Our Easy Christmas Morning Tradition

 One of my traditions is something that makes Christmas morning sooooooo easy.  
I serve a breakfast casserole on Christmas morning.
 Y'all know I don't like to cook and even though Mr. Fanatic used to be a chef, I actually make it! LOL!!! So, you know it has to be easy! I combine all six  ingredients the night before and put it in the refrigerator. When I get up on Christmas morning I pop it in the oven then call the kids down to open presents. By the time we are finished opening presents, breakfast is ready. YAY!!!

The casserole looks like this:
Christmas breakfast casserole, Christmas, breakfast casserole

I'm sure there are many of these recipes on the internet and you can add extra stuff to your liking, but here's the recipe I received several years ago from my youngest daughter's 5th grade teacher:

Breakfast Casserole

1 pound of your favorite breakfast sausage- fully cooked & cut into pieces
1 can of biscuits (flaky) - I used to use Pillsbury Grands, now I use Trader Joes( had to ask the teacher what a can of biscuits was-lol!)
6 eggs- (beaten)
2 cups of milk
1/2 to 1 tsp salt
1 cup of shredded cheddar cheese

Grease casserole dish. ( I use a large deep Corningware dish with a lid) Lay  split in half biscuits in the bottom of the dish. Add cooked sausage pieces to top of biscuits. Add shredded cheese. 
Mix up beaten eggs, milk, salt in separate bowl, then pour egg mixture over biscuits sausage and cheese. (You can add other ingredients you like such as peppers or bacon, etc.)
Cover and set in refrigerator overnight.

Bake at 350 for approx 40-50 minutes. This will depend on the dish you use, so watch it after 40 minutes. I cook mine until the top us just starting to brown. Serves apx 6-8
That's it! Easy!

Hope you like it!

  9. Good morning Pam. I was reading your comment on my post regarding the corn sak I made for my brother who has back pain. I immediately looked up a TENS unit. My brother is much better now, but my husband suffered a freak incident back in May while in Mexico, where he was given a shot for pain, and the shot was inadvertently given into a nerve. He suffered immediate, and excruciating pain. He has been in terrible pain now since. Under the care of several doctors. He is taking medicine for the nerve pain, and several other things as well. He went from being a a very active guy to unable to participate in the things he loves guy!!! He is suffering all the time from this pain, and they just don't know how long, or if it will get better. I am going to look into this. THANK YOU!!
