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.

    Holy Honey Hush!!! This recipe should be regulated by the FDA as a controlled substance because you CANNOT stop eating it!!! Just made it and I swear I alone could eat the whole dish!!! This JUST became a Christmas Eve Morning tradition!!!!

    This has been our go-to family breakfast during quarantine. I’ve made it at least once a week since finding it in April! Simple and delicious!

    I LOVE this casserole recipe! I used 11 eggs in order to serve more people. I accidentally left out the italian seasoning. It was the best casserole I have ever tasted! Thanks, I will recommend to everyone!

    1. Yes – I think it would work. Just make sure the biscuit dough isn’t too thick. You can stretch it out to be a little thinner like the crescent roll dough if you need to.

    Easy and super ultra mega delicious. And I logged it in my fitness pal. If it’s cut into 12 squares, each serving has 260 calories, 12 g protein, 25% calcium, and 42% vitamin A. (Of course I ate 3 servings cuz it’s so good). Great way to start the day

    1. You totally could! I haven’t tried it with Turkey sausage so I’m not sure how it would taste, but you could definitely make that swap!

  5. Can’t use dough as I need it to be gluten free leave out the croutons and Cresent rolls just eggs sausage and cheese and bacon
