Five Brunch Favorites for a Crowd

It was another brunch-filled weekend at our house.  On Saturday, we went out to try a new place and on Sunday, we hosted friends for Mario Kart brunch.  Somehow it's still only in the 50s, so after planning a lawn games brunch, it quickly changed to video games.  We made 3 new casseroles (thanks, Pinterest!!), so I decided to share my review of those with y'all as well as some of our other favorite brunch dishes for a crowd.

1. Monte Cristo Sliders - These were a hit yesterday!  And seriously, they were so easy to make.  Since a whole pack of Kings Hawaiian rolls in half, stuff with meat and cheese, and throw them in the oven.  The best part is the sprinkled powdered sugar over the top!

2. Ham and Cheddar Quiche - This was one of our first ever brunch favorites.  I love quiches because they can be served at room temperature, and everyone still enjoys them. 
3. Tater Tot Sausage Casserole - Another new one from yesterday; this is the perfect hangover food!  It's delicious and filling, and I'm not going to lie, I might have messed up the ingredients.  I only bought one pound of sausage, but I thought it still came out really well. 
4. Ham and Swiss Rolls - We make these every year on Christmas morning with Mike's family.  You can either make them ahead of time and bake them off early, or set up a station where people can make and fill their own. 
5. Huevos Rancheros Breakfast Casserole - So... we might have skipped the first step of crisping our own tortillas (and used store-bought chips), but this was really good.  My one suggestion is to take the casserole out of the oven when the egg white are still a little runny.  They will continue to cook even out of the oven, and this will make sure the yolks aren't overcooked. 
And (because it's Mike's absolute favorite) one more: sausage gravy and biscuits.  This isn't typically the best for a crowd (why I didn't include it in this list), but we have found that you can make a whole batch in the morning, and it stays fresh and warm pretty well in a slowcooker.

Delicious! Quiche is always an easy dish to whip together but your sausage biscuits and gravy look amazing. I've never made them at home. Emily @ Martinis & Bikinis
