Sausage Apple Overnight Breakfast Casserole

Here is another yummy breakfast casserole recipe.  This recipe brings together all kinds of flavors.  It is sweet, savory, and tart.  My mom got this recipe from a cooking class she attended and I made my own adaptation.  We love it drizzled with maple syrup for even more sweetness.

  • I was wondering if I could make this ahead of time and freeze it? We have a few family trips planned this Christmas and I would love to take this to bake once I get there.

  • Made this for a bridal shower. I added 3/4 tsp. of salt to the egg mixture, based on one of the comments listed previously. It was truly delicious and a big hit with the guests. It’s great without the syrup, but extra special with just a bit of that extra sweetness.. This smells wonderful while baking and wonderful when being served. This has now become my favorite breakfast casserole!

  • wondering if you MUST refridgerate overnight for this to be successful. I want to make it for DINNER!

  • I love making delicious, comforting breakfasts in the morning! I’d love to make this! You should consider submitting this to Recipe4Living’s Breakfast Casserole Recipe Contest! You could win a whole bunch of things from Melitta Coffee!

  • This was really great! I found it was lacking salt, however. Next time I will put salt in the sausage while I cook it and maybe a bit in the milk mixture. The “optional” maple syrup makes this dish down right comforting!

  • Just made this and can’t wait to try it in the morning! Merry Christmas 😉

  • Thinking about trying this one for Christmas morning. I like the combination of sweet and savory.

  • I love the breakfast casseroles and have been able to adapt them for just the two of us. This one looks really good.
