Sausage Breakfast Casserole
This breakfast casserole has become one of our family favorites. It’s a must make for us every Christmas morning. I love it because it’s a snap to make and can be served hot or at room temperature. So it’s perfect for a potluck or a brunch. This sausage and cheese breakfast casserole is by far the easiest casserole dish I have made in a long time. A layer of crescent rolls topped with crumbled browned breakfast sausage, cheddar cheese and eggs. We sprinkle ours with a touch of fresh chives and serve with a dollop of sour cream. Delicious and it makes great leftovers, if you have any leftovers!
How to Make Sausage Breakfast Casserole
- Start by spraying a 9×13 casserole dish with non-stick cooking spray. Then unroll an 8oz tube of original crescent roll dough and lightly press it into the pan. Pinch the seams of the dough together.
- Top with cooked breakfast sausage.
- Add freshly shredded cheese. In this casserole, I used 2 cups of cheese which made it super cheesy and delicious. It’s also great with just a cup of shredded cheese. Note: If you are using a package of pre shredded cheese, only use one cup. The shreds are smaller and tightly packed together and it’s more cheese per measured cup.
- In a medium bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, salt and pepper. Pour egg mixture over casserole and bake 400 degrees for about 15 minutes, or until egg mixture is set.
- Then you have this gloriously cheesy breakfast casserole.
- A sprinkle of fresh chives is the perfect finish.
