Breakfast Casserole


This recipe come courtesy of Michelle's mom. Michelle's family has devoured this every Thanksgiving and Christmas morning that she can remember. It's pretty simple, and takes no time to put together.

Here's what you need:
1 lb country sausage (for some reason our grocery store was out, so we used sweet Italian sausage)
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
3-4 eggs
2 rolls of pre-packaged croissant dough

Here's what you do:
Brown sausage completely in a skillet. This should be about 8-10 minutes. 

Pre-heat your oven to 350 degrees F. 

While your sausage is browning, get started on everything else. Shred 2 cups of cheddar.

In a medium bowl, beat eggs until they're fluffy and then throw in the shredded cheese.

Drain the sausage and set aside.

Grease a 9" x 13" baking dish. Roll out one roll of the croissant dough on the bottom of the baking dish. Push the edges of the dough together so there are no gaps.

Cover that with the sausage.

Then pour the egg-cheese mixture over that.

Then, top with the other croissant dough. Push these edges together as best you can. It's not as important to remove the gaps on the top layer.

Bake for approximately 35 minutes, or until the top looks brown and flaky.
