Sausage and Swiss Egg Casserole

Sometimes for simplicity purposes I like to serve breakfast for dinner.  I have a fantastic simple egg casserole that is delicious and easy to throw together.  Unlike many other egg casseroles, you do not make this the night before and store in the refrigerator overnight.  You can put this together in just a few minutes and pop it in the oven for 20 minutes, serve with a nice green salad and have dinner.  I like easy dinners, don't you?

I also use this recipe whenever I have a brunch for my extended family.  Again, it's the perfect recipe for entertaining.  Everyone loves it and it stays good even when sitting out for awhile.

Here are the ingredients I used, plus salt and pepper


1 roll of Bob Evans sausage
5 eggs
1 tube of Pillsbury Crescent Rolls
2 cups shredded swiss cheese
1 cup half and half or heavy cream
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper


Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Lightly grease a glass 9" x 13" pan.

Unroll the crescent roll dough and place in the bottom of the greased glass pan.  Using your fingers, press closed any seams in the dough.

Brown the sausage in a skillet, breaking up into small pieces.  When sausage is completely browned, you can try to drain any grease, then pour evenly on top of crescent dough in glass pan.

Evenly sprinkle the shredded swiss cheese on top the sausage.

Thoroughly mix the cream, salt, pepper, and eggs together and pour over the swiss cheese in the pan.

Place in the preheated oven for approximately 20 minutes.  Dish is done when the top is browned and the crescent roll bottom is cooked.  Let sit for 10 minutes before cutting into squares and serving.

Spread the browned sausage on top of the crescent roll dough

Evenly spread the shredded swiss cheese on top of the sausage

Pour the egg mixture evenly over the swiss cheese

Here is the casserole ready to go into the preheated oven for 20 minutes

If you let the casserole rest for 10 minutes after you take it out of the oven, it will cut nicely into squares

Serve with a nice salad and you have a delicious dinner or brunch
