The holidays are approaching very quickly and with holidays comes company! Having family and friends stay all Thanksgiving weekend or for an extended Christmas? It’s hard enough to have to plan the actual holiday meal, but what about feeding your guests for the remainder of their visit? These recipes don’t have to be brunch-exclusive, they can also be used for breakfast or even dinner! These are just five of the MANY out there. Don’t forget the sides like fresh fruit, bacon and sausage and make sure you stock up on butter and syrup! Just click on the picture of each item to get to the original recipe.
Sausage Hashbrown Casserole
This is a classic breakfast/brunch recipe and can be found in numerous places on the internet as well as in many cookbooks. I chose this recipe because the steps are clear, there are a lot of pictures and it got a lot of good reviews. This recipe can be put together ahead of time and then just popped in the oven when ready to bake.
Overnight French Toast Casserole
This is another recipe you can prep ahead of time and cook when ready. So easy to wake up pull out of the frig and pop in the oven. The nice thing about French Toast is that you can put out toppings to everyone’s liking. We love cinnamon and sugar on ours, but maple syrup, fresh fruit and powdered sugar are all yummy too!
Good Old Fashioned Pancakes
We used to be Bisquick pancake eaters, but one weekend morning we ran out. Upon looking for a recipe to make pancakes, we came across this one and will never go back to a packaged pancake mix. This recipe is SO good. They are so good on their own, but we’ve also done a chocolate chip version and a blueberry version- YUM!
Baked Steel Cut Oatmeal
I am not a huge fan of oatmeal, but this recipe is really good! There are many variations to the flavor of this dish by adding different fruit. Just a note, mine took a bit longer to cook then the recipe states. Could have been my oven.
Crock Pot Cinnamon Roll Casserole
How easy is this? Your guests will love waking up to the smell of cinnamon buns and if you have any children or children guests, they are bound to love this!
Oven Roasted Breakfast Potatoes
We can’t forget the potatoes! Breakfast potatoes are my favorite breakfast food! This is a simple recipe and definitely can be put together the night before and baked in the morning.
