If you're having house guests this holiday then this recipe is for you. It comes from my Aunt Jo and was a tradition for her to make on holiday mornings like Thanksgiving or Christmas. It's so perfect for guests because you can make it ahead of time, since it has to refrigerate overnight. Really all you’re doing the morning-of is popping it in the oven -- perfect for the hustle + bustle of the holiday

My Aunt Jo would always use Bradleys Country Sausage from my hometown of Tallahassee, FL but since I’m not much of a meat eater I alter it to turkey sausage or just leave it out completely. I also like to use a super hearty, crusty bread that’s been left out a day. I just love the way the brie and sage compliment each other here. This recipe is packed full full of flavor and such an easy and filling breakfast!
