Every year on Christmas morning, my mom would wake up before the triplets and I stormed the Christmas tree to make a delectable one-pot breakfast to eat after all the presents had been opened. Her Sausage and Egg Casserole was (and still is) my favorite thing about that Christmas morning, except for all the gifts, of course, and the nerdy way we still gather around the tree in our jammies, plop down on the floor, and wait patiently for mom to distribute a gift to each of us so we can open them at the same time—only now we can drink mimosas while we do it, which makes the waiting so much more fun than when we were younger.
As luck would have it, I planned on drinking some mimosas for breakfast this weekend with Doug and his roommates (why not, right? It was Sunday!), and I wanted to come up with something new and different to serve with them. Luckily mom’s wonderful casserole came to mind and I used her recipe as inspiration for my own breakfast bake.
