The Best Ever Breakfast Bake

Pin Recipe

This is just as the name suggests – the Best Ever Breakfast Bake. Made with scrambled eggs, creamy sausage and cheddar cheese in between croissant roll sheets, this is my idea of the perfect breakfast. My family makes this the morning of every holiday or any time we have guests over because it is always a crowd pleaser. I promise it will become your family staple, too!

Tips & Substitutions

  • My favorite vegetables to include in this breakfast bake are onions and bell peppers, but feel free to add in your vegetables of choice!
  • I personally prefer to use ground breakfast sausage for this recipe, but using diced sausage links would also work. The reason I like to push the onion & pepper to the edge of the pan before adding the sausage is to make sure that the sausage gets nice & browned.
  • It is important to transfer the breakfast sausage mixture directly into the bowl with cream cheese & let it sit for 4-5 minutes so that the cream cheese softens and mixes in easily.
  • Gently fold the eggs into the creamy sausage mixture to ensure the eggs maintain their texture.
  • If you are able to find croissant roll sheets, that will work best here! If not, a can of regular croissant rolls will work.
  • I often get the question of if you are able to prep this dish in advance. The only step that I would recommend prepping in advance is the sausage and cream cheese mixture. It will taste best if you scramble the eggs immediately before baking.
