Nice breakfast casserole. I wanted something simple for a work breakfast and this fit the bill. Two things, though: I thought this needed more crust, so I used two packages of crescent roll dough instead of one, and I didn't understand why it needed to chill overnight. I didn't have the time to do that anyway, so I just baked. It was almost gone by the end of the day, and I really enjoyed it, so I think it was a hit. thanks for the recipe! Read More

Didn t have quite enough flavor. Maybe add a small layer of cream cheese between the crust and sausage? Read More

This turned out great. Made this for work - I did one sausage as written above and one veggie (sauteed garlic onions peppers and tomatoes). Read the review about adding 2 crescent roll packages. I split the difference and put in 1 1/2 packages in each pan and found that to be more than enough crust (any more and I feel it would have been too overwhelming). I put in about 2/3rd of the cheese in the recipe because it looked like alot but in retrospect I should have put in the full amount. I used the cheese pizza blend package that Kraft makes and it turned out well. People at work seem to really like it judging by the lack of leftovers. I served this with mixed berries and iced coffee for a complete breakfast. Read More

This was very good and the work mates loved it. I added a half cup of diced sweet bell peppers. I sprinkled them on between the sausage and cheese step. I made it the night before work. After it cooled I cut them into 12 squares and refrigerated them for the next day. Microwaved at work to reheat. Perfect! Read More

Great breakfast pizza! Family hit! I added sautéed red peppers and onions to the turkey sausage and eggs and I topped it w/ half bacon and half turkey bacon. I added salsa and jalapeño peppers to top my slice off and it was DELICIOUS. Read More

This was a huge hit for Christmas brunch with friends and family. Everyone raved about it! Here are a few tweaks I made to the original recipe: added two eggs a little more milk used 3/4 of the sausage and added 1/2 pkg cooked bacon added 3/4 cup diced red bell pepper sautéed with onions in a little of the sausage grease (I put this layer of peppers/onions on top of saus/bacon mix). It cooked in the maximum time shown in original recipe perfectly. Also delicious with pico de gallo and avocado on top! DELICIOUS!!! This one is a keeper!! Read More

We cut this in half for the 3 of us and had leftovers to eat another day cooking in 8x8 pan. We did sauté an onion to add in. when cutting in half even 1 roll of crescents was too much even though we lined the bottom AND sides of our pan. Yummy and filling tho. Thanks for sharing. Did not have time to make the night before just cooked as directed when complete Read More
