Sausage, Egg, and Cheese Crescent Roll Breakfast Casserole
When our son was born almost three years ago, people showered us with homemade meals and I was in CF heaven. One of those meals delivered from a friend was a breakfast casserole that rocked my postpartum world. I didn’t have much of an appetite after becoming a mom, but obviously I needed all the help to eat to keep my weight and energy up. This sausage, egg, and cheese crescent roll breakfast casserole was a game-changer for me.
Why I love this casserole recipe!
This breakfast casserole is a quick, easy, and hearty calorie-packed meal that is a sure crowd-pleaser. It’s the chosen meal for holiday mornings for our family and the meal I traditionally deliver to other new mothers. It is also perfect to make at the beginning of the week and serve as breakfast during busy mornings as it reheats amazingly. In my opinion, it gets better each day. I love it, our toddler son loves it, and I hope you’ll love it too!

Bake time: 30-40 minutes
Ingredients for the sausage, egg, and cheese casserole
- 1lb ground pork sausage
- 1 tube refrigerated crescent rolls
- 8 large eggs
- 2 cup of whole milk (or milk of your choosing)
- 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
- 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
- ½ teaspoon of salt
- ¼ teaspoon of pepper
Directions for the sausage, egg, and cheese casserole
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In a large skillet, brown sausage until no longer pink, crumble as cooking; drain fat. In a greased 9x13 baking dish, unroll the crescent rolls completely covering the bottom. Sealed the perforations and edges with your finger and sprinkle with the sausage and different cheeses.
- In a large bowl whisk the eggs, milk, salt, and pepper. Pour over the sausage and cheese.
- Bake, uncovered, for 30-40 minutes until the crescent rolls are puffed up a bit and the top is golden. A knife inserted in the center should come out clean. Let stand for 5-10 minutes before enjoying.
Kitchen tip: To make a vegetarian version, substitute your favorite meat replacement or sauteed vegetables such as onions, mushrooms, or spinach.
