Sausage and Egg Casserole

Do you ever have one of those dishes that you just have to have at certain holidays or occasions?  For me it is this sausage and egg casserole.  We usually have this for our Christmas breakfast at my Mom and Dad's every year.  We recently changed it so that we eat before coming to Mom and Dads now so I make this at home. We now just do a late lunch with the family at my parents on Christmas, this of course comes after all the presents are exchanged.  It is tradition to have Christmas at my parents house and will remain that way until my parents are no longer able to do this.  It is hard to believe that in three months it will be that time again.  I say every year I am going to be more prepared, it never happens.  We shall see how this year goes.

This recipe is so easy to prepare and so good that its great for dinner.  I had not had this is quite a while and for some reason all of a sudden I really wanted it.  That meant a quick little trip to the store to get a couple ingredients to fix it.  Turns out nothing is quick for us and spent too much time and money at the store and had burgers that night.  I fixed this when I got home the next evening.  This is a very versatile dish to play with.  You can change the ingredients and make it something totally different.  With the two basic ingredients the rest can be switched up and the possibilities are endless.

Cook and crumble a pound of sausage, drain on a paper towel.

Crack 6 eggs into a medium size bowl, add 2 cups of shredded cheese and the sausage.  Mix and pour into a 9x13 inch casserole dish lined with crescent rolls.  Bake in oven at 375 for 15 - 20 minutes.  Check to make sure the eggs are done, this may take a little longer.  I usually check to see if there is still a jiggle and then check with a knife. 

You can change up the cheeses, mix them, add peppers and onions, bacon or mushrooms.  The sky is the limit with this dish.  I hope you get to try this dish and enjoy it as much as my family does.

  1. We happen to be "breakfast for dinner" people and my folks will be so thrilled with this dish :) I can't wait to surprise them!

  2. Funny! I'm working right now on something I only make at certain times. For me, it makes those dishes special.

    Please don't remind me that Christmas is coming fast! Wait. Maybe I do need the reminder ;-)

    Have never made this type of casserole w/ crescents--will have to try that. Loving the idea of all the different add-ins.

  3. Breakfast for dinner is so good! I hope your folks like it Shawn. Michelle, Christmas is coming way too fast and I am not ready at all. I hope you get to try it soon.

  4. Anything made w/ crescent rolls would be a hit in my house! Lol Thanks for sharing at Church Supper. Have a blessed week. See you next Sunday.

  6. This sounds so easy and perfect for my family. This might be a soccer game day breakfast. Come on over and share it on Hunk of Meat Monday.

  9. I made this for my church group and they all loved it! It tastes really good with Maple flavored sausage!

  10. I'm not a seasoned cook. Would like to know how to distribute the crescent rolls. I've never used them before. I look forward to your response. Thanks....

    1. Super simple to do. Just open up the can and unroll. They will be in triangles. Just piece them together (make sure no holes) and fill in the casserole dish. You can also buy crescent dough in sheets. That makes casseroles like this much easier.

    2. Thanks so much for responding to my comments. I expect to try this recipe this coming weekend. Thanks again.


I love hearing from you. Thank you so much for stopping by and leaving me a comment!
