Maple Sausage and Waffle Casserole
We love the concept of a breakfast casserole and developed a lighter, more "health-smart" version.
Why This Recipe Works
When developing our Maple Sausage and Waffle Casserole recipe, we wanted a lighter, more “health-smart" version of typically heavy, dense breakfast casseroles. The airy, fluffy texture of frozen waffles kept our casserole’s texture reasonably light, and the sweet flavor paired perfectly with maple-flavored sausage. Whole milk gave the casserole a cleaner, lighter flavor, while maple syrup augmented the flavor of the maple sausage. Finally, we weighted our breakfast casserole with either cans or a heavy pan, to ensure the waffles absorbed the custard.
