I love Christmas. I have loved Christmas for as long as I can remember. 

When I was little, I loved going to Christmas Even Mass at our church and then going to my Aunt & Uncle’s house for Christmas dinner (lasagna).

I loved waking up on Christmas morning (waiting for my Mom & Dad to go downstairs before my brother and I) and opening our presents.

I loved that my Mom made a Sausage Breakfast Casserole on Christmas morning.  This is the recipe that I am sharing with you today.

Make- Ahead sausage breakfast casserole

I loved that everyone came over to eat breakfast at our house and enjoy our gifts with us.

I have carried on all of these traditions with our own kids, including the casserole (well, lets be honest:  most Christmas Eve nights, my Mom gives it to me, prepared, so that all that I have to do is stick it in the oven on Christmas morning and it is ready when everyone comes to our house to eat!)

I am going to share the recipe with you today…  it is so good!

Prepare this meal on Christmas Eve or the day before you want to serve it.

I’ll try to share more great Christmas Casseroles in the days to come!

Here is the recipe for my very favorite Christmas Morning Sausage Breakfast Casserole :


  • 1 pound Bob Evans Original Recipe sausage roll
  • 2 cups sliced mushrooms
  • 8 eggs
  • 3 cups milk
  • 1 T. dry mustard
  • Salt & Pepper
  • 10 slices white bread (cubed)
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese


  1. In skillet, brown the sausage & mushrooms
  2. In a separate bowl: beat 8 eggs, 3 cups of milk, 1 T. dry mustard, salt & pepper 

In a 9X13 glass dish or pan…   you will want to LAYER:

  • Bottom- 10 slices of white bread, cubed
  • Middle- Sausage & mushroom mixture
  • Cover the egg mixture over everything

 COVER with foil

Refrigerate for 9 hours or overnight

On Christmas morning, put the casserole in the oven when you begin to open presents and it will be ready in an hour.

Serve it some orange slices (or orange juice) and cinnamon rolls.

  1. My favorite Christmas memory is the year I thought my parents bought a playhouse for my sister, but it was really a doghouse for the puppy they got me!

    1. That’s so nice! My grandparents are in PA & my other ones have passed on, so I love this answer!

  2. I think you’re missing a few steps in your sausage mushroom casserole? When do you add the eggs, the cheese and the milk? The night before and then cover it with foil and cook the whole thing or do you add it just prior to cooking it? You left all that step out.

    1. You’re right! Thanks! I added it- it gets poured over the layers, before covering with foil (before refrigerating)

  3. i missed the part that said how hot is the oven and for how long do you bake it.
