Make-Ahead Breakfast Casseroles

When I think about make-ahead breakfasts, casseroles (both sweet and savory) always come to mind. Prep one the night before, and then all you need to do is pop it in the oven in the morning. In fact, French toast casseroles, stratas, and any recipes made with bread and custard are even better after sitting overnight in the fridge.
