Sausage Breakfast Casserole

This is a great breakfast casserole! I got the recipe from Pinterest (love!) and it is wonderful, easy, and sure to become a breakfast/brunch favorite. It's made in a 9x13 so it's also great to take to a potluck brunch. I served it with a fruit salad and English muffin bread. It was delicious!

Sausage Breakfast Casserole

12 oz Jimmy Dean reduced fat bulk sausage (you can cut this in half if desired)
1 tube crescent roll dough
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
5 eggs
1/4 cup milk
1/2 teaspoon dried rosemary
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Cook sausage in a skillet, breaking up as it cooks. Brown sausage completely. Unroll crescent roll dough and spread into the bottom of a 9x13 baking dish, pressing seams toether to make one large sheet of dough. Spread sausage evenly over the crescent roll dough. Sprinkle cheese on top of sausage. In a bowl combine eggs, milk, rosemary (I rub the rosemary in my hands before adding to break it up and release the oils), salt, and pepper. Pour the egg mixture as evenly as possible over the casserole. Bake at 400 for 15-20 minutes, until the crust is golden on the edges and the eggs are set.
