18 Easy Breakfast Casseroles Ideal for Brunch and Beyond

Casseroles are a hit for a reason—they require little prep work, are perfect for a crowd, and are absolutely delicious. If you’re hosting brunch or attending a potluck party, consider making one of our breakfast casserole recipes. Whether you’re team sweet or team savory, there’s something here for everyone.

Love the creamy nature of bread pudding? Try making our Panettone French Toast Casserole during the holiday season. The dried fruit in the classic Italian treat adds texture and sweetness to each individual slice (and it’s the perfect canvas for absorbing a rich custard). Serve with powdered sugar and maple syrup for a breakfast bite that borders on dessert, but we promise you won’t hear anyone complaining about that.

In the mood for something savory? Our Turkey-Pastrami Croque-Madame Casserole is a crowd-friendly twist on the classic French ham and cheese sandwich. Ciabatta bread is nestled between a sharp béchamel sauce in a baking dish, then topped with sliced turkey pastrami and shredded Gruyère cheese. The final finishing touches are essential—fried eggs and chopped chives.

We also have two traditional breakfast recipes—a bacon and egg casserole inspired by the fan-favorite breakfast sandwich and cinnamon rolls. If you can’t decide which of these fabulous 18 breakfast casserole recipes to make, you can’t go wrong with those tried-and-true ideas. Along the way, you’ll find make-ahead recipes (looking at you, Broccoli-Cheddar Hash-Brown Casserole) and several spectacular iterations of healthy oatmeal with fruit and nuts.

No matter which recipe you choose, one thing is guaranteed: Your early morning guests will love digging into these breakfast casserole recipes.
