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. Chef Adrianne has attacked brunch with a full head of steam, creating a recipe for a delectably savory Christmas brunch casserole that you can whip up this holiday season. Her 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. This dish should take you and your guests’ taste buds for a ride with a unique blend of salty, spicy, and sweet, making it a must when Christmas rolls along. Pair it with a pomegranate mimosa, and this quick and easy creation will make you feel like the very celebrity chef you got this recipe from.
