Brie and Sausage Bake


  • 1 pound bulk Johnsonville® Ground Sausage
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 8 cups cubed day-old sourdough bread
  • 1/2 cup chopped roasted sweet red peppers
  • 1/2 pound Brie cheese, rind removed, cubed
  • 2/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh basil or 2 teaspoons dried basil
  • 8 eggs
  • 2 cups heavy whipping cream
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
  • 3 green onions, sliced


  • In a large skillet, cook sausage and onion over medium heat until meat is no longer pink; drain.
  • Place bread cubes in a greased 13-in. x 9-in. baking dish. Layer with sausage mixture, red peppers, Brie and Parmesan cheeses and basil. In a large bowl, whisk the eggs, cream, mustard, pepper and salt; pour over top. Cover and refrigerate overnight.
  • Remove from the refrigerator 30 minutes before baking. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 45-50 minutes or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean.
  • Sprinkle with mozzarella cheese. Bake 4-6 minutes longer or until cheese is melted. Let stand for 10 minutes before cutting. Sprinkle with green onions. Yield: 12 servings.
