I love make ahead breakfasts. My favorites involve baked oatmeal, baked egg casseroles or French toast bakes. They are all simple to make and perfect to serve to a crowd. The fact that you can make it the night before when you may have a little extra time so that it is ready to throw into the oven in the morning is so awesome.

I wanted to create a perfect holiday breakfast. This would be amazing on Christmas morning with some bacon, fruit, lots of coffee and maybe an egg bake. I love cranberries year round but know that most people prefer them around the holidays- they do really remind me of the holidays! This would be awesome around Thanksgiving as well to use up extra cranberry sauce.

Fresh cranberry sauce is so easy to make! Do not be afraid to make it- it is so much tastier and fresher than the canned versions! I used cream cheese because I knew that it would taste awesome with the cranberries for a cheesecake-like consistency and flavor. This dish turned out awesome and I would definitely make it again.

You can feel free to use your favorite berries if you want to do something other than cranberry. I think blueberries, strawberries or raspberries would be good. If you want to indulge a bit, I think that using light cherry pie filling would be really tasty!
