Usually around the holidays breakfast is a second thought to me. I know it’s the most important meal of the day, but with running errands, wrapping presents at crazy hours, and trying to make it to the post office it sometimes slips my mind even if I just sat my toddler down to eat.
Sometimes it’s past the normal breakfast hours before I get to eat, so my breakfast turns into brunch more often than not.
Now that Christmas is only two days away things are really going to get busy around here, especially if we get any out of town visitors.
The worst is having to wake up and cook breakfast on top of Christmas Eve or Christmas day dinner. That’s just way too much cooking in a short period of time.
Who wants to spend all day and night in the kitchen and miss out on friends and family? Not me!

This isn’t just any plain-old casserole. Oh no! It’s a loaded French toast casserole.
