Use an oblong glass baking dish for your Crescent Roll & Sausage Breakfast Casserole. I have several the same size for holiday cooking and casserole season.
The beauty of a nice glass baking dish is that you can serve from the baking dish so less clean up is involved!
You will need ground sausage, Crescent Rolls (I prefer this brand), shredded cheese, eggs, half-n-half and seasonings. Because this recipe is versatile, you can add veggies like tomatoes, spinach, peppers, mushrooms or most any chopped vegetable you may like in an egg casserole.
