10 Breakfast Ideas for Overnight Guests


10 breakfast ideas that you can make ahead of time for overnight guests! This list will help you out for the holidays!

It’s holiday season and that means you’re likely going to have overnight guests! Nothing is more stressful than making a full holiday meal and then having to figure out what to make for everyone the next morning.

I’ve come to the rescue with this list of 10 breakfast ideas for overnight guests! Most of these recipes you can make a couple days ahead of time and then warm them up the next morning! Some of them are even made overnight (slow cooker) and you wake up to the most amazing smell! There are plenty of them that you can prep the night before and just pop it in the oven when everyone’s starting to wake up. Hope you enjoy the list :)

Cheesy Hashbrown Casserole

You can prep this the day before, keep it in the fridge, then pop it in the oven the next morning when everyone’s starting to wake up!

This cheesy hashbrown casserole is a simple and delicious side dish addition to your family brunch or large gathering!

Overnight Eggnog French Toast Bake

This is one that you’ll definitely have to think about ahead of time. It sits overnight and you just pop it in the oven the next morning! We made this at our Christmas gathering last year and it was a huge hit!

    Bacon, scones, quiche, chocolate – those will be my mantra. Thanks for sharing this, everything looks so delicious and it’s hard to pick just one. Really.

    Yess! Thanks for the list…we live in a one bedroom apartment, so when we have guests sleepover, they sleep out in the “family room” which is right next to the kitchen. These overnight recipes are SO much easier than me trying to tip toe around in the dark trying to make breakfast ;)

    Bacon maple oatmeal… I’m coming to your place for breakfast!!!

  11. 11/20/2014 at 6:05 pm

    These all look so good! Slow cooker oatmeal has been a staple in my house for a long time. This week I tried it with mashed bananas for a change – it’s sooo good!

    These are some great ideas! I tend to default to a standard English fry up but it’s often not what I want to eat so this is perfect inspiration : )

      Hi Rita! Aw don’t feel stupid. Typically with Pinterest pins, you just click on the image and it’ll take you to the recipe page where you scroll down on the page and the recipe will be there, however, this post of mine is a little different since it’s a round-up post. Just click the title of the recipe next to the number and it’ll take you to the recipe on my blog :) hope that helps!!
