Chef's Buttery Sausage, Bacon & Cheese Breakfast Casserole Recipe Is What to Make for Holiday Brunch

There is something deliciously intriguing about brunch. It screams refinement, and offers myriad options for those who decide to venture down this rabbit hole of deliciousness. 

Love breakfast food? Join the club! Brunch can satisfy those cravings. More of a lunch person? Brunch offers that, too, as it is undoubtedly one of the most versatile meals of the day.

Here's my easy recipe for a delectably savory breakfast casserole that you can whip up for Sunday brunch, a holiday meal or anytime. My sausage, egg and cheese casserole recipe is topped with maple syrup, which adds a signature sweetness to the buttery spice that lies underneath. It's so hearty, you could even serve this tasty casserole for dinner (because who doesn't love breakfast for dinner?).

The casserole itself contains cheese, sausage, egg, onions, peppers and, of course, bacon. Pair it with a pomegranate mimosa to finish off this fabulous meal. Everyone will be asking for seconds!
