The second recipe she picked out was a bit more savory. We found it on the Jimmy Dean website.
2 large Golden Delicious apples, peeled, chopped
2 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
3 cups milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
8 cups French bread cubes (¾-inch pieces)
1 pkg. Jimmy Dean® Maple Flavor Pork Sausage Roll, cooked, crumbled, drained
2 cups (8 ounces) shredded cheddar cheese, divided
Preheat oven to 325°F. Toss apples with sugar and cinnamon; set aside.
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.
Spoon into lightly greased 13x9-inch baking dish; top with remaining ½ cup cheese.
Bake 40-45 minutes or until knife inserted in center comes out clean. Let stand 10 minutes before cutting into 12 squares to serve.
Cook’s Tips: Make-Ahead Maple Breakfast Casserole: Assemble casserole as directed. Refrigerate overnight. When ready to serve, uncover and bake 50-55 minutes or until knife inserted in center comes out clean.
Serving Suggestion: Serve with warm maple syrup.
Well this recipe also was a disappointment. The apple just really threw off the flavor and the texture was just mush. Would I make this one again? No....
I will go back to our family favorites that have more flavors and texture.
