My 2 Favorite Make-Ahead Brunch Recipes

Ooh! I am so excited to share these recipes with you! Whenever I make them for a gathering, there are usually no leftover. I very often use these recipes as a starting point for weekly breakfasts for my family too.

For every day breakfasts, depending on which recipe I’m making, I’ll reduce sugar, cheese or butter, sub in a healthier milk option for half and half, and add in things like chia seeds, nuts, flax seed meal, etc. This just keeps it healthier for a daily breakfast.

When I’m cooking for others  though, it’s full fat, full sugar, full cheese and full deliciousness.

You can make these the night before and put them in the oven in the morning, or just bake and eat. They are both extremely forgiving and versatile.

These recipes are basically naturally gluten free – you just need to have gluten free oats on hand for the baked oatmeal. If you eat a lot of oats, here’s where I get mine for the best price.



Best Ever Egg Casserole

You can make this healthier by adding some spinach and reducing the cheese…but really – a little splurge every now and then is just fine!



Amish Baked Oatmeal

I love this recipe so much! You can add anything: nuts, flax, chia seeds, raw coconut, etc…It’s amazing! I like to add cinnamon and vanilla! I use almond milk and coconut oil, or soy free earth balance for the butter. I also double this one. If you don’t, you’ll wish you did.
