Spinach, Bacon, Egg and Cheese Breakfast Casserole

This spinach, bacon and egg breakfast casserole is a great make-ahead meal to serve for breakfast on a holiday or vacation morning! Because, on the one hand, casseroles that you can throw together the night before make life really simple the next morning.

On the other hand, there are some mornings where a casserole sounds really, really scrumptious, but you didn’t have the foresight to prepare one the night before.

Granted, there are a few “day of” casseroles that work out okay, like this Walnut French Toast Bread Pudding Casserole that I whipped up on a whim one Saturday morning.

But most of the time egg casseroles with any sort of bread involved need the time to soak. Overnight time to soak.

Save these casseroles for the season where meal planning is inevitable: Christmas morning, Easter morning, vacations, etc.
