8 Make-ahead Meals
for the Days before the Holidays

When you’re counting down toward the big meal – with all the guests, the decorations, the details –it’s easy to neglect the days leading up to the main event. And if you’re a well-prepared host, you’ll be spending the night before the big meal prepping. When your head is in the game and you’re up to your elbows in stuffing prep, it’s all too easy to forget about the meals before the main meal.

So this year, consider the ahead-of-time ahead of time with these easy, delicious make-ahead meals.

  1. BREAKFAST BREAD
    Full of mushroomy, mustardy, sagey, sausagey flavor, our Breakfast Bread can be prepped in 20 minutes and refrigerated overnight. Then just pop it in the oven first thing in the morning, and let your out-of-town guests wake up to a savory scent that’ll start the day off right.

  2. COUNTRY SAUSAGE STRATA
    A handful of rustic peppers and onions. A hint of spice. A generous portion of ground sausage (because…well, sausage). Just like that, tomorrow’s dinner is good to go.

  3. FRENCH TOAST CASSEROLE WITH MAPLE BROWN SUGAR BACON
    Three words. Bacon French Toast. Yes, it’s as delicious as it sounds. And it’s baked, which means you won’t need to flip, flip, flip those toasts all morning. Easy and amazing in one.

  4. SAUSAGE AND SPINACH QUICHE
    Reheat. Eat. Yes, it’s pretty much that easy. And since it only takes ten minutes of prep time, this one can be made the day ahead or the day you eat it, and it’s simple either way.

  5. RUSTIC ITALIAN STRATA
    Baby spinach, roasted red peppers, fresh mozzarella, and the sweet, sweet taste of Sweet Italian Ground sausage. All tossed with rustic French bread. Prep in 20 minutes. Soak in the refrigerator overnight. Then pop it in the oven and just like that, dinner is done.

  6. SAUSAGE AND SPINACH CASSEROLE
    Start with some juicy-on-the-inside, crispy-on-the-outside ground sausage. Toss it with spinach, cream cheese, and rough-cut croissants. Toss it in a baking dish and refrigerate it overnight. Then you’ve got a 20-minutes-until-perfectly-toasty meal that the whole family will love.

  7. MINI PORK MEATLOAF MUFFINS
    Ten minutes today. Fifteen minutes tomorrow. That’s all the time it takes to get these juicy, savory mini meatloaf muffins on the dinner table.

  8. SLOW COOKED TUSCAN PORK AND PASTA
    What would a make-ahead recipe list be without at least one slow-cooked dish? So we chose a wintertime showstopper: Slow Cooked Tuscan Pork. Even the name is worth savoring. But your prep won’t take more than ten minutes, and by dinnertime you’ll have an oh-so-delicious dish ready as quickly as you can boil a pot of pasta.
