Apple Sausage Breakfast Bake

Our friends and family just love to come to the cottage to enjoy the beautiful country side and the lake. When we have house guest I like to have a really nice breakfast casserole or serve a nice simple brunch that allows me to spend time with my guest. Apple Sausage Breakfast Bake is a wonderful combination of sage flavored sausage and the tartest of a granny smith apple, that is paired with a custard soaked french bread, it is delicious. This is a new breakfast bake that I will be serving my guest this holiday season and I think they are gong to really enjoy it and hope you will too.


Apple Sausage Breakfast Bake
Miz Helen's Kitchen
Ingredients
1 pound sage sausage
1 loaf day old french bread
3 Granny Smith Apples, peeled, cored, chopped
6 eggs, beaten
1 1/2 cups half and half or whole milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cups packed brown sugar
1 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon all spice
2 cups sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
Directions
In a hot skillet brown the sausage then add the apples and cook until the apples are just tender.
Cut the french bread into small bite size pieces.
In a large mixing bowl beat the eggs and milk, then add the vanilla and mix well.
Add the brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg and all spice, mix well.
Add the cooked sausage and apples to the mixture and mix well.
Add the cubed bread and push the bread down in the mixture so that it soaks up the liquid.
Spay a 9X13 baking dish with oil and pour the mixture into the baking dish, cover the dish and refrigerate the dish overnight.
Remove the cover from the breakfast bake and bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes, remove the bake from the oven and cover with the cheddar cheese. Place the dish back in the oven and continue to cook for 15 more minutes until the cheese is melted and the breakfast bake is set in the center.
Option:
Can add 1 cup dried cranberries and 1 cup chopped walnuts
Serve with warm syrup.
Enjoy!
