You go BIG and make a big batch breakfast to feed a crowd. Here are a few of our favorite breakfasts ideas that will feed a large, hungry group this holiday!

Big Batch Breakfast Strata

Your family and friends will love the Tex-Mex flavors in this recipe (courtesy of Southern Living Magazine). Eggs combined with milk, tortilla, peppers, onion, jack cheese and chiles make a delicious and flavorful breakfast casserole. We also love this recipe because it works best if you prepare it the night before. That means on the morning of your large holiday brunch, you just pop it in the oven with no prep or clean-up! That’s a win in our book.
