Maple Apple Sausage Breakfast Casserole

Maple Sausage Apple Breakfast Casserole

You know what a sucker I am for a good breakfast casserole recipe.  I love them because you can make them the day before and just keep them in the fridge (perfect for lazy weekends when you just want to pop it in the oven), they can always be served as dinner along with a big green salad, and they’re so darn hearty.

For this one, I used some of my favorite fall flavors: maple and apple.  A little maple syrup, a little applesauce and some breakfast sausage…delish!

This recipe serves six to eight.

Shopping List
1 loaf of brioche torn into pieces (or use Challah or about 6 croissants)
1 pound of breakfast sausage, browned and crumbly (I used Owen’s)
6 eggs, lightly scrambled
2 cups of milk
1½ cups of applesauce
1/2 cup good quality maple syrup

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.

Grease (I used Pam) a 9×13 casserole dish.

Take your torn brioche and place it down in your casserole dish.  Next, place your browned sausage down over the bread.  Set aside.

In a bowl, whisk together your eggs, milk, applesauce and maple syrup.  Pour this egg mixture down over your bread and sausage.

At this point, you could cover and refrigerate overnight or you could immediately pop it in the oven.

This casserole bakes uncovered about 55 to 60 minutes.

Remove from oven and allow to sit about five minutes before cutting into squares and serving.

A little sweet and savory together.  A yummy breakfast option!
