Tired of cold cereal or cheese toast for your holiday breakfast?
Do you starve yourself on holiday mornings waiting on the "big" meal?

Try one of these favorite make-ahead casseroles for your next holiday breakfast! The first two are sweet, the apple cobbler is made in the crockpot and uses granola, and the last one makes a very hearty "meat and potato" casserole.

Make-Ahead: French Toast Bundt Pan Breakfast

This is a cross between coffee cake and cinnamon rolls!

12 (very cold) unbaked dinner rolls
2 eggs
1/3-cup liquid hazelnut coffee creamer
1/4-cup pancake syrup or honey
3-tablespoon butter, melted
2-tablespoon sugar
1/2-tablespoon ground cinnamon
1/2-tablespoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger

Buy frozen rolls or make the rolls yourself, but this works best if the dough is still very chilled from the freezer/refrigerator before the dough starts rising.

Cut rolls in fourths.  Combine the other ingredients in a bowl.  Dip rolls in mixture and place in Bundt pan which has been sprayed with non-stick spray.  Pour remaining mixture over rolls.

For make-ahead, cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate at this time.

When ready to prepare, loosen cover and let rise at room temperature until rolls rise to the top of the pan.

Bake at 350°F for 35 minutes.  Invert onto a serving platter.  Drizzle with syrup and powdered sugar.  Slice and serve with additional syrup.

Easy: French Toast Casserole

Everything could be mixed the night before and then poured over the French bread in the morning before baking.

1 loaf French bread
6 eggs
3 cups milk
1/3-cup sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract

Spray a 13x9 pan with Pam. Tear up the bread and place it in the pan. Combine the remaining ingredients together. Pour them over the bread Bake at 375°F for 45 minutes. Dust with powdered sugar. Serve with syrup.
