I don’t know about you but when the weekend rolls around I don’t always feel like getting up early to make up big weekend breakfasts, I like lazing in bed as much as everybody. That is why it is great to be able to make breakfast ahead of time. Whether you make up a strata or a fabulous French toast casserole the night before, whoever gets up first just has to take it out of the fridge, pop it in the oven at the desired temperature and have it ready for when the rest of the clan wakes up; no fuss, and no mess!
This works really well even for early mornings like Christmas, when the kids [so that means you too] are up early and they want to get to opening presents – you can pop it in the oven and just sit and enjoy the mayhem while breakfast is getting prepared.
Here is an easy brunch strata from Kraft Canada– If you are gluten free you can use GF bread instead of the regular bread.
This is a recipe that I have used in the past and has been a hit at Christmas time; it is very sweet and gooey, but oh so good! So if the kids aren’t hyper enough from all the unwrapping they have done on Christmas morning, they can get jump started on this recipe from allrecipes.com
Enjoy, hope you get those extra zzz’s 😉
