I cut this recipe in half. How I did it was bake it in a 8x8 square pan and just use half the crescent roll dough on the bottom and the other half on the top. I made my own turkey sausage using ground turkey and spices and the milk I used was a mixture of 1% milk and fat free evaporated milk which made it creamier. I did add some fresh ground pepper to the eggs. This turned out like a mix between a strata and a stuffed breakfast pizza. My family liked this but my husband thought it needed a little more inside the crescent rolls. Next time I'll throw in some sauteed vegetables and maybe some spices. Good base recipe to make your own. Read More

YUMMY! I used 1 roll of crescents in an 8x8 pan but kept everything else the same b/c I wanted a nice thick casserole...worked perfectly! Great flavor and couldn't have been simplier...will be making this again! Thanks for sharing.:) Read More

This is a great breakfast casserole! My daughter and my co-workers really enjoyed it and wanted the recipe. I used half mild and half maple flavored Jimmy Dean sausage half mild & half Sharp cheddar cheese lemon pepper seasoning & a zesty season blend. The crust cooked fast and the middle of the casserole was slow to cook. I reduced the temperature to 300 and put the casserole on the lower rack to cook an additional 10 minutes. I still love this dish and plan to do it again but substitute condensed milk with 1 cup of milk instead of the 2 cups of milk. Read More

Great and easy recipe. The only thing I did differently is only used one package of crescent rolls. That seems to be enough. Everyone loved this recipe. I end up making it at least once a week! Read More

Very yummy! I had to cook it at least 10 min longer than the recipe says because it was still too runny...but no worries. Will surely make it again! Read More

This was so awesome! I cut the recipe in half for my square pan. It was perfect! Change nothing! I have to say though that I only refrigerated this for about 4 hours and I used up some Monterey jack cheese instead of cheddar. I baked in my convection oven at 350 and it took exactly 30 minutes. Rock on. K-Dub you're a genius. Read More
