Cherri & Sharon’s Eggs for Brunch

This is a great egg casserole that is prepared the night before and then baked in the morning. My mom, Cherri, and her friend Sharon created this casserole for their many brunch events that they hosted.

I have provided my adjusted recipe which is a little more accurate than the original. I believe the original recipe didn’t have enough eggs. But, I’ve provided both to you again, so you can compare. This was the inspiration for my Skillet Eggs for Brunch recipe that I posted earlier in the year.

I’m sorry the picture doesn’t do it justice, but it was Christmas morning and I was tired. I didn’t have the time or energy to create the perfect picture. 🙂 Also, I used wheat bread which changes the color of the casserole.

This is also perfect for when you have company, you can wake up and pop it in the oven before you start getting ready. It will be done by the time everyone wakes up.

Enjoy!
