I am sure I am known for a few things, but unfortunately “chronically late” is something I may best be known for. I really try to be on time! I set my alarm early, lay my clothes out before bed, and I meticulously plan my exit from the house, only to fall short and arrive ever-so-slightly late for pretty much everything.
Anything to save time is appreciated, so making breakfast the night before is something a girl like me appreciates!
Last weekend I decided to try this make-ahead breakfast casserole for our busy Saturday morning. My son has soccer on Saturday’s pretty early (ok, it’s 10am, but when you are chronically late that seems early!), so having something I could just pop in the oven seemed like the perfect idea!
This casserole features Beretta Farms Organic Honey-Garlic Sausages, and they were delivered right to my door! I live outside of Toronto, so often delivery services don’t quite reach me, but Beretta Farms brought my groceries right to my home so I could save a bit more time.
Beretta Farms offers local, farm-fresh, healthy option foods. They only sell grass fed, organic and naturally raised products, without the use of antibiotics or added hormones.
The recipe had very few ingredients and was super easy to make ahead! It took me very little time to make the casserole, pop it in the fridge, and the next morning when my alarm went off I put it in the oven and voila! Breakfast was served and it was so much more impressive than cereal!
Not only were we on time for soccer that morning, but we had time for a Starbucks stop. It was a miracle really.
Check out this easy to make and yummy recipe below. The recipe is from Cynthia Beretta, founder of Beretta Farms.Thanks so much to Beretta Farms for delivering some fabulous food to our family, and for saving us some previous time in the morning!
