What you want on Christmas morning ó a house that effortlessly fills itself with joyous sounds and delicious aromas. What you usually get on Christmas morning ó towers of wrapping paper, hermetically sealed toys that can be opened by no human, and a kitchen that demands way too much of your attention.
I canít help you with the wrapping paper or packaging, but I can make your holiday breakfast a little easier. Iím a big believer that Christmas morning is meant to be spent under the tree, not at the stove. And yet I still want the house to fill itself with delicious aromas. My solution? A do-ahead breakfast casserole that I can prep the night before, then just pop into the oven to bake unattended while gift insanity commences. So this year I created an indulgent dish that is equal parts casserole, hash browns, fruit crumble and French toast. Because.... why not? Itís Christmas.
This recipe makes plenty so itís easy to feed a crowd, particularly if you have guests joining the fun closer to brunch. The leftovers are easily reheated. I like it served with a drizzle of maple syrup.
