1 pound bulk pork sausage
1 tube (8 ounces) refrigerated crescent rolls
2 cups shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
8 large eggs
2 cups 2% milk
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
Preheat your oven to 375°. In a large skillet, cook sausage over medium heat for 6-8 minutes or until no longer pink, breaking it into crumbles. Drain any excess grease.
Unroll crescent roll dough into a greased 13×9-in. baking dish. Seal seams and perforations. Sprinkle the cooked sausage evenly over the crescent roll dough, followed by the shredded mozzarella cheese.
In a large bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, salt, and pepper. Pour the egg mixture evenly over the sausage and cheese in the baking dish.
Bake, uncovered, for 35-40 minutes or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean. Let the casserole stand for 5-10 minutes before serving.
To Make Ahead:
Refrigerate the unbaked casserole, covered, for several hours or overnight. When ready to bake, preheat the oven to 375°. Remove the casserole from the refrigerator while the oven heats. Bake as directed, adjusting the time as necessary until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean. Let it stand for 5-10 minutes before serving.
For a burst of freshness, consider adding diced bell peppers or spinach to the egg mixture before baking.
