Growing up on Christmas day, my sister, brother and I would come down the wooden staircase in our home built by my great grandfather, open presents, and enjoy a Christmas breakfast prepared by my father on the griddle. Although we don't still walk down that same staircase, we are planning to enjoy a small, safe Christmas together with breakfast at my parents house.
An easy, make ahead breakfast your entire family can enjoy is a breakfast casserole that takes little to no time at all. I have previously posted a crockpot breakfast casserole recipe, and although delicious, takes around three hours to bake. This current recipe is perfect because you can make it the night before and it's super adaptable, making it easy to add ingredients based on what veggies and cheeses your family likes.
You will need 2 pounds of your favorite pork sausage (I use Jimmy Dean or Peck's local sausage), 12 large eggs, 1 cup sour cream, 1/4 cup milk, 4 green onions, 1/2 green bell pepper diced, 1/2 red bell pepper diced, 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese.
Begin by cooking your sausage till it crumbles and is cooked through, and set aside. Next, cook your bell peppers and onion in that same skillet and set aside (here is where you can add any veggies your family prefers).
Preheat your oven to 350 and spray a 9 x 13 pan with cooking spray. Combine in a bowl the eggs, sour cream, milk, cheese, salt and pepper until combined. Add in your sautéed veggies and sausage. Pour mixture into a greased 9 x 13 pan and bake for 40-50 minutes or until the edges are set. Leftover casserole can keep in your fridge and enjoyed within 3-4 days.
My mother made this casserole for Thanksgiving and we have begged her to make it this year for Christmas.
For a Holiday dinner, try making Gene's butter basted pan roasted steaks, accompanied by mashed potatoes and some green beans.
