Breakfast Casserole

easy breakfast casserole

Breakfast Casserole – It’s not just for Breakfast! We always have it for dinner. :) And it could not be easier to make! That’s a good thing, because Breakfast Casserole is one of Kevin’s Most Requested Meals so I make it a lot. :p

Wanna make it? Here’s what you’ll need:

1 pkg crescent rolls
1 lb mild sausage, browned and drained
6 eggs, beaten
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese

Preheat your oven to 350. Take a 9×13 pan and spray it with Pam. Roll out crescent rolls in the bottom of the pan:

Top with an even layer of browned and drained sausage:

Then pour in beaten eggs:

And top with cheese! :)

Bake at 350 for 30 mins.

If you want to have this for breakfast, you can brown your sausage the night before and keep it in the refrigerator until morning. Then all you have to do in the morning is put everything together and you have a quick and easy breakfast! :) Breakfast Casserole also microwaves up well if you have leftovers. We usually hate leftovers but this is one thing Kevin will actually eat the next day. :)

I have been making this for 10+ years and the whole family loves it.
I use croutons instead of cresent rolls, you have to refrigerate it (uncooked) for at least 4 hours I usually do it overnight.
Right before I bake it I open a can a cream of mushroom soup and drop spoonfulls all over the top of the casserole, and it is delicious!

This is easily a 5 star dish. I make this with cubed bread instead of crescent rolls and also added 1/2 tsp. dry mustard for extra flavor. Everyone raves over it. Even me. YUMMMMMMMmmm

I made this last night and all I can say is YUMMY! It was so good. My husband loved it. I think next time I’ll experiment more and put green peppers, etc in it. I didn’t make a big pan and should have. Thanks for the great recipe!

I have made this 2 times now. Instead of cooking it in a 9×13″ pan; I make the mixture into muffins. I made it last time with bacon and sausage(I had bacon that was going to go bad so I fried it up and used it in here) And WoW… I should have made more than 12 muffins… They were gone in about 10 minutes! So easy!

We’re trying this tonight! Can’t wait. May I suggest also putting it in the breakfast category? I went to the market to get the stuff and came back to view the recipe….looked in the breakfast category and couldn’t find it. I saw you were re-doing the website and thought you took it off {hehe}

The fettucine alfredo and chicken were delish. I love your recipes!

I made this for dinner last night….My daughters and my husband ate the entire thing!! Thanks for the simple yet delicious recipe. I used Sage Sausage (YUM you have to try it) and instead of crescent rolls I used White Wheat Bread 4 slices crust off and flattened a bit, just put them in the bottom…It worked out perfect and saved some calories!! Oh, I also saved some calories by only sprinkling 1 cup of shredded cheddar on top…it spread thinly and worked just fine!

I made this dish today and it was a HIT! I added an extra egg becuase i usually use jumbo but only had large eggs. Everyone was raving about this dish and it was gone in less than an hour. It is by far the easiest and one of the best dishes i have ever made. I will probably make it again tomorrow.

I’ve tried lots of your recipes, and we love all of them. Your red beans and rice is a favorite.
I just took this breakfast casserole out of the oven, and it’s beautiful. Can’t wait to dive in. I added a little chopped, sauteed red onion with the sausage (because it was lonely in my fridge).
Trying your ice cream recipe next. Oh, my.
Great web site! Thanks, Amanda and Kevin!

Hi K&A!!! I stumbled upon your lovely website looking for a good breakfast casserole recipe. That search didn’t take long b/c yours popped up right away. Made this and added green peppers and red onions. D-LISH! I love your website and have it bookmarked. I’ve shared it with many friends and families. As a photographer I also enjoy your photos and as a pup mom I love looking at your sweet furbabies.

Keep up the good work and keep bringing us your yummy recipes-Thanks!

I made this dish for my co-workers since it was my turn to bring in breakfast for the team. Usually we get donuts or bagels and I wanted to spice things up and try something new…..it was a hit!!! My inbox was flooded with emails saying how amazing it was! So thank you very much for the idea. I did change the recipe slightly, I doubled the recipe for the same size of pan so 2 rolls of croissant rolls (I also baked them for 4min to give them a little fluff), a dozen of eggs, 4 cups of cheese packed on top, and I also added bacon pieces in with the sausage. The baking time had to increase a little, but not by much 40min instead of 30min and it was ready to go. Thanks again!

You guys totally rock!! I have made a few different recipes on your website and they were awesome. The breakfast casserole has turned into a tradition in my family. Whenever I visit my parents or relatives I am expected to make this for the couple days that I am there for breakfast. I do not mind because it is so simple and delicious. Keep up the great additions. Look forward to coming back to website. Tracy

Amanda- We also love a variation of this recipe. A friend had given me the recipe, and her’s calls for OreIda Potatoes O’Brien (which has the peppers and onions diced up in it). We add a splash of milk to the eggs, add the cheese, and then sprinkle itwith parmesan cheese. I make it in a large springform pan. It is very thick, this way (more like a quiche) and takes about an hour to bake. We call it breakfast pizza. Thank you for sharing your variation. I recently found, and love your blog. They are family friendly, and I love the calorie counter. There are so many recipes I plan to make.

This was a hit with my boys and husband. I used bread because I try to stay away from premade stuff like crescent rolls. Also, I ended up needing 9 or 10 eggs to totally cover all the sausage but that was fine because we normally eat two eggs a piece anyway! :) Thanks for a great recipe.

I love this recipe except there are a few things i do differently. 1) add i can mushroom soup to the 6 eggs. beat well. add 1/4 c milk to egg mixture mix well. 2) 6 slices of bread cubed, instead of the pillsbury dough. 3) once everything is put together i seal and put in refrigerator over night. Bake in the morning YUMMO :)

Hi! I found this recipe on your blog and was excited to make it! I cooked it and everything was delicious but there is one thing I had a problem with! When I poured the egg mix into the casserole, it all kind of plopped in to one place. It didn’t really “pour evenly”. Thus, we got stuck eating it with some parts egg and some parts not. It was still yummy, but clearly not the way it was intended to be! Any tips or suggestions for how to make it work for me better next time?!

Claudia September 3, 2012 at 11:22 am

I made this for breakfast this morning and it came out really well. I had to make a few changes because I bought 2 bags of the prepackaged sausage crumbles made by Jimmy Dean and it was three ounces over the 16 ounce meat directions, so when I poured the six eggs, it wasn’t enough to cover it all. So I added two additional eggs (a total of 8 eggs) to compensate for the extra sausage crumbles, and it worked out perfectly. Everything else, I did as instructed. Great recipe, and the kids loved it, even my four year old, and she’s an EXTREMELY picky eater!

I have made this recipe for some time with a little alteration. I cook the bottom layer of crescent for about 5 min before adding the ingredients and then after all the ingredients are added I top it off with another layer of crescent rolls. An easy way to stretch this is to add more eggs and stick with the same amount of meat.
