20 Freezer-Friendly Breakfast Casseroles
Southerners love a casserole. When hard times hit a neighbor in need, it takes about five minutes for someone to start up a meal train full of comforting casseroles to help the family out. During the holidays, sideboards overflow with classics like green bean, sweet potato, and hash brown casseroles. And on any given Saturday or Sunday, you can bet there will be sweet and savory breakfast casseroles warming up Southerners’ tables at brunch. Whether you’re pulling out that 13x9 dish at breakfast, lunch, or dinner, one of the best things about casseroles is that they freeze beautifully. With these freezer-friendly breakfast casseroles, you’ll always have a hearty brunch at the ready.
