How to Make Sausage & Cream Cheese Crescent Breakfast Casserole

This Sausage & Cream Cheese Crescent Breakfast Casserole is a two-part process. First, you have to make the crescents. I like to use a pizza cutter to cut the crescent rolls in half. I also like to use a small cookie scoop to scoop the sausage and cream cheese mixture on top of the crescent rolls. SO easy! Once the crescent rolls are in the pan, top them with some cheese and the egg mixture.

Can this Sausage & Cream Cheese Crescent Breakfast Casserole Be Made the Night Before?

Absolutely! I love make-ahead breakfast casseroles. Nobody wants to get up extra early to make breakfast! Just assemble the casserole and cover and refrigerate until the next morning. Take the casserole out of the refrigerator and let it come to room temperature before baking. I usually let it sit out for about 30 minutes. If you are short on time, you can pop it in the oven cold and just add a few minutes to the cooking time.

If you don't want to assemble the whole casserole ahead of time, you can just make the sausage and cream cheese mixture. Pop it in the refrigerator and it will be ready to go when you are ready to make the casserole. I do this quite often as the sausage and cream cheese mixture holds up better if it has chilled.

Can I Freeze this Sausage & Cream Cheese Crescent Breakfast Casserole?

Sure! You can freeze it baked or unbaked. If freezing the baked or leftover casserole, let it thaw and either reheat covered in the oven or uncovered in the microwave. If freezing the casserole unbaked, thaw the casserole completely before baking as directed below.

  6. Looks amazing! Are you using the XL Crescent rolls or the regular sized? Would you be able to make this up the morning before and top with egg mixture the next morning, ex. assemble crescents on Friday a.m., bake Saturday a.m.?

    1. I used a can of regular crescent rolls. I think it would be fine to assemble the crescents on Friday and bake on Saturday.

    1. I used two cans of crescent rolls. Each roll is cut in half. See step 3. You can also watch the video above the recipe to get clarification.
