One way I know fall is truly here is when I wake up craving anything but my usual bowl of yogurt and fruit. With the arrival of brisk mornings, I find myself dusting off my slippers and wanting something warm to fill my stomach. These 17 savory and sweet breakfast casseroles are exactly that.

What’s better is that almost all of them can be prepared the night before and simply baked in the oven before you’re ready to eat. That means you can stay in bed a little while longer, which is always a plus on cool fall mornings.

The bonus for most of these is that they can be made ahead, so all you need to do is toss whichever one you’re making in the oven when you wake up.
