Cheesy Sausage and Veggie Casserole

If I am in need of a comforting, quick and easy weeknight meal, this is one of my go to recipes. It is very hearty, and a crowd pleaser for sure. It is also an extremely flexible recipe, which is another HUGE plus. Feel free to mix it up. Don’t like mushrooms? Leave them out. Looking for more of a breakfast dish? Add some scrambled eggs. Like I said…super flexible, and so easy to throw together. It is just one of those dishes that will make your tummy smile.

First I start by browning up my sausage

Then I start chopping my veggies.

Now it’s time to prep our crescent roll sheet.

Spread the roll into your pan or baking dish, and bake on 375 for 10 minutes. I use a 13×9 baking dish. Do not grease or spray your pan. I cannot emphasize this enough. Trust me, this will only make the crescent roll a soggy mess which equals not yummy.

Now add the sausage mixture to the mostly cooked crescent sheet, and top with cheese.

Bake for another 5-7 minutes, or until cheese is melted and crescent roll sides are slightly golden.

Allow to cool for a few minutes, and cut the casserole into 8 pieces. I like to garnish with green onions. I also like to serve such a hearty meal with a light and simple salad. I truly hope you enjoy this recipe as much as my family does. Happy eating! XO
