Sausage Apple Egg Casserole

Sausage and Apple Egg Casserole | 5DollarDinners.com

It’s hard to photograph egg casseroles.  Every time I’ve tried, it just doesn’t look as good as it tastes.  I suppose it’s the bland colors.

Anyways…L-O-V-E-D the sausage and apple flavors in this casserole!

    This looks tasty. At first I didn’t think so, but the pictures reminded me of my Thanksgiving stuffing that has sausage and apples in it. I love the overnight thing. It makes mornings so much easier. I’ll have to try it soon!

    Some foods are so hard to make look appetizing even though they totally are! Maybe next time instead of trying to photograph a chunk of the casserole on the plate you could photograph it in it’s casserole dish. You could insert color by placing the casserole dish on a colored place mat or table cloth. Or you could add color by adding the ingredients in their raw form to the picture…maybe like a few whole red apples in the background or slices of red apple in the pic might help :)

    At first, I wondered about the meat/fruit combination, but quite frankly, the spoon sold me! :) I LOVE that spoon! I think that I will try this out next week for my biweekly mom’s brunch.

    I’m a *very* broke college student, I just made it for my roommates & they loved it!! Totally a great idea. You’re page has saved my pocket!

    Going to have to try this with for my hungry group of teenage boys. I too love the smiley face spoon. Going to have to find me some of those spoons.

    Looks great! I don’t know how to print just the recipe and not the pictures and other stuff. Please let me know. Thanks.!

    Great blog!
    You’ve got this filed under dairy/casein free but it has milk. I was wondering what you use as a milk substitute? I have my own (soy milk & Coffee Rich are my primary subs), but I’m curious as to what you would recommend.
    Thanks!

    I made this as part of the OAMM September Menu and my son saw the label in the freezer and is so excited! Apparently, someone made this for a breakfast at school last year or something similar! I left out the onions, though…my family is totally adverse to onions!

    Okay, so I’ve tried this recipe. However, I changed it up a bit and it was very tasty. I tossed the bread with melted butter, and I sauteed the sausage and apple before mixing together with other ingredients. It was very good that way. I also left out the onions so we could get the full flavor of the sausage and apple. And as for the picture, you could cut a nice neat wedge instead of scooping it out and set it nicely on a lace doiley lined pretty plate with fresh strawberries & raspberries. Good luck next time around.
