New Year’s Day is the most relaxing day of every year. It’s the day we spend time with family and friends and discuss resolutions that we are never going to follow through with. This is the first New Year’s Day I didn’t indulge in a bloody mary or mimosa first thing in the morning. We spent NYE a little differently this year, as we relaxed in comfortable clothes and ate yummy food. My husband helped himself to a few extra cocktails while I grazed on tacos in the kitchen.

I wanted to make a dish for New Years Day that would satisfy my sweet cravings and my husband’s partial hangover. It had to be hearty enough for him. I landed on a sausage and egg casserole for breakfast.

I’m all over casseroles these days. I can’t be in the kitchen for more than 30 minutes without the baby requesting a 10 minute nap so I thought this dish would be perfect! And even better, this dish can be made the night before so for all of you hungover people, consider all the work done when you wake up.

You can walk to the kitchen, preheat the oven, wash an Excedrin migraine down with a large glass of ice water, pull the casserole dish out and put it in the oven, go back to bed and wake up in 35 minutes with breakfast served.
