Prepare Ahead Baked Egg Breakfast

This is a great breakfast to prepare on Christmas Eve, leaving you only to add the eggs and pop the pan into the oven to bake while you open gifts on Christmas morning.

This is a Mills Family traditional Christmas Day breakfast passed down from my mother-in-law. We serve with a fruit salad and toast to have a healthy Christmas morning breakfast.
