Description

Make-ahead breakfast casseroles are a time-honored tradition, especially when they include cheese and lots of bacon. This one goes with frozen hash browns for a jump-start, and can be assembled the day before and baked off in the morning. If your family loves hot sauce, you can add some to the custard as well as serving some at the table. The recipe is a Yummly original created by Ashley Strickland Freeman.
