This is a scrumptious breakfast or brunch casserole. It has all the elements of breakfast in one dish and is easy and fast to make. It is so good that all bridal and baby showers at my work are now planned in the morning and I'm asked to bring this as refreshment!

Blue Ribbon Recipe

Ok, TWO bricks of cream cheese may sound like a lot to you... and you'd be right! But it's this healthy amount of cheese that makes this crescent sausage casserole so decadently creamy and rich. Easy to throw together, the hot sausage gives the casserole a punch of flavor but the cream cheese mellows out the spice. Enjoy this casserole for any meal, but it's really delicious alongside eggs for a nice brunch.

  • Cream cheese and sausage mixed together.
    Add the cream cheese to the cooked, warm sausage, and mix together.
  • Crescent roll dough pressed into a baking dish.
    Unroll one can of crescent rolls and spread it out in the bottom of the baking dish, pressing the seams together.
