With Delicious Make-Ahead Egg Casserole

Plan an Easter gathering everyone can enjoy with a make-ahead menu that includes crowd-pleasing brunch casseroles packed with everyone's favorite flavors - and leaves you plenty of time to spend with the family.

"Combine all-star breakfast ingredients like eggs, bacon and cheese into a single dish in this Cheesy Bacon & Egg Brunch Casserole, seasoned with ground mustard and nutmeg," said Chef Kevan Vetter of the McCormick Kitchens. "The best part about this recipe is you can assemble it the night before - just add an additional 1/2 cup of milk - chill it in the refrigerator and bake it off in the morning."

Serve a spring-inspired dessert topped with an array of fresh fruit to complement your brunch casserole. Find everything you need to create a complete brunch menu and more easy Easter-themed recipes at www.McCormick.com, www.Facebook.com/McCormickSpices and www.Pinterest.com/mccormickspices.
