Sausage Cream Cheese Casserole

Sausage Cream Cheese Casserole is filled with a savory sausage and cream cheese center. It’s the perfect breakfast recipe!

I love quick and easy crescent roll recipes which include favorites like Cinnamon Twist, Breakfast crescent Ring, and Cinnamon Cream Cheese Crescent rolls. You will definitely want to add this 3 ingredient sausage cream cheese casserole to your go to list!!

Who here loves breakfast dishes?!

We are pretty obsessed, and we especially love the breakfast recipes that are simple and quick. This Sausage Cream Cheese Casserole is one of those! It’s one of the easiest “casseroles” you’ll ever make, with literally 3 ingredients!

You can also use hot sausage, turkey sausage, maple sausage, practically any sausage that you prefer to use. I ended up using the Jimmy Dean Pork Sausage crumbles since I always have them on hand for breakfast dishes. That particular sausage is also already cooked which makes the recipe even more simple and quick.

If you’re looking to try a very delicious, easy and new recipe, I highly recommend making this Sausage Cream Cheese Casserole. It’s great, and I love that it can be changed so easily with different meats and cheeses!!

Just Layer & Bake!

PREP. Preheat oven to 375.

SAUSAGE. Place sausage crumbles and cream cheese in a medium pot and cook on low heat until combined and warm.

CRESCENTS. Unroll crescent roll dough onto a greased pan and pinch seams together.

LAYER. Pour sausage and cream cheese mixture over dough and spread around. Unroll second crescent roll dough and place over the top of the sausage.

BAKE. Pinch seams together and pinch two crescent roll doughs together all around the edges. Bake for 14-16 minutes. Serve warm. ENJOY!

I’m telling you – this is too easy and delicious not to love!!

Tips + Variations

To make it more flavorful, season the sausage or find sausage that is made with maple syrup, apple, or even just Italian sausage depending on your mood. To season it I would suggest salt, pepper, garlic, and a little bit of paprika. Make sure to put the seasoning into the sausage and cream cheese mixture when it’s on the stove so that it all becomes well incorporated. 

Follow the same steps in a 9×13 pan. I would suggest watching it carefully while baking, perhaps using a glass pan, to make sure the crescent roll bottom is fully cooked when all is said and done. 

If the bottom is soggy, your oven may be heating the pan unevenly so I recommend that next time you cover the casserole with foil to prevent the top from browning while letting it bake more.

As a variation, any meat can easily be substituted in place of bacon.

Storing Info

For overnight prep, if you have bought sausage that needs to be cooked you can cook and season the night before and in the morning put everything together. In the recipe I used pre-cooked sausage crumbles so it’s just a quick assembly process. 

STORE leftovers covered in the fridge for 3-4 days. Reheat individual servings in the microwave or larger servings in the oven until warmed through.

      I didn’t have my hopes too high the first time I made this. It just sounded like it would be blah and we would feel it’s missing something, but I had everything on hand so I made a batch. We ate the whole thing!! We all kept going back for more. It’s addictive!! My husband loves everything I cook, but this is the only thing he requests by name over and over. We’ve also found it reheats well the next day on the rare occasion there’s any left! Using crescent sheets makes it even easier. Thanks for sharing this one!!!!

  1. Excellent recipe that yields ample portions for everyone. I had to give the recipe to many others who were there on Christmas Morning.

      I love this recipe. I’ve made it twice. Super easy, quick and TASTY. I half the recipe as were only 3 here but it’s a winner! I do sauté onions and garlic, I add the sausage meat with Italian seasoning and some salt. Cook. When close to done I add diced mushrooms, diced tomatoes & half a package of cream cheese.

      And bake as instructed. I’m so thankful for this recipe and love how versatile it is 🙂

      1. Thanks for sharing what you do. So so glad you enjoy it and yes, it definitely is one that can be customized a bit!

  2. This is a family fav! I am making this for a vacation and want to freeze ahead of time? Advice on best way to freeze?

    1. I’m so glad your family enjoys the recipe. You know, I haven’t frozen this one before and I’m not sure how the texture would be affected by freezing?? I would probably assemble everything and then wrap tightly and freeze. When you are ready to eat, I’d also probably thaw the casserole in the fridge overnight before baking. Then just bake as directed. You’ll have to let us know how it turns out if you do freeze it! Another option is to have all the ingredients ready to go (sausage cooked, etc.) and then do a quick assembly the morning of.

    We love this recipe! I do add a large onion and half of an orange bell pepper cooked and added to the sausage and cream cheese mixture.. Next level flavor. Thank you for the recipe!
