 Breakfast Casserole

Recently I posted my favorite cake recipe. For Throwback Thursday,  I’m posting another classic, basic, breakfast casserole. There are 100 variations of breakfast casseroles and I’ve tried dozens of them. However, I always go back to this one.

It’s simple.

It’s delicious.

I always have ingredients in my pantry staples for it.

The best recipes don’t have to have a lot of ingredients and steps. For me, convenience is a huge factor in making a recipe over and over. And, of course, it has to taste good. This Best Breakfast Casserole is all of that. I never have a brunch that I don’t include this recipe. As well, every time I serve this breakfast casserole, I have a request for the recipe.

This recipe is great for brunches, early morning tailgating before football games and for breakfast during holidays. It’s quick and easy to make and you probably already have all the ingredients on hand.

The base of my casserole is crescent rolls The original recipe has pork breakfast sausage, but I have used ham and bacon and both are a good substitute. Use your favorite, or what you have on hand. Also, I know Velveeta cheese is frowned upon by a lot of folks, but I like the creamy of it. Feel free to use shredded cheddar, Monterrey, Colby, or another favorite cheese.
