Ingredients needed for Sausage Breakfast Casserole with Crescent Rolls
- Crescent Dough Sheet – A crescent dough sheet is easier to work with, but you can also use regular crescent rolls as well.
- Pork Sausage – Get the breakfast pork sausage for extra flavor in this tasty casserole.
- Mozzarella Cheese – If you want your cheese to be extra melty, buy a block of mozzarella and shred your own cheese.
- Cheddar Cheese – You can use mild or sharp cheddar cheese, whichever you prefer!
- Eggs – This recipe uses a lot of eggs, but make sure you use the amount needed. It may seem like too many, but it will make the perfect amount of casserole.
- Yellow Onion – I recommend using a yellow onion because it has a much milder flavor that won’t be overpowering.
- Milk – You can use whole milk, 2% milk, skim milk, or any other kind you’d prefer. Whole milk will give your casserole the creamiest result.
- Salt and Black Pepper – A pinch of salt and pepper will go a long way in this flavorful recipe.
How to Make a Crescent Roll Breakfast Casserole
- Grease your casserole dish and place the crescent roll sheet in the bottom. Make sure you stretch it and press it out so that it covers the entire bottom of the pan.
- In a large skillet, brown the pork sausage and onion until there’s no pink left. Then, drain off the excess grease.
- In a mixing bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, salt, and pepper until throughly combined. Then, stir the mozzarella cheese and half of the cheddar into the eggs.
- Spread the pork sausage crumbles onto the crescent roll sheet. Pour the egg mixture on top of the sausage and crescent rolls.
- Sprinkle the remaining cheese on top of the casserole and bake until the edges are golden brown.
