Make it the day before, and enjoy a warm Jimmy Dean® Fully Cooked Sausage and French toast bake for the holidays!
My kids are at just the right age for celebrating the holidays. I have a 3 -year-old and an 8-year-old, and I can already tell this will be the best holiday season yet. They’re old enough to understand the holiday traditions, and still young enough to believe in the magic of it all. I want to make the most of this holiday season, and enjoy all the festivities together.
That’s why I love meals like this overnight sausage and French toast bake. I’m able to make it the day or night before, and pop in the oven for a fresh, warm brunch dish. When you’re a parent of littles, it makes so much more sense to pick easy recipes that can be quickly prepped whenever you have the time. That way, I’m able to bake home-cooked meals with less stress. Whether that’s the big meal on Christmas Day, or any other meals throughout the week!
This dish may be simple, but it does not compromise on taste! I used Jimmy Dean® Fully Cooked Sausage, which adds bold flavor, with its unique blend of Jimmy Dean® signature seasonings. I love how you can heat it up in seconds and it’s ready to go. It’s a shortcut that I truly appreciate during the holiday season.
We use Tyson® products, like this Jimmy Dean® Fully Cooked Sausage, for all types of cooking occasions. They add delicious flavor to holiday dishes and so much more. And I love how the Jimmy Dean® Fully Cooked Sausage is good-to-go for this breakfast bake. Just chop into pieces and add to the pan. It heats up with the rest of the bake.
In addition to the Jimmy Dean® Fully Cooked Sausage, you’ll need the typical French toast ingredients for this dish.
I love to add pecans and brown sugar to the top. It makes it extra festive, don’t you think?
Add sourdough bread, eggs, and milk to a casserole dish. Tuck in pieces of Jimmy Dean® Fully Cooked Sausage. At this point, you can pop it into the refrigerator overnight.
The next day, top with crumb topping and bake at 350 for 45 minutes or until golden brown on the top.
Allow to cool, dig in, and enjoy!
