See recipe card below this post for ingredient quantities and full instructions.
- Bulk pork sausage – If you prefer, you can use turkey sausage.
- Refrigerated crescent roll dough – The kind that comes in a tube!
- Shredded cheddar cheese – You can switch things up by using a different variety of shredded cheese. Try smoked mozzarella cheese or gouda!
- Eggs – Here’s the best way to crack eggs.
- Whole milk – Whole milk is best, although reduced-fat (2%) will work in a pinch.
- Black pepper
- Use crumbled bacon instead of breakfast sausage for protein.
- Leftover ham from my Crock Pot Ham recipe can also be used instead of sausage.
- Add sliced green onions or garnish with minced chives.
- Make it vegetarian by adding steamed broccoli, sautéed mushrooms, or cooked asparagus.
How to Make Crescent Roll Breakfast Casserole
Preheat your oven to 375°F. Grease a 9×13-inch baking pan with butter or cooking spray.
2. Cook the Sausage
Cook the sausage in a large skillet set over medium heat for 6 to 8 minutes, or until it’s no longer pink. As it cooks, use a wooden spoon to break the sausage into crumbles. Drain off the excess fat.
Unroll the crescent roll dough into the prepared baking dish, pressing the seams to seal them. Sprinkle the sausage and cheese over the dough. Whisk together the eggs, milk, salt, and pepper, and pour the egg mixture over the top of the casserole.
Place the pan in the oven and bake, uncovered, for 35 to 40 minutes, or until a knife inserted into the center comes out clean. Let the casserole stand 5-10 minutes before serving.
How to Store and Reheat Crescent Roll Breakfast Casserole
Storing leftovers is easy! Just wrap the casserole dish in plastic wrap or aluminum foil and place it in the refrigerator. The casserole will stay fresh for up to 4 days. If you want to keep it for longer, you can freeze it for up to 2 months. When you’re ready to eat the leftovers, thaw them overnight in the fridge and reheat in a 350ºF oven until warmed through.
How do you keep egg casserole from falling?
Egg casserole always falls a little bit as it cools; it puffs up in the oven, then deflates slightly. This is fine and not a sign that the recipe didn’t work or that you did anything wrong!
Does breakfast casserole reheat well?
The answer is yes, but there are a few things to keep in mind. First, make sure the casserole is thoroughly cooked before storing or freezing; otherwise, it may not reheat evenly. Second, if you’re reheating from frozen, thaw the casserole in the refrigerator overnight before reheating. Finally, when reheating, be sure to cover the dish with foil or a lid to prevent it from drying out.
