Sausage & Crescent Roll Casserole

I made this tasty breakfast casserole with crescent rolls for a baby shower. It saved me; preparing it ahead gave me more time to finish decorating for the party. —Melody Craft, Conroe, Texas

  • Makes
    12 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 pound bulk pork sausage
  • 1 tube (8 ounces) refrigerated crescent rolls
  • 2 cups shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
  • 8 large eggs
  • 2 cups 2% milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 375°. In a large skillet, cook sausage over medium heat 6-8 minutes or until no longer pink, breaking into crumbles; drain. Unroll crescent roll dough into a greased 13x9-in. baking dish. Seal seams and perforations. Sprinkle with sausage and cheese.
  • In a large bowl, whisk eggs, milk, salt and pepper. Pour over sausage and cheese.
  • Bake, uncovered, 35-40 minutes or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean. Let stand 5-10 minutes before serving.
  • Make-Ahead: Refrigerate unbaked casserole, covered, several hours or overnight. To use, preheat oven to 375°. Remove casserole from refrigerator while oven heats. Bake as directed, increasing time as necessary until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean. Let stand 5-10 minutes before serving.

Test Kitchen Tips
  • Use spicy or mild Italian sausage in the recipe for a flavor twist.
  • It’s usually cheaper to buy cheese in blocks rather than already shredded. So I purchase large quantities of cheddar, Monterey Jack and mozzarella, then use my food processor to shred it myself. I store the shredded cheese in the freezer so I have it when I need it.
