There’s nothing better than waking up to a hearty, protein-packed breakfast! This breakfast casserole, which can be made the night before, is cheesy, meaty and and so satisfying.

And as much as I love a sweet breakfast casserole, getting some meat and eggs is a great way to fill up on protein. My whole family loves this casserole and I hope yours does too!!

Growing up on a pig farm

Have you ever thought about where you food comes from?? Not like what aisle of the grocery store it’s in, but the farm it actually is raised on? When it comes to pork, the way it’s raised is something I’m quite familiar with. Why? Because I grew up on a pig, corn and soybean farm in southeast Iowa.

I loved life on the farm – it taught me hard work, how to work as a team and how to care for animals and the environment. And although my farm experience comes from just my family’s operation, animal welfare is important no matter the size or location of the farm.

I’m so excited to be partnering with Wisconsin Pork on this post. Pork is a staple in our house and a delicious breakfast casserole is something everyone needs in their recipe box!

Ingredients Needed

  • Eggs – Large or extra-large eggs will work (using medium eggs? Use 12!)
  • Milk – I used 1%, but skim, 2% or whole milk would work too
  • Bell Peppers – Use whatever color you like! I prefer red or orange bell peppers, but green would work great too. And if you don’t like peppers, skip them!
  • Green Onions – Use the green tops AND the white toward the root when chopping them
  • Seasoned Salt – Use whatever brand you have on hand!
  • Croissant Rolls – You’ll need 6 cups once they’re cubed; it took 6 of the large croissants I had purchased (croissants vs crescent rolls below!)
  • Breakfast Sausage Links – You can use precooked breakfast links or cook a package of raw breakfast links according to the package instructions
  • Shredded Cheese – You can use cheddar, Monterey jack, pepper jack, etc!

Croissants vs Crescent Rolls

You really can use either. Croissants tend to be more buttery and flaky whereas crescent rolls (aka butterhorn rolls) are more light and fluffy. Here’s how to use each….

  • Croissants – Simply cube and add to the dish
  • Crescent Rolls – If you made your own or have already prepared crescent rolls, just cube them and they’re ready to go
  • Refrigerated Crescent Roll Dough – Simply make according to the package instructions, let cool then cut into cubes

What kind of sausage should I use?

As you can see in the photos, I used cooked breakfast sausage links. However, using pre-cooked breakfast sausage links or patties would work great and be even more convenient! You could also use ground pork sausage. Simply brown, drain the fat and sprinkle into the casserole.

One thing I love about pork is its versatility! Although this recipe calls for sausage, bacon or diced ham would also work great and be so delicious! (I mean, who doesn’t love bacon?!!)

What to serve with a breakfast casserole

I like to serve a savory breakfast casserole with some type of fruit, whether it’s a frozen fruit cup, a smoothie or a simple bowl of fresh fruit. Add a glass of milk, orange juice or a cup of coffee and your day is off to a great start!

    This is so yummy, our family gobbled it up. Thank you!

  2. I have found my Christmas morning breakfast from 2021 on! It was seriously the best breakfast casserole I’ve ever made, and I will definitely be making it again! My store must have larger croissants on offer than yours, because I bought a package of 6 large croissants and still had 2 1/2 left after measuring out 6 cups of cubes. I used a one pound package of turkey breakfast sausage in place of the regular sausage. I recommend offering Garlicky Greengo salsa by Hot Line with it – it’s the perfect accompaniment for people who like salsa on eggs. Thank you for this recipe!

    1. Love this!!! Thanks so much for leaving a review. So glad you enjoyed it. And I love that you added salsa – I love salsa on my eggs! 🙂 Thanks again!!

    So tasty! I used spicy Turkey sausage and oat milk as substitutes. Big hit in my household!

    1. Woohoo! So glad your family enjoyed it and great to know the substitutions worked out well. Thanks for sharing!!! 🙂 -Kelsey

  4. If you refrigerate overnight, does it still take only 30 minutes to bake? Thank you!

    1. Hi Joan – Great question. It will probably take 5-10 additional minutes. Hope you enjoy!!! 🙂
