This time of year it is easy to find yourself with a house full of hungry relatives. Guests come in from out of town and it can all be a tad overwhelming. Heck, it can even be a bit frightening.

Overnight breakfast recipes are simply THE BEST when you’ve got a lot of mouths to feed, and not enough time or energy in the morning to cook breakfast to order.

You’re in need of a quick and easy solution, and I’m here to give it to you.

It doesn’t get much simpler than this; if you can butter a piece of bread, you can make this recipe. You can put this together before you go to bed, then just pop it in the oven in the morning and let your appliance do all the hard work.

That should give you enough time to pour yourself a cup of coffee, read the paper (aka scroll mindlessly through your Facebook feed), and start your day before the family starts pouring into the kitchen.

I won’t judge you if you decide to fortify that cup of coffee, if you know what I mean.

Alright, I’m only teasing. I seriously love this time of year, mainly BECAUSE I get to spend so much time with my family, not in spite of it.

My siblings and I are all Christmas Vacation junkies and quote the movie regularly throughout the year. It isn’t really Christmastime until I’ve watched the movie after Thanksgiving.

Whether you love or hate having house guests, people still need to eat. This casserole easily serves 8 people and has something for everyone.

The top pieces are sprinkled with walnuts and crisp up in the oven. The bottom pieces are smeared with marmalade and stay soft and gooey.

Paired together, it’s French toast perfection.
