Cheesy Egg Crescent Roll Casserole

Crescent Casserole Recipe - Family Fresh Meals

Whenever I have a crowd for breakfast, I like to serve a hearty breakfast casserole. Here’s my latest example: Cheesy Egg Crescent Roll Casserole.

You make this kind of like a quiche, with refrigerator crescent rolls – the kind that come in a tube – to form the crust. You lay those out in the pan, and then cover them with a rich, eggy batter loaded with cheese, bacon, milk, and cream.

But as you bake it, the coolest thing happens. Instead of staying on the bottom, the crescent rolls soak up the egg mixture and start to puff. So by the time the eggs are fully cooked – about 20 to 25 minutes – the crescents have swelled up right to the top of the pan and made a gorgeous, golden-brown top.

This isn’t just gorgeous to look at – it also has a wonderful, tender texture unlike anything you’ve ever tried. It’s kind of like a cross between a flaky crescent roll and really good, moist French toast. And the hearty mixture of eggs, milk, and bacon makes the whole dish both savory and satisfying.

    I give up–what is “cookies bacon”? Wouldn’t regular cooked bacon sluces crumbled work the same way?

    1. Yes! Sorry there was a misprint cookie bacon was supposed to be cooked bacon ?

    2. Sam Frazier says:

      Give me calories per serving g.

    3. This recipe was a bit disappointing , so doughy had to cook it much longer and still doughy ?

    4. Also I would pre-cook the dough first next time

  2. Tammy Corrigan says:

    Should probably proof read What is cookies bacon I’m gonna try this recipe

    1. Haha. That totally slipped through the cracks! All fixed up!

  3. Nancy Williams says:

    Question do you cook bacon?? I enjoy your site and recipes

    1. Yes! Sorry there was a misprint cookie bacon was supposed to be cooked bacon 🙂

    2. Can I prepare this the night before, refrigerate, and bake it in the morning?

  4. the recipe calls for heavy cream but the description only mentions milk. Did you sub milk for the cream and it came out just fine, because that’s what I figured I would do. I always have milk around but never cream.
