If you’re having a hard time getting the kids (and yourself!) out the door in the morning, then a breakfast casserole can be a time saver! Just make a big one on the weekend and serve it up all week long. Here’s a huge list of 23 delicious breakfast casseroles to get you started!

23 Make-Ahead Breakfast Casseroles

One thing every one of my busy mama friends tells me is this: Mornings are freaking hard with little kids.

Remember those heady pre-kids days when our coffee was hot, our showers were hotter, and we could listen to the news without the background noise of cartoons?

The glory days, man.

But those days of calm mornings are behind us (and, eventually, ahead of us)

So for here, for now, we’re in the get-everyone-out-the-door-without-going-berserk phase.

And on the crazy days, having breakfast made ahead of time is a life saver.

A sanity saver, too. Time saver, even!

Breakfast casseroles are the best at this. Make a big pan (or two!) on Sunday, divide it up, and BOOM PRESTO, breakfast is over and it’s time to go get your shoes on.

I’ve rounded up some of my favorite breakfast casseroles from the interwebs here for you!

Also, I helpfully separated them into the three categories I find most breakfast casseroles fall into: Paleo/Keto/Healthy/Gluten-Free, Sweet Casseroles, and Basic Breakfast Casseroles.

Bonus? Any of these casseroles are great for the holiday season as well!

Oh, and here’s a tip: If you want to make your own breakfast casserole with what you’ve already got on hand, this is my basic ratio. I like to start with this, and then I play around with flavors:

  • Line a 9×13” baking pan with bread cubes.
  • Mix 8-10 eggs with 1 ½ cups half and half and pour on top
  • Add cheese and protein, like sausage
  • Bake at 350*F for about 10 minutes, until the middle of the pan is set.

Here’s the rest of the list; I’d love to hear your favorites in the comments below!
