Cresent Roll Breakfast Casserole

This Breakfast Bake is a new favorite at our house. Crescent rolls topped with sausage, cheese, eggs, and baked. YUM! Even though this is called a breakfast casserole it is also great for lunch, brunch, a baby shower, or even tailgating this Fall. We’ve made it several times over the past few months and just can’t get enough of it. It might just be our favorite breakfast casserole!

How to Make Sausage Breakfast Bake

This breakfast casserole is super simple to make and only has a few ingredients. Start with browning some breakfast sausage. Next, press a can of crescent rolls into the bottom of a baking dish. Top the crescent rolls with the cooked sausage and cheese. Whisk together eggs and milk. Pour over sausage and bake.

  • I used Jimmy Dean breakfast sausage. You can use regular or hot sausage.
  • Can substitute turkey sausage for pork sausage.
  • Can breakfast casserole be made ahead of time? Yes! You can assemble the casserole in advance and refrigerate it overnight.
  • Can breakfast bake be frozen? Yes! I usually freeze this casserole after baking and reheat when ready to serve.
  • I used a combination of cheddar cheese and mozzarella cheese. Feel free to use any cheese you prefer.
  • You can add onions, bell peppers, or mushrooms to the sausage and cheese mixture.

  1. 3pinkcrayons – if you freeze it you will need to bake it first. I've read crescent rolls don't rise properly if they are frozen before being baked. I would think this would keep at least a month frozen. Cover it with foil when you reheat it – I would heat it 20-30 minutes if it is thawed.

  2. This is a GREAT recipe and now replaces my old quiche recipe. I also added veggies. It is great for big families (like mine) because each person gets a "row" in the 9×13 pan. Then they can pick the toppings for their section. It is easily adaptable. Thanks!

  3. We really enjoyed this recipe with a couple of slight changes. I used one Jimmy Dean Sausage Breakfast Skillets package ( sausage, potatoes, onions, & peppers cooked from frozen), 1% milk, and one cup of Mexican blend shredded cheese. I found this recipe while searching for breakfast recipes based on Pillsbury Crescent Rolls which my husband loves. We both really enjoyed it and it made a ton of food. We ate one 9×13" pan for breakfast, lunch, and dinner because I was unsure how the eggs would be the next day. I served it with some salsa and a bit of sour cream for lunch & dinner. I hope to try it again using nonfat milk, turkey or chicken sausage, and reduced fat crecsent rolls.

  4. Kimberlee – I think they would be fine. You could always mix up the egg mixture and press out the crescent rolls in the morning and pour the egg/sausage mixture over it then.

  5. Is this one of those breakfast casseroles you can prepare the night before and bake in the morning or do you think the cresent rolls would get soggy?

  6. Just made this for breakfast today! Huge hit for my 3-year old! I can finally get him to eat eggs! Thanks for sharing.

  7. Hi, Steph!
    I fixed this for the hubby & I to have for breakfast over the weekend. We both LOVED it! It's similar to the quiche recipe I used to fix all the time. Hubby says he PREFERS your recipe to the one with pie crust.
    Thanks again for another awesome recipe!
    I agree community and church cookbooks are where you can get some of the BEST recipes!

  8. Just a quick question…sausage cooked prior to putting in with everything or was it left raw and cooked with everything else?

  9. I'm not a big reader of cook books, but some of our best meals have come from the community ones – fortunately Bev reads them.
