This Croissant Omelet Breakfast Casserole is super tasty and so easy to prepare. It is the perfect meal to toss in the oven for breakfast if you’re feeding over-night guests, but it is also a simple dinner that feeds a crowd without breaking the bank!
Easy Breakfast Casserole
Are you ready to make an easy breakfast casserole that will replace all other recipes you may have tried over the years? THIS.IS THE.BEST.
My grandma used to make a very similar breakfast casserole loaded with eggs and cheese, and it was delicious. But I took her simple recipe and made it even better by adding a delicious crescent roll crust. This recipe went from tasty to spectacular! (Sorry grandma!)
This is our go-to recipe and I make it probably once a month. My husband requests it, and my kids always devour the entire dish! And did I mention how easy it is to make?
I figured since it was that time of year when plenty of people will be hosting house guests for the holidays, this recipe might make your life easier as well as give your friends and family something delicious to talk about. You’re welcome.
How to Make Breakfast Casserole
You’ll start by spraying a casserole dish with cooking spray, then roll out your crescent dough across the bottom and press the seams together to make one giant piece of dough. Sprinkle your choice of meat on top of the dough. I always have lunch meat on-hand, so I use sliced ham often. We also like cooked crumbled sausage that you buy in a bag in the freezer section.
Next, pour a mixture of eggs and milk with a little pepper on top.
And then top with shredded cheese. We use a mixture of cheddar and mozzarella, but you can use whatever you’d prefer!
Bake for 25 minutes or until the egg is set, then sprinkle with fresh parsley. I also LOVE adding some sliced green onions, but my 4 year old is not a fan!
Slice and serve and you’re good to go!
