Breakfast Bake Deliciousness

If you remember back to my Christmas posts, I tried a new breakfast bake Christmas morning.  It was a big hit with Tyler so we decided to make it a tradition.  Well, apparently he liked it so much that he asked me to make it every Sunday so he could eat it during the week for breakfast, haha.  Yesterday morning when I saw this note on the fridge when I got up, I thought I better share the recipe.

In case you can't read his messy writing - "That was/is your best egg bake EVER. Wow. DELICIOUS!  Thanks, Dad

I got the recipe from one of my favorite recipe blogs Life as a Lofthouse and just changed it up a little.

1 8oz package of crescent dinner rolls
1 8 oz package of pre-cooked sausage links
6 eggs, beaten (original recipe calls for 4, but I think 6 is perfect)
3/4 cup milk
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/4 teaspoon oregano
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
(original recipe calls for 2 tablespoons of chopped green pepper - Tyler said he couldn't taste the difference when I added them, so I saved myself some time and avoided them the last couple of times)
1.  Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
2. In a 9x13 baking dish, spread the crescent rolls and press dough into the bottom and up the sides a little bit.
3. Slice the sausage links into small pieces and spread onto the dough.
3. Mix eggs, milk, salt, pepper and oregano (green pepper if you want) in a bowl.
4. Pour the mixture over the sausage.
5. Sprinkle the cheese over the top.
6. Bake 20-25 minutes or until golden brown (this last time I did exactly 20 and it was perfect - I mean did you see that note? ;) 

It's so easy and Tyler said it's just as good leftover than it is when we ate it right away.  Now I feel like I might need a new Christmas morning recipe since this one will probably be so old by then.  I'm just happy he likes it though.  And by the way, I love it too.  I can only eat so much though.  And Kyla eats it once in awhile too, but she prefers her Cheerios :)
