This is not my recipe but one from Jimmy Dean and it is too good not to share.

Best breakfast casserole by far. I have been asked to make this for many potlucks and many dinners served at my home. It's not just for breakfast anymore. If you love sweet and savory, you'll love this recipe.

    ********about the 1 or 2 packages of sausage. the recipe calls for 1 but i use 2 because i like a lot of meat in the casserole. some breakfast casseroles tend to be custard like because of the bread and using more meat helps with that.********

How to Make Maple Sausage Apple Breakfast Casserole

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 325°F. Toss apples with sugar and cinnamon; set aside.
  2. Beat eggs, milk and vanilla in large bowl with wire whisk until well blended. Add bread cubes, sausage, apple mixture and 1-½ cups cheese; stir gently until evenly coated.
  3. Spoon into lightly greased 13x9-inch baking dish; top with remaining ½ cup cheese.
  4. Bake 40-45 minutes or until knife inserted in center comes out clean. Let stand 10 minutes before cutting into 12 squares to serve. ***Some serve with warm maple syrup, but I think it's over kill on the sweetness scale.***
