We spend a lot time within the days main as much as Thanksgiving making ready the home for friends, chopping veggies and getting pie crusts made, and dry-brining the turkey, that come Thanksgiving morning, we’re completely at a loss when it’s time for breakfast. The very last thing we need to do is cook dinner an elaborate meal, utilizing up valuable dishes, counter and oven house, and time earlier than working for hours on our dinner feast. Fortunately Ree Drummond, creator of The Pioneer Girl Cooks―A 12 months of Holidayshas the proper resolution. She created a hearty make-ahead Thanksgiving breakfast casserole recipe you can simply pop within the oven on Thanksgiving morning and serve to the family as soon as it’s heated up.
We love the mixture of candy, savory, and Thanksgiving-y elements Drummond makes use of to make her breakfast casserole recipe. There’s sage breakfast sausage, which mimics the flavors in our favourite stuffing and is bolstered by contemporary sage; there are sweet-tart Granny Smith apples; and the bottom of the dish is created from cinnamon raisin English muffins. Add in a dozen eggs, milk, and a complete heap of grated white cheddar, and it’s the form of breakfast individuals will request 12 months after 12 months.
Better of all, this dish is supposed to be made forward of time. The sausage and aromatics are cooked the evening earlier than, after which the entire casserole is assembled and coated (this The Pioneer Girl baking dish with lid is ideal), then rests within the fridge in a single day.
The subsequent morning, pull it out of the fridge whereas the oven pre-heats, then bake it for 45 minutes to an hour, till the highest of the casserole is golden brown and crisp across the edges. Serve with a few of the make forward turkey gravy from Ina Garten’s make-ahead Thanksgiving menu, and your friends shall be getting the very best style of the meal that’s but to return. Speak about an appetizer!
