Breakfast bake

Here’s a baked breakfast dish I (sort of) made up myself! It started with a King Arthur recipe for baked french toast with apples, and a comment that adding sausage might be good too.

From there I made the logical assumption it needed cheese too. Obviously.

Breakfast Bake

French Toast Ingredients

  • 1 day old baguette
  • 8 eggs
  • 2C milk
  • 1/3C sugar
  • 1Tbsp vanilla
  • 1/4tsp nutmeg
  • 1/4tsp salt

Topping ingredients

  • 5 apples
  • 1Tbsp lemon juice
  • 1/4C sugar
  • 1tsp cinnamon
  • 1lb ground breakfast sausage
  • 1-2C shredded cheddar cheese

Directions

Cook and drain the sausage.

Slice the bread and lay it in the bottom of a 9×12 baking dish. Mix all the other french toast ingredients and pour over the bread. Let it soak in while you prep everything else.

Preheat the oven to 375F. Peel and slice the apples. Toss with the lemon juice, sugar, cinnamon, and a pinch of salt.

Spread the cooked sausage over the bread. Layer the apples evenly over the sausage.

Cook for 35 minutes, remove briefly to sprinkle cheese over everything and return to oven. Cook for an additional 20 minutes.

Eat while piping hot!

  1. Looks delicious – and it was! But I missed the bit about “slicing” the baguette and it was tricky to serve and eat. So, did you slice it in rounds, or horizontally?

    • Well the one I bought was pre-sliced so it was just in rounds. I suspect you could slice it either way and it would be easier to scoop. I’m trying to picture this made with a whole baguette – was it like serving a roast?

  2. I sliced them in half the long way and laid them side by side in the baking dish. So it was rather like serving a lasagna with super-thick noodles at the bottom.
