My in-laws were visiting over Easter weekend (also my husband’s birthday!) and because they were leaving on Easter Sunday to head back to Pennsylvania, we decided to put a brunch together rather than do a whole big dinner. We had fruit, cinnamon rolls, mimosa’s and this delicious breakfast casserole, which is way more like a pizza than a casserole.
I threw it together in a matter of minutes, they only thing I had to cook was the sausage…and I use the word “cook” lightly because, Jimmy Dean makes these sausage crumbles that are already cooked and just need heated through. And it’s turkey sausage, too! I browned the turkey sausage and threw that, the cheese and tomatoes all on top of the crust (crescent rolls) and baked it until it the eggs were set and the crust was puffy and golden brown. We sliced it into squares and ate it with our hands, just like a pizza.
I can only imagine all the goodies that you could throw into this. I mean, just think about what you like in an omelette…peppers, mushrooms, ham? This is a whatever you like, that’s how you make it type dish. I hope you’ll try it your way and let me know!
12 – 16 slices
1 package of crescent rolls
1 1/2 cups cooked crumbled sausage
2 Roma tomatoes, diced
1 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
1/4 cup milk
1/2 tsp salt
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Unroll the crescent rolls onto a 9 x 13-inch baking sheet and press down to close the seams. Top with the cooked, crumbled sausage, tomatoes and cheese. Whisk eggs, milk, salt and pepper in a medium bowl until combined and pour over the top of the casserole.
Bake 15-20 minutes until the eggs are set and the crescent roll crust is golden brown. Cut into squares and serve.
