Cheesy Sausage and Croissant Casserole

Overnight Cheesy Sausage and Croissant Casserole - buttery croissants, sausage, eggs, heavy cream and gruyere cheese - make and refrigerate overnight. SO delicious!! Great casserole recipe for Christmas morning!

I can't get enough of this delicious Cheesy Sausage and Croissant Casserole. It has all of our favorite things in it - buttery croissants, sausage and cheese. Lots of amazing Gruyere cheese! The Gruyere tasted amazing and melted beautifully on top of the casserole. If you don't want the expense of Gruyere cheese, you can definitely substitute swiss. Heck, use whatever cheese if your favorite! Gouda, cheddar, Monterey jack. They will all taste great! The best part about this casserole is that it can be made ahead of time and refrigerated overnight. Perfect for Christmas morning!!

*The casserole uses a package of mini croissants. I found them in the bakery section at my grocery store. Ask for them if you can't find them. I've also seen croissants at Costco. You could always freeze any extra croissants for later.*

  2. Do you bake straight from the fridge or let it reach room temp before baking?

    1. I baked it straight from the fridge. I let it sit out while the oven preheated. Check it at 45 minutes. It might need 5 minutes more baking time - depending on your oven.

    1. I'm not sure - the chopped croissants filled up the 9x13-inch pan.
