Healthy Christmas Breakfast Recipes

Nothing's easier than heat-and-serve. Our hearty, healthy breakfast casseroles can be assembled the day before and refrigerated. Come Christmas morning—or any holiday morning—all you need to do is warm them in the oven. That leaves you to hang in your warm jammies and tear open presents while home-cooked aromas—warm cinnamon and sweet apples, smoky bacon and spicy sausage—fill your home.
