Christmas is this weekend. Don’t spend time in the the kitchen while the kids beg to open gifts and miss out visiting with guest. This is a great make ahead casserole. I used a spicy sausage and added a little additional spice, but it’s up to you on how you like it. It also freezes great it you want to make it ahead and freeze it as a gift.
Sausage McMuffin Casserole
(Adapted from Plain Chicken)
4 English muffins, split (Bays)
8- oz breakfast sausage, cooked and crumbled

Grease an 8-inch square baking dish. Cut each half of the English muffins into 6 pieces. Add half of the cubed English muffins in a single layer. Top with half of the sausage and ½ cup of the cheese. Layer the remaining English muffins and sausage and ½ cup more cheese.
Whisk together the eggs, milk, salt, and pepper in a medium bowl until combined. Pour the egg mixture evenly over the casserole. Wrap the baking dish with plastic wrap and place it in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour, or up to 1 day.
Bake at 325 degrees 45 to 50 minutes.
