Making Breakfast Easy
Croutons make this Overnight Breakfast Casserole so darn easy… and tasty! No slicing bread, no crumbs to clean up, just open and go. And while this casserole sits in the fridge all night, those croutons soak up loads of eggs and cream. Add a little cheese, sausage and a few more ingredients and you have a breakfast that everyone will ask for time and time again!
