Make this easy breakfast casserole with crescent rolls for your next Sunday morning breakfast or special holiday brunch. It’s filled with crescent rolls, eggs, sausage, hash browns, and cheese!
This recipe for breakfast casserole with crescent rolls was originally shared with me during my single days of working in the city. I was attending a Christmas morning brunch and was supposed to bring a dish that could feed a crowd. I was not much of a cook in those days.
A friend mentioned she had a recipe for an easy and filling Christmas breakfast casserole. Her dad made it every year on Christmas morning while she was growing up. In fact, he made it the night before and refrigerated it.
This was a totally new concept for me! I was excited to be able to bring an actual home-baked meal and not have to stress over making it first thing in the morning.
