A step by step process describing how to make breakfast casserole with crescent rolls.  Brown the sausage, line the pan with crescent rolls, add the sausage, cheese and egg and bake!

My 8 year old had a few friends sleep over for his birthday this fall and I decided to make this recipe for the boys in the morning. I was a little nervous because you never know what other kids like, and I wanted them to have a good breakfast to start their day.

I whipped this up while they were having an epic Nerf gun battle in the basement and when they were ready for breakfast I served this breakfast casserole with crescent rolls and a side of fruit.

One of the boys here has been a good friend for years and I knew he was a picky eater. He ate it all and his Mom texted me after he went home and said that I’d made a delicious breakfast! Mom win!

Can I prepare this breakfast casserole ahead of time?

Because of the crescent rolls I think it is best to prepare this casserole right before cooking it. If you want to save some time you can easily brown the sausage the day before and store it in the refrigerator in an airtight container and your casserole can be prepared in just minutes.

What kind of dish should I prepare a breakfast casserole in?

I usually make my breakfast casseroles in a ceramic baking dish. It doesn’t seem to burn as easily.

What nicer thing can you do for somebody than make them breakfast?

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees and spray your pan with cooking spray.

-If you are unable to find the Pillsbury Crescent Roll sheet you can use regular crescent rolls, just press the dough together where the perforations are.
-I use a mild breakfast sausage but you can use any sausage you prefer.

    Delicious and so easy to make! I used Pillsbury Hawaiian Rolls. The crescents unrolled easily right in the pan. I layered the sausage, poured milk, eggs and ground pepper on top, then covered it with all of the cheese. I covered the pan with foil and baked for 40 minutes. It turned out so gooey, cheesy and yummy!
