Sausage Crescent Rolls on Pinterest. It sounded and looked good and I happened to have a couple tubes of Crescent Rolls in my fridge and the time, along with no idea what I was going to make for dinner. I added scrambled eggs and some grated cheese on top to make it more like breakfast bake
It was a hit! Everyone agreed they want to have it for our Christmas Eve Breakfast Dinner this year. I LOVE this plan. I won’t be in the kitchen all night……the whole thing start to finish takes at most 35 minutes and I’ll mix up some smoothies and Easy Gingerbread Waffles (another super easy and fast recipe) and we’ll call it good.
If you like to do your big breakfast on Christmas morning but hate the time it takes, you can put this together the night before, cover it tightly with plastic wrap and put it in the fridge until you are ready to cook it on Christmas Morning. The waffle batter can even be mixed up the night before.
**refer to these how to pictures when forming “bakes.”
- 2 packages refrigerated crescent rolls
- 1 lb breakfast sausage (don't get links or precooked sausage)
- 8 ounces cream cheese
- 7 eggs
- ⅓ cup milk
- salt and pepper
- 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
- Garnish with green onions if desired
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees
- Brown sausage in medium frying pan, once sausage is completely cooked, I like it nice and browned, turn off heat and mix in cream cheese until evenly distributed
- Whisk together, eggs, milk and salt and pepper. Scramble the eggs in a frying pan on the stove top or to save time cook them in the microwave.
- **If cooking eggs in the microwave use a glass dish or bowl and cook for 3 minutes, stop and stir, if still wet, cook in 30-60 second intervals, stopping to stir in between each one until eggs are completely cooked.
- Open crescent rolls and place 4 triangles together (making a long rectangle) on a baking sheet. Press out the perforated holes to seal as one piece. You want to fit two bakes on one sheet so make sure you are leaving space for both.
- Repeat with 4 more triangles, so you have to large side by side rectangles of crescent dough.
- Evenly divided eggs and spread them on the two rectangles. Next divide the sausage mixture and put it on top of the eggs, evenly. I found the easiest way to do this was by the spoonful, because spreading is a bit difficult with the mixture.
- Open remaining tube of crescent rolls and use 4 triangles to make a large rectangle to top the sausage mixture. Press edges and seal.
- Bake at 350 for 20-25 minutes, Sprinkle with cheese during the last 3-5 minutes of cooking time.
- Garnish with sliced green onions if desired and serve.
