Sausage Breakfast Casserole Recipe

Breakfast time is supposed to be the best meal of the day and with this sausage breakfast casserole, you will be getting the best! Full of great protein and flavor, you can’t go wrong with this casserole.

If I am being honest, I think breakfast is my favorite meal of the day. You get all the delicious tastes and protein and you can put it all in one dish! My husband loves this meal so much especially when I add some extra bacon to it. 

You can play around with this meal. You can add extra bacon, ham, or any type of vegetables you think your kids will eat! Broccoli and peppers would taste amazing. But, I am pretty partial to how it is since it is super simple to throw together!

You can also make this up the night before and then throw it in the oven when you wake up in the morning. Talk about easy! You could even serve this sausage casserole for dinner.

You could also serve this easily with other dishes like our loaded egg bell pepper ringsovernight apple french toast recipe, or some extremely delicious cinnamon roll french bread bake

See exactly how to make up this sausage breakfast casserole (no bread needed):

To make this breakfast casserole start by preheating the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. 

Next, in the skillet cook up the ground sausage over medium heat, breaking it up as it cooks. Make sure that it browns up completely. Then drain the grease.

Then, unroll the crescent rolls and spread them out into the bottom of the 9×13 inch pan. Press the seams together making it into one large sheet of dough (if you find that your store sells it this way that would work too!).

Now, spread the sausage evenly over top of the dough. Then top the sausage with the shredded cheddar cheese (you can also add in other flavors of cheese here as well if you want).

In a medium mixing bowl, whisk the eggs, milk, oregano, salt, and pepper together until they are well combined. 

Next, pour the egg and spices mixture over top of the cheese and sausage layer. It should just about cover the sausage.

 

Once the eggs and sausage layers have been completed, place the 9 x 13 inch pan in the oven and bake it for about 15-20 minutes or until the crust starts to turn a nice golden brown and the eggs are completely set up.

  1. i make this in a cast iron skillet over an open campfire when we are horsing around! Great filling breakfast!!!!! I also add the hash browns for a little extra comfort.....food factor! Yummy for sure.
    Try putting in some sage into the sausage to give it a bit more bite, blend with some garlic and BAM!!!
    New take on a great base!
  2. My family has made a casserole similar to this for years! We make it every night before Thanksgiving day and Christmas Eve. We do 10 slices of cheap white bread, cubed in a greased pan, then top with cubed sausage patties - we leave them frozen. Then we top with cheese and the egg mixture. We cover it and put it in the fridge overnight, then in the morning mix 1 small can of cream of mushroom soup, 1/2 c milk and a can of diced green chiles together and pour over the top of the pan. Bake for an hour and then devour!

  4. Anyone make it the night before and have it turn out okay? I need to make something for in the morning but won't have time to do a bunch of assembly. Also curious if you could throw asparagus in there and have it come out okay? I like a little green in my egg casserole. :-) This looks really yummy!

    This recipe is now my go-to for when family comes to visit! So easy and so good! The only adjustment I had to make was it took a little longer to bake than the time said, but it was no big deal. My family loves it too, I actually started making two pans because one was always gone too fast.

    I made this recipe this morning for breakfast, the only changes I made were to use 8 eggs, because we are egg fans, and instead of Oregano, I used Tastefully Simple's Herb and Spinach mix. SO GOOD!! Will definitely be making this one again!!
