This breakfast bake highlights the tangy and toothsome taste of sourdough bread. Baguettes have a high proportion of crust which soaks up lots of moisture without becoming soggy. The tangy earthiness of gruyere amps up the flavor of the bread; for a more mellow flavor go with fontina. An ample amount of breakfast sausage and a touch of maple syrup play up the breakfast vibes.
