Recipe: Apple, Sausage, and Smoked Cheddar Breakfast Casserole — Holiday Brunch Bakes

This rustic casserole is inspired by an omelet that was my go-to brunch for years at the small cafe in my old New York City neighborhood. It's filled with thick chunks of breakfast sausage, sweet apples, and smoky cheddar, making it appropriate for holiday get-togethers and those evenings when you want a cozy breakfast for dinner.

Turkey gets the talk at Thanksgiving, but many of us are all about the dressing (or stuffing, as some call it, regardless of whether it's stuffed inside a bird). Few foods peg regional preferences and hometown traditions more accurately than the style of dressing preferred by a family.
