Sweet Brunch Casseroles
If your crowd skews toward the sweet side, you’re going to want to keep these easy casseroles on your radar, since they’re even better when made ahead of time. These casseroles can all be prepped the day before, then stashed in the fridge, so all that’s left to do is pop it in the oven in the morning.
Baked Brunch Sweets
Most yeasted breads, like our strawberry swirly buns and cinnamon rolls, can be made right up to the point when you shape the bread, at which point you can refrigerate overnight and finish the recipe the next day. When you need something that can be prepped and baked totally in advance, coffee cake, muffins, and scones are always a good idea.
