October 27, 2011 at 7:05pm

 One of our readers was looking for breakfast casseroles using crescent rolls and as always the readers here came through with their tried and true favorites. The holidays are coming up so I wanted to save this to a Note where we can find it! These are all reader contributed, so if you have any questions leave them in the comments.


Breakfast Casserole

Shared by Tara Brooks


1-2 pkgs crescents (I use 1 becasue its only my daughter & I, more people use 2)

3 eggs

shredded cheese




Preheat oven to 350. Press edges of crescents together and place half (1 pkg would be 4) on bottom of baking dish. Put sausage (cooked..we use the roll sausage) on top of cresents, add bacon, cheeses & pour eggs over it. Place rest of crescents on top. Bake about 20-25 min.


Next time I'm adding potatoes to it too!!

2 c. mozzarella cheese

1 lb. sausage

3-4 eggs, beaten

1-2 pkgs. crescent rolls


Brown sausage and drain well. Spread crescent rolls with hand for crust to cover pizza pan. Beat eggs well. (If pizza pan has an edge, add a little milk to eggs. Be careful, as eggs can overflow pan.) Over crescent rolls, spread sausage. Pour eggs over sausage. Top with cheese. Bake at 400 until brown.




Breakfast Crescents

Shared by Alysia Cook


Mine is similar to Karla's, but not a casserole. Brown 1 lb. hot ground sausage, drain. Mix with 1.5 bricks of softened cream cheese. Season with Tony Chachere's or Season Salt. Cut in half all crescent rolls in a can of 8, making 8 into 16 small triangles. Fill 16 triangles with mixture, roll up, bake as directed on crescent roll can. Sometimes yields more mixture than you can spoon into each one, so I usually have an extra can (or tiny can) of crescent rolls, in case I need to use part of it, too. Easy & delish breakfast treats in under 15 minutes!

Breakfast Pizza

This isn't necessarily a step-by-step recipe, but it is something I created as a sort of "breakfast pizza". I press crescent rolls in a baking dish and bake them as directed until they're golden brown. Then I make sausage gravy and pour over the crust. Next, make scrambled eggs to put on top of the gravy. Top with cheese and pop it in the oven until @ 350 until cheese is melted. I created the recipe after I had a similar breakfast pizza. It is one of our favorite breakfast for dinner meals! (You could also use jarred or a dry gravy mix and add bacon for a variation.)
