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.

  1. We love this recipe!! When making ahead of time, do you still pour the egg mixture on top? Even if it’s not going to be cooked til the next day?

    1. Yes, you can! You can make the recipe up to 24 hours beforehand and you can pour the egg mixture on already. You can also wait until right before baking too. Either way!

  2. I typically use a different recipe but was intrigued by yours with the use of the cresent sheet, so I combined them. I just realized that in your recipe it calls for 5 eggs, my normal one, 8 eggs. Should I remove some of the egg mixture? Wondering if it’ll still cook up nicely with the crescent sheet with that much egg.

    1. I haven’t ever tried the recipe with 8 eggs. You maybe would need to play with the baking time? You’ll have to let us know what you did and how it turned out. 🙂

    Do you know what I can substitute for the crescent roll dough? I have looked in many stores and there seems to be a supply issue with Pillsbury

    1. Oh darn! You could try using a pie crust or even using refrigerated biscuits. Both would give you a little different flavor and texture, but may still work? If you use biscuits, I’d say flatten them out either with your hands or a rolling pin so they aren’t so thick. Best of luck in the hunt for crescent rolls!

    I haven’t made this yet, but I wondered if you or anyone on here has ever tried adding some gravy to this casserole and if so, did it come out ok? I used to get these little frozen individual breakfast pizza’s that had gravy, sausage, cheese, and egg that were so good, but I can’t ever find them anymore, so I’ve been on the hunt for a recipe that might be similar.. the gravy really made the whole dish so good.. any ideas would be great! Thanks in advance! 🙂

    1. Those do sound tasty!! I haven’t made this particular breakfast casserole with a gravy before. But if you do add one, you will have to let us know how it turns out! We have a Biscuits and Gravy Breakfast Casserole that might interest you too… a little different than this one, but might be worth looking into for the gravy aspect of it. 😉 https://lilluna.com/biscuits-and-gravy-casserole/

    We found this recipe a few years ago. Always a favorite with family and friends and so easy!
    Quick, easy and delicious.

    I just got through making this breakfast casserole, and will definitely add this to my favorites! Not only was it easy, but has lots of flavor!
    I added peppers and onions to the sausage when I cooked it. I also used half of low fat cheddar cheese and half of regular cheddar. I also used half and half milk instead of regular skim milk.
    I will definitely make this again. Thanks for sharing this recipe!

  7. 5 stars
    This was SO easy and delicious! We have a standard breakfast casserole we have made for years which includes toast broken up into small pieces but this one is so much less time consuming and according to my hubby, even better! Because of the size of our family, I included 8 eggs and it was done in 22 minutes.
