This Buttery Sausage, Bacon, Egg & Cheese Brunch Casserole Recipe Is What to Make for Christmas Morning

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? 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 casserole that you can whip up for Sunday brunch or anytime. My sausage, egg and cheese casserole is topped with maple syrup, which adds a signature sweetness to the buttery spice that lies underneath. 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.
