1(BEST assembled the night before cooking)
Brown sausage and drain any grease (feel free to mix hot sausage in this). Add softened cream cheese, red pepper, and dried onions to the sausage mixture. Set aside.
2In 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.
3Grease 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.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Uncover casserole and place it on the center of the bottom rack. Cook it for about an hour and ten minutes. Let it stand ten minutes before serving. Enjoy!
