Welcome back to Day 2 of our Reindeer Recipes Blog Tour! If you are visiting from Brittany’s Pantry, I’m glad you are here. At Totally Tailgates, Southern Sideline Hospitality is the name of the game, and I have a delish recipe for you today that will take you from a bowl game tailgate to a formal Christmas brunch!
My family loves a big breakfast or brunch for special holidays. December means bowl games, and it’s so fun to have the gang over for brunch before kickoff! For morning entertaining, I like to select one main dish and build the morning menu around that one, delicious entree. One of my no-fail recipes and a family favorite is my Country Breakfast Casserole. The best part?!?! You can make this the night before!
Assemble the casserole as directed, but instead of baking immediately, cover it with tin foil and refrigerate over night. In the morning, just bake & enjoy. The maple sausage and sage will fill your home with a savory aroma. Brew a hot pot of coffee, and everyone will be downstairs and at your kitchen table quickly! This is one recipe that has never let me down – it’s rich & cheesy!
The main players on the Country Breakfast Casserole team are eggs, grits, cheese and maple sausage. Regular sausage may be substituted, but for maximum yumminess, use the maple flavored sausage. 🙂 This casserole truly shines if you have a house full of company for Christmas, Easter or Thanksgiving. You can serve them a hearty, AMAZING breakfast without spending hours in the kitchen!
This is my go-to recipe for early game day watch parties in the fall! Your friends will hold their own pep rally for ya when you serve Country Breakfast Casserole with spicy Bloody Mary’s and a bowl of fresh fruit!WAIT! 🙂 There’s more Reindeer Recipe fun waiting for you.
