Make Ahead Breakfast Casserole Cups

Back-to-school season is one of the busiest times of year in my home. These Make Ahead Breakfast Casserole Cups are the perfect grab-and-go meal for busy school mornings.

I can make these Make Ahead Breakfast Casserole Cups on the weekend and freeze them so the kids can reheat them for breakfast during the week.
