There’s not much more that I like more on a lazy weekend morning than a warm, hearty breakfast – especially when I don’t have to do much more than turn on the oven.

With just a few minutes of prep time the night before, all I need to do in the morning to have this Mexican Skillet Breakfast Casserole on the table is wait 30 minutes for it to bake – which is just the right amount of time to get in a quiet cup of coffee before the madness of the day starts.

I don’t know about you, but this time of year is a hectic rush around our house: shopping, decorating, traveling, and entertaining- which doesn’t leave a lot of time to spend in the kitchen.  That said, this is also the time of year when we tend to host quite a few breakfasts, so I’m always looking for ways to prepare my menu items ahead of time.

Not only that, but I need easy – because until I’ve had at least two cups of coffee, I’m pretty much worthless in the mornings.

So with the help of Bisquick, all I need to do do to have this simple but filling casserole ready to eat is brown some sausage, cut up a few veggies, and mix a few items together.  I can do all of that the evening before, pop it in the fridge to chill overnight and then just bake in the morning.  Easy-peasy.  And so, so good.

The great thing about this casserole is that it is easily customizable to your family’s tastes: add in whatever veggies you’d like.  A combination of red onion and green peppers would be extra fabulous in this {though you don’t see it pictured here since Doodle won’t eat a single thing green or onion-like in appearance}.  Want it spicier?  Add in spicy sausage, chorizo, or even some chilies in adobo.

Served with a side of fruit and/or hashbrowns, this Mexican Skillet Breakfast Casserole is the perfect make-ahead breakfast for holiday entertaining – so you can spend your time with friends and family, and not slaving away in the kitchen!
