixture.
  • Cheese sprinkled on top.
    Top with remaining cheeses.
  • Covered baking dish in the refridgerator.
    Cover with foil and let sit overnight in the refrigerator.
  • Covered casserole baking in the oven.
    Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Keep covered and bake for 60-70 minutes.
  • Continuing to bake the egg casserole.
    You may uncover for the last 5-10 minutes of baking. Enjoy!
