How to Make Sausage Egg Breakfast Casserole

If you like sausage, you’ll love this recipe, but if you prefer bacon you can use that instead or include both – which is what we like to do. Here are the ingredients needed for this casserole:

  • sausage
  • crescent sheet or crescent rolls
  • cheese
  • eggs
  • milk
  • Italian seasoning
  • salt & pepper

Start the casserole by preparing your sausage. While the sausage is browning, unroll the crescent sheet and spread onto the bottom of a greased 9×13 pan. Spread the sausage over the dough and sprinkle the cheese on top.

Whisk together eggs, milk and seasoning in a bowl and pour over the top of your casserole. Bake at 400 degrees for 15-20 minutes. When the eggs are set and the crust is golden, the casserole is ready.

Sausage Breakfast Casserole FAQ

Can you make this sausage casserole ahead of time? Yes, you can! You can make this up to 24 hours before cook time. Just cover and place in fridge until ready to cook.

Which cheese works best for this dish? We like cheddar, but most combos work for this. You can even use a Mexican or Monterrey Jack cheese and add chopped peppers to give it a more Mexican-style taste.

How to store breakfast casserole with crescent rolls? Once cooked, cover and keep in fridge for 4-5 days. Reheat in the microwave.

Can you use pre-cooked sausage for this recipe? Yes, you can. It makes it even more simple and quick. You can also change up the sausage if you like a more mild or spicy version.

Can you use crescent rolls instead of a crescent sheet? Of course. Just be sure to pinch the seams together when placing in the bottom of your pan.

    This looks sooo good and I love the idea of using crescent rolls! Can’t wait to try it out on the HUBS.

    Simply Marvelous I added sauteed onions and bell peppers and another egg. I baked croissant first for 5 minutes before topping. When done I topped with finely chopped cilantro family didn’t leave any I had 1 bite. And it was good!! Thanks I will be making again

    Delicious! I made a couple adjustments. I added sauteed spinach, onion, mushroom and garlic to make it more hearty as a dinner entree. I also used sausage crumbles from the bag since i had That on hand. Will definitely make again! Thank you!

    This thing is amazing! I usually dice up a small onion and sautee it with the sausage. I also use 9 eggs – which I know is a far cry from the 5 listed in the ingredients – It’s just what my husband and I like best. So I double the milk and add extra seasoning. We make it on a Sunday and then heat up pieces for breakfast through the week. THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR CREATING THIS!

    Mine CAME out “juicy” (too Runny) as well. I wrapped it up in aluminum foil and placed it back in oven For 5minutes. That did the trick.

    So delish and amazingly simple. I made this for my daughter, her husband and two growing boys. I didn’t think the recipe called for enough eggs so I increased the quantity to eight instead of five. It turned out perfectly. And, ITALian seasoning for breakfast? No. I omitted it. I Plan to make it again this weekend for overnight guests. Thank you for publishing this!!

    Such a great, simple recipe! I Used eight eggs instead of five, and cooked for 20 minutes. Even my picky child loves it, and he does like anything! Perfect for families on a budget.
