Egg and Sausage Casserole

The blog is BACK, BABY!!  I've done several blogs over the years but this was the one I always wished I would have kept up.  I have always thought that we do dinner right at this house.  We plan ahead, we don't eat out very often, and we love our leftovers.  We also have a sense of adventure; constantly looking for new recipes or trying variations on the tried-and-true.  Combine all of that with a great family environment and you get "Dinner with the Browns".

Tonight was breakfast for dinner; a family favorite.  Sometimes that means pancakes for the girls and an omelette for the adults but tonight we went for the breakfast casserole.  As you'll see by this first picture, it was a Christmas present to Lisa and an awesome meal that finally inspired me to log on to blogger for the first time in 5 and a half years!

So Lisa tells me that this recipe was shared with her by a good friend, Taryn.  I haven't come up with a rating system but if I had one, this would get the highest marks across the board!! 

1 pound pork sausage
1 (8 ounce) package refrigerated crescent roll dough
10 eggs, beaten
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1 teaspoon dried oregano
¼ cup milk

1. Place sausage in a large, deep skillet. Cook over medium-high heat until evenly brown. Drain, crumble, and set aside.

2. Preheat oven to 325° F. Lightly grease a 9x13" baking dish

3. Line the bottom of the prepared baking dish with crescent roll dough, and sprinkle with crumbled sausage.  In a large bowl, mix beaten eggs, mozzarella, and cheddar.  Season the mixture with oregano, and pour over the sausage and crescent rolls.  

4. Bake 25 to 30 minutes in the preheated oven, or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean.  
......and voilà!!

For us, we had to keep baking (in 3 minute increments) until the middle stopped jiggling.  Lisa thought the eggs went just a little bit too long but it tasted just right to me.  

And with that, we're back!!  Hope you'll stop by and see what we're having for dinner.
