Chef Adrianne’s Recipe for the Perfect Casserole

Brunch can satisfy many food cravings and is one of the most versatile meals of the day. Celebrity hef Adrianne has created a recipe for a delectably savory casserole that you can whip up this season.

Her sausage, egg and cheese casserole is topped with maple syrup, which adds a signature sweetness to the buttery spice that lies underneath. The casserole itself contains cheese, sausage, egg, onions, peppers, and, of course, bacon.
