    In another bowl, combine 3 cups milk, vanilla, apple pie spice, salt and pepper and whisk together. Add rolls (tear them as you add) to the milk mixture one by one. Stir the mixture and let it sit for a few minutes. Then repeat this step until most of the moisture is absorbed.

    Grease a 13x9 pan with butter or butter flavored spray. Layer half of the bread mixture on the bottom of the pan. Then spread the sausage mixture on top of the bread mixture. Drizzle some of the syrup over the sausage mixture, and then spread the remaining half of the bread mixture on top of that. Drizzle the remaining syrup on top of the bread mixture. Cover and refrigerate overnight.
