We love this Breakfast recipe!

We can’t count how many times we’ve mentioned our love for breakfast recipes!

Today’s Sausage breakfast casserole happens to be a favorite, and for so many reasons:

  • Quick + Easy. Very simple to make and is done start to finish in about 20 minutes, making it great for holidays, weekends, brunch and more.
  • Our favorite ingredients. Filled with sausage, eggs, crescent rolls, and cheese – the entire family LOVES this recipe.
  • Can be made ahead of time. You can make this up to 24 hours in advance. Make the casserole, then before baking, cover and store in the fridge until ready to bake.

Ingredients

  • Sausage – We like to use a mild pork sausage, but bacon can be used too. You can also do a combo of the two meats together, which is what we like best.
  • Crescent Sheet – Crescent rolls laid out with the seams pressed together work as well.
  • Eggs
  • Milk
  • Spices: Italian seasoning, salt, black pepper
  • Cheddar cheese – This can easily be changed up by preference or can be a mix of your favorite shredded cheeses. We suggest not using pre-bagged cheese since it does not melt as well.

How to Make

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees and grease a baking dish. Set aside.
  2. Start the casserole by preparing your sausage in a large skillet.
  3. While the sausage is browning, unroll the crescent sheet and spread onto the bottom of a greased 9×13 casserole dish or pan. Spread the sausage over the dough and sprinkle the cheese on top.
  4. In a large bowl, whisk together eggs, milk and seasoning in a bowl and pour the egg mixture over the top of your casserole.
  5. Bake at 400 degrees for 15-20 minutes. When the eggs are set and the crust is golden, the casserole is ready.

Recipe Tips

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Variations: Change this up with the kind of sausage used or do a mix of sausage and bacon. You can also add some of your favorite veggies like: onions, bell peppers, mushrooms and more.
    • You can even add diced potatoes or shredded hash browns. 😉

Storing

Make Ahead of Time. You can make this up to 24 hours before cook time. Just cover and place in fridge until ready to cook.

Store. Once cooked, cover with plastic wrap and store the dish (or leftovers) in refrigerator for 4-5 days. Reheat in the microwave.

Freeze. I recommend baking the dish before freezing it. Bake, cool, cover, and store for up to 2 months in the freezer. Note that the crescent roll crust will be much softer after being stored in the freezer.

    Happy Holidays! I was just going over some of your tried and true recipes and was reminded of your homemade Spanish rice. I don’t remember if I thanked you for it.
    Several years ago I was in charge of our churches Anny Sunday for all the married couples of 10+ years. I had a Latin theme that year and used your recipe to feed over 50 people. It turned out perfectly and was the perfect side to all the other dishes. You and your recipes never disappoint!
    Thank you for taking that stress out of a very busy and big meal! With you it’s always a win/win!!

    I made this but didn’t have bread. The dog ate 1/2 loaf of bread while I was outside. I had butter and garlic croutons and used those. It was great! Thank you for teaching me such a delicious and easy meal. We love it!
