Servings 8


  • 1 1/2 cups Egg Beaters equivalent to 6 eggs
  • 2 cups half and half
  • 1 french bread loaf
  • 1 lb chicken sausage, casings removed
  • 2 apples peeled, cored and diced I used Gala but Granny Smith would be delicious too
  • 1 lb sharp white cheddar, grated
  • 1 small sweet onion, chopped
  • 1/4 cup chopped sage
  • 1/4 cup chopped parsley
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 2 tbsp butter, divided


  • Grease a large baking dish with 1 tbsp butter.
  • In a large sauté pan over medium-high heat, cook sausage, stirring with a wooden spoon to break the meat into small clumps, until browned, about 10 minutes. Transfer the sausage to a large mixing bowl, leaving the fat in the pan.
  • Turn the heat down to medium and add the onions to the pan along with 1 tablespoon of butter. Cook the onions, stirring constantly, until soft and lightly caramelized, about 6 minutes.
  • Add the onions to the mixing bowl with the sausage, along with the bread cubes, grated cheese, apples, parsley and sage.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together the Egg Beaters, half-and-half, salt and pepper.
  • Pour the Egg Beaters mixture evenly over the bread mixture. Cover tightly and refrigerate for at least a few hours or preferably overnight.
  • Preheat the oven to 350°F. Bake for approximately one hour, uncovered, until puffed and golden brown. Serve immediately.
