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!

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.

How To Make holiday overnight brunch eggs

  • Eggs and milk whisked together.
    Mix eggs and milk in a bowl; beat well. Set aside to add additional ingredients.
  • Browning sausage.
    Brown one tube or package of ground pork sausage into small pieces and drain well.
  • Crisp bacon crumbled on a paper towel.
    If you are adding the optional ingredient of bacon, cook well, crumble, and drain.
  • Meat and cheese added to the eggs.
    Add meat mixture and 1/2 package of the Shredded Cheddar and Monterey Jack cheese to egg mixture. Add chiles to the egg mixture if you are using the optional ingredient (I make a smaller pan with chiles for those who like a kick).
  • Grease baking dish sprinkled with flour.
    Spray glass oblong pan or casserole dish with non-stick oil. Dust the bottom of the pan with flour.
  • Cheese sprinkled into the pan.
    Sprinkle some Monterey Jack over the flour. This will form your crust.

    Pour in egg mixture.

    Cover and let sit overnight in the refrigerator.
  • Covered casserole baking in the oven.
    Bake at 350 degrees for 60-70 minutes (covered).
  • Continuing to bake the egg casserole.
    You may uncover for the last 5-10 minutes of baking. Enjoy!
