Cheesy Sausage Overnight Breakfast Casserole

That is one of the many reasons we are so excited to be partnering with Jones Dairy Farm.

I am sure I have mentioned it before, but I am the “queen of over overnight and make ahead breakfasts”. It’s not some exciting honor that has been bequeathed to me. It actually arose out of necessity and I blame my mom as I am sure it’s some gene that she passed along to me. I am a total night owl. I can go until the wee hours of the morning without batting an eye, but I am slow going when I wake up.

I remember trying to get my mom to wake up Christmas morning so we could open presents. It just about took a pot of coffee and a funnel. haha. In her defense, she was up until 4am ‘waiting for Santa’. 

So, needless to say, Christmas morning breakfast would be a major challenge or it would be served at lunch time if I didn’t plan ahead.  So, I started creating ways to make breakfast the night before and enjoy it the next morning hot out of the oven, like these and these.

Feeding a crowd during the holidays is that much less stressful too. I stumble out of bed and grab the casserole that I prepared the night before (during my normal hours), and I toss it in the oven. Now, I have time to wake up while breakfast is cooking. Easy peasy!
My latest obsession is this Cheesy Sausage Overnight Breakfast Casserole that starts with Jones Dairy Farm All-Natural Pork Sausage Roll. It is my absolute favorite sausage. With just 4 ingredients (Pork, water, salt, spices) I can feel good about feeding my family.
I love being able to start with a flavorful canvas and really take it over the top. So, I fry up the sausage with red pepper and maple syrup to create a heavenly fusion of my favorite flavors. It is heat and sweet all in one savory bite. Imagine that speckled throughout this fabulous breakfast!
