I love breakfast casseroles. The trouble is, most of them have a ton of cheese in them. Don't get me wrong. I love cheese. LOVE. But my String Beane is very allergic to milk so, no cheese here.
I also love sausage. It is by far my favorite breakfast meat. I really like it when a little bit of syrup gets on it. Sort of like the McGriddle concept.
I ran across this recipe on Pinterest and thought I could adapt it to fit both my loves. Breakfast casserole and sausage.
This is basically a French Toast Casserole with some sausage in it. Yum. It turned out so good! My little beanes liked it too. Butter beane liked it the best and he is a decidedly picky eater. I decided that it would be a great thing to have on Christmas morning.
Here is the recipe:
1 loaf of French Bread, cubed
6 eggs, slightly beaten
1 cup of Almond Milk
1/2 cup maple syrup
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1 pound of sausage, browned and drained
Place the bread cubes in a 9x13 dish. Sprinkle the sausage over the top of the bread crumbs. Mix the eggs, almond milk, syrup and cinnamon together in a bowl and pour over the bread/sausage mixture.
Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight.
Bake 45 minutes to 1 hour at 350 degrees.
This will be a yummy and easy Christmas breakfast for us. What do you do to make Christmas morning easy?
