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 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 this Breakfast Casserole be Frozen?

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.

  1. This looks great. But I do have a ? …… the bottom looks a BIT undercooked for my husbands taste. He complains about this ANYTIME something isn’t totally brown! What could I do, if anything? Do you think it would work if I baked for a few min BEFORE I pour egg mixture on it? Then pull out and complete? If so, how many min would you suggest? Or do you have another idea(s)? Look forward to your reply….READY YO BAKE,,,, Thanks SO MUCH

    1. I think that would be fine. Maybe cook it 5 or 10 minutes first. You may also need to cover the casserole towards the end of the baking time so the rolls don’t get overly brown on top since you cooked them ahead of time.

  2. I made this with maple sausage and sprinkled everything bagel seasoning on top before putting it in the oven. It was perfectly baked in 33 minutes. So freaking delicious! LOVE breakfast casseroles!

  3. One of the best things I've ever eaten. I added this to a Pinterest board several months ago and ever since it's been repinned at least once a day, every single day! I hope people are trying it instead of simply adding it to their recipe collection because it is insanely delicious.

  4. Making it now! Did you only use two 8 count crescent roll cans? It looks like you used maybe 4? Thanks for the recipe! Excited to continue making it

    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.

  5. 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’ve never frozen anything egg-based but was hoping to make this and freeze for when baby comes in a few weeks. Do you think I could do that? Would you bake first, then freeze? Or just assemble it, freeze, then bake later?

        1. I freeze egg-based casseroles all the time unbaked. They are wonderful! This particular casserole I would bake and then freeze because the crescent rolls won’t rise as well after freezing.
