I’m not super big on breakfast, but you know what’s ALWAYS a hit at our house??? Breakfast for dinner! King’s Hawaiian Maple Breakfast Casserole is fit for a holiday breakfast or served as an easy dinner.
This recipe only uses 8 of the yummy King’s Hawaiian rolls, so that means we have 4 left to use to make little slider sandwiches for lunch.
I think my kids were just as excited about that as they were this casserole 😉
How to Make King’s Hawaiian Maple Breakfast Casserole
First I started the sausage in a skillet over medium heat. This is the maple sausage to add a little something special.
While the sausage cooks, break it apart and cut 8 of the King’s Hawaiian Rolls into bite size cubes.
Using a serrated knife works best for cutting the rolls.
And aim for about inch size cubes.
Put the bread cubes in a greased or buttered 9×13 casserole dish.
Put them in a 375 degree oven for about 10 minutes, tossing a few times throughout.
This will help toast them slightly to create a contrast in texture for the casserole.
While the bread is toasting, whisk together 8 eggs, 1 1/4 cups milk, and 1/2 cup maple syrup.
Just a slight toast on the bread, as you can see.
Add the cooked maple sausage and 1 1/2 cups shredded cheese to the bread cubes.
Toss with a spoon so everything is evenly combined.
Then pour the milk/egg/syrup mixture over top.
And use a spoon or back of a fork to press the bread into the egg mixture for a few minutes.
King’s Hawaiian Maple Breakfast Casserole bakes in a 375 degree oven for 35 to 40 minutes 🙂
Let it cool slightly before cutting and serving.
But VERY highly suggested to serve with both extra syrup over top AND hot sauce.
We used Sriracha along with syrup for a perfect sweet and spicy bite every time.
