Christmas Brunch Casserole

I have always loved having a hearty breakfast on Christmas morning, after all the gifts have been opened. This Christmas Brunch Casserole is just perfect, since it can be prepared the day ahead and simply popped into the oven on Christmas morning.

1 pound bacon
2 onions chopped
2 cups fresh sliced mushrooms
1 tablespoon butter
4 cups frozen has brown potatoes, thawed
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon garlic salt
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
4 eggs
1 1/2 cups milk
1 pinch dried parsley
1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese

Place bacon in a large skillet. Cook over medium-high heat until evenly browned. Drain and set aside. Add the mushrooms and onion to the skillet; cook and stir until the onion has softened and become translucent and the mushrooms are tender. About 5 minutes.

Grease a 9 x 13 casserole dish with a tablespoon of butter. Place potatoes in the bottom of prepared dish. Sprinkle with salt, garlic salt and pepper. Top with crumbled bacon, then top with onions and mushrooms.

In a mixing bowl, beat the eggs with the milk and parsley. Pour over the casserole and top with grated cheese. Cover and refrigerate overnight.

In the morning, preheat oven to 400 degrees. Bake for one hour or until set.

    I usually do a frnch toast casserole so this will be a nice change or maybe addition to xmas morning. It’s so nice to do a casserole as it is always so busy with the opening of presents

    This looks totally perfect. Bacon, onions, cheese, mushrooms – all totally my favorites! And to have it all prepped the night before? OMG. I’m not waiting till Christmas for this, going to the market TODAY. Thanks a LOT for this one! (I may sit down and gobble the whole thing myself!)
