Easy Breakfast Sausage Casserole Recipe

I think you will agree that this is an incredibly easy casserole recipe. No mixing, no fuss. Just brown some ingredients and bake!

Are you ready to make this amazing dish? Let’s do this!

First you will start by browning up your sausage.  Next you will add some chopped veggies. I like to use peppers, onions, and mushrooms.

But, feel free to add any veggies or leave some off. This breakfast casserole is super flexible. So, mix it up however your heart desires!

While the sausage mixture is cooking, get your oven preheating to 375. Next, start pressing the crescent sheet or crescent roll into the bottom of your pan. Do not spray your baking dish or pan!

Bake the crescent sheet for about 10 minutes. You want to have this mostly cooked through.

Then, you will add some cream cheese to the sausage mixture. Make sure the cheese has completely melted, and everything is mixed well. Now, the crescent sheet should be just about finished cooking.

Simply spread the sausage mixture on top of the crescent sheet. If you want to add scrambled eggs to the casserole add them at this step.

Make ahead casserole tip: Stop at this step, and freeze the casserole. When you are ready to bake follow the next steps. (See I told you I had your back!)

Next you will top the sausage casserole with cheese, and bake for another 5-7 minutes. You’re looking for throughly melted cheesy goodness, and for the crescent sheet to be slightly golden.

Allow the casserole to sit for a few minutes. Yes, it is hard to wait, but try to maintain. Cut into 12 slices, serve, and ENJOY!

I like to top mine with a few green onions too. So feel free to garnish yours too!
