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!

Hi! I made my first batch of almond milk and it was delicious! Do you have any recipes for the leftover almond meal? (That holds to the whole30 idea-no pancakes, desserts etc) It seemed wasteful throwing it away.

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!!
