This is the perfect kind of recipe for my husband and I, and others who may share our personalities. He is definitely a morning person while I am very much a night owl. Thus, this sunrise breakfast casserole is perfect for us. Being the night person, I can get it ready for the overnight refrigeration while I am hanging out at night; my early bird husband can take care of the morning requirements; then we can eat a hearty breakfast together. Why not see how it works for your family?
