Crescent Rolls Breakfast Recipes Tips
- Choose your favorite breakfast sausage. Ground sausage, not the links. Maple flavor might be a bit sweet for this crescent rolls breakfast recipe, but regular, hot, or sage would be good.
- You’ll have an extra crescent roll from the two tubes. You can fit it into the baking dish or do what you like with it. I’m totally not going to judge you for eating it.
- This Crescent Roll Breakfast Casserole is great with a little hot sauce on it. Or make it extra meaty with cooked & crumbled bacon and diced ham. Yummy!
I really love how much this easy breakfast casserole with sausage puffs up. Going into the oven it doesn’t look like much, but when it’s done baking the whole pan is filled! The cheese gets all melty and the rolls puff up and it’s just SO good! We got 6 servings for breakfast when I made it, but if you’re serving this breakfast crescent roll casserole as part of a buffet, you could cut it into smaller pieces and stretch it farther. So grab a fork and dig in! You do not want to miss this dish!!
