Amanda's Breakfast Lasagna

Amanda Bryant Recipe

By Amanda Bryant FluffyGirl

My family begs for breakfast lasagna at least once a week and it's a hit with all of our friends too. I created this last summer when I was looking for something quick and easy to throw together.

Sometimes we add bacon for an extra treat.

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat oven to 350.
2
Brown breakfast sausage in pan over medium heat. Drain when finished.
3
While meat is browning: In a 8x8 glass baking dish spread 4 crescents to make the bottom crust and put in the oven for 7-8 minutes to pre-cook the bottom.
4
When the bottom crust is mostly cooked and starting to become flaky, remove from oven and spread the cream cheese on the bottom. (I have found that microwaving it for 45-60 seconds helps to make it easier to spread)
5
Evenly spread browned breakfast sausage over cream cheese.
6
Spread a generous layer of finely shredded cheese over the sausage.
7
Spread the 4 remaining crescents on top, pinching the seams together to form a crust.
8
Bake for 30-35 minutes or when top crust is nicely browned.

    I do make it ahead of time sometimes. It reheats well if there's any left! When I make a larger one I make it in a 9x13 nonstick pan and double the ingredients.

    We also add bacon sometimes for extra flavor.

    This looks great, Amanda. I'm going to make it but with some (unsugared, unsweetened) fresh blueberries beneath the top crust. This would make a great Sunday Supper with baby spinach leaves in it also.
