Breakfast Bake is a delicious egg casserole with sausage, green bell peppers, and cheese over a flaky crescent roll crust. Make this breakfast bake on special occasions or just when you want an amazing breakfast!
I’ve been making this Breakfast Bake for as long as I can remember. It’s been a tradition here at the Lofthouse Casa to make this indulgent, hearty breakfast every Christmas morning.
When I say that, I mean I seriously only ever make it on that one day of the year. That way, it makes it so much more special and we look forward to it even more.
My Mom started this tradition many years ago for me and my siblings. Every Christmas morning she would make this yummy bake after we opened presents. I absolutely loved it, so I adopted it for myself once I got married and had kids. They have come to really love it too!
Even though I have chosen to eat this heavenly casserole only one day a year, that doesn’t mean you have to. You can enjoy this Breakfast Bake whenever you desire! Those lazy Sunday mornings or weeknights when you’re feeling like breakfast for dinner, or even for a simple brunch.
If you love a good savory, protein-filled and satisfying breakfast, then this recipe definitely is for you!
The eggs, juicy sausage (I prefer turkey sausage), and a layer of melted cheese over the top are all amazing, but what really makes this Breakfast Bake a show stopper is the flaky, buttery crescent dough crust. It adds a unique texture to the casserole that is so delicious.
So what are you waiting for? Grab that baking dish and get to cooking this mouthwatering Breakfast Bake and then report back to me so I know how much you loved it! 😉
