Sausage and egg bake 

Print Friendly and PDF

This is my go to for when I know I want a warm filling breakfast but don't want to wake up and cook it! What do I mean? I cook it the night before.  It's easy to put together, bake, and place in the fridge... ready to heat and eat!  
I am totally not a morning person. I never have been. My poor dad.  Him being my alarm clock growing up probably took years off his life!
My kids wake up nice and early and expect to be fed immediately! I like having options like this over cereal and I think you will, too.
