YUMMY!! I read a lot of reviews before making this and came up with the following: I cooked sausage and allowed to sit on paper towels to soak up the grease. sprayed the dish with cooking spray, cooked the cresent "crust" for 7 mins. Used 8 eggs, combined sausage and eggs in skillet, cooked about 3 mins stirring constantly, just to allow them to set up a little.(others had mentioned the eggs not cooking well in the oven) poured over cresent topped with shredded colby jack cheese. Baked @375 for 20 mins. This turned out PERFECT!! Allowing the eggs to cook on the stove for a few mins is important because the crust doesn't get soggy and the eggs are cooked completely without the crust burning!! Thanks for a great recipe!!


Like others, I did some modifying - I recommend 2-2 1/2 cups of assorted cheeses in this casserole...I will mix up to 4 kinds, including cheddar, monterray jack, colby, provolone, gruyere, gouda...just experiment! I also used 7 eggs to 1 cup of milk. For seasoning...try the finer ground (for table use) Mrs. Dash in the egg mix, along with a sprinkle of chili powder on the top. Onion browned with the sausage is better, also. I baked this wonderful casserole at 375 for 26 minutes - NTE: it is a MUST to prebake the crescent rolls, I baked mine at 375 for 6-7 min. FYI - I'm the one w/the firefighter husband and this recipe scored HUGE hits with his crew. I have tried out alot of recipes for them off this site and this is one of the best. You can also give it a southwest twist by using green chilies, olives, and using taco seasoned ground beef (or deer meat) in place of the sausage. This version cut into smaller pieces would make a good appetizer!


WOW! No sooner did I serve this breakfast casserole and it was gone! Easy, quick, tasty, no need to add or tweek it in anyway. Great even cold at lunch or warmed the next day. One note: the crescent dough will come out mushy if the sausage is cooked before baking the casserole for the appointed 15 minutes so add an extra 5 minutes to harden it. The first time I made this I cooked the sausage the night before and it sat in the frig overnight. The next morning the 15 minute baking time was served a perfect casserole. The second time I made this casserole I cooked the sausage just before baking and the crescent roll on the bottom was too soft. The additional 5 minutes baking time was effective. Enjoy this meal. My husband is eager for me to make it again.
