This delicious sausage apple breakfast casserole recipe is a tasty one-dish breakfast you can make ahead of time and just pop in the oven when you need it!
I like this breakfast casserole recipe because the fruit is included in it so you have a whole meal without adding a thing. I also like the fact it has the sugar and cinnamon to add a touch of sweetness to the dish.
