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. I love this! We use a can of the Crecent Roll Dough Sheet so I don’t have to press any seams out because I always miss some. LOL a can of green chilies gives it a nice added kick too! (squeeze out any of the extra juice)

  2. Hello, Miss Steph! I somehow have just discovered this recipe, and was wondering if I might share it with my sister? Had it for dinner last night, and it was perfectly amazing!!! I, too, made a few small changes. I used Jimmy Dean "Crumbles" precooked, crumbled sausage to save me a step! I really appreciated this wonderful (and EASY) recipe for a Monday night! Thank you.

  3. We had some overnight guests last week and I made this for breakfast – it recieved rave reviews! Most of our guests are hearty breakfast eaters so I doubled the sausage and added 1 cup each of sauteed onion and mixed peppers. I used 1% milk since it's what I had and the rest of the ingredients I didn't alter. Everyone enjoyed it and it was gone before I could get a piece! Because of the additional sausage and veggies I did have to add 15 minutes of cooking time. We'll be enjoying this recipe again!
