"Baby Mama" Breakfast Casserole

Well, one thing you may or may not know about me is that I really, really really, like breakfast casseroles.  Thankfully, so does my family!!!  Quite awhile ago, I came across this particular recipe through a few blogs I follow - it was served at a baby shower and received HUGE reviews.  It was completely different than the other 4 or 5 that I we already have (and love dearly!). 

As is usual, we tasted it before I got the perfect after picture!

 Stretch out crescent dough and place in the bottom of a 9x13 pan, pushing it up the sides slightly.

 Lay down a good layer of cheese (doubling up as needed)

 Add bacon (or meat of your choice)

Dump the egg mixture on top of everything and cook!!

  • 1 tube crescent rolls
  • 6-8 slices of thickly sliced or grated pepper jack cheese or cheese of your choice
  • 4 eggs
  • 3/4 cup of milk
  • 2 tablespoons dried onion or minced green onion
  • 6 slices bacon (fried and crumbled)
  • salt and pepper
Separate and press dough in sprayed 9X13 pan. Press into bottom and 1 inch up the side of pan, sealing seams. Place cheese slices over the dough, sprinkle with bacon. In a small bowl, combine eggs, milk, salt, and pepper, pour over cheese slices. Cover loosely with foil. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes

**Pillsbury has sheet crescent dough which is perfect for this recipe. 
**Cheese - I used pepper jack sliced cheese on 3/4 of the dish; doing a double layer since it was thin sliced.  I used sliced American cheese on 1/4 of it for the kids because I did not want it to be too spicy for them.  You could experiment with any cheese. (The Pepper Jack cheese was really not spicy at all)
**Meat - I ended up using quite a bit more bacon than the recipe called for because we like our breakfast casserole's meaty.  You could use sausage or a combination; or you could experiment with veggies but I think you would want to pre-cook them some to take away the "rawness" since the recipe doesn't cook a long time. 

As a side note - I made the name of this recipe up - it had no name and, the original post said something about the "Baby Mama requesting the recipe" LOL

Enjoy :-)
