Cover with cooked and drained sausage (you can also use cooked crumbled bacon or diced ham as desired or what you may have on hand as leftovers), mushrooms and half of the cheese.

Mix the eggs with canned soup and pour over casserole.

Sprinkle the remaining cheese on top. Chill overnight.

Bake at 350℉ (180℃) F for about 1 hour until cooked and bubbly.

There are endless possibilities as well; you can use any leftover cooked meat, add green or red sweet peppers and/or Jalapeno peppers for a Tex-Mexican breakfast casserole twist.

Breakfast casserole gruyere: substitute gruyere cheese for the Monterey Jack cheese and use diced ham instead of sausage.

Breakfast casserole with bacon: substitute cooked crisped and drained bacon for the sausage.

Sounds wonderful! But...I have a question, is the soup canned or dry-packaged?

Answer: canned condensed soup - do not use dry soup mix

I'm a little confused - Is this a pastry/ pie type dish.

Its just where I'm from a casserole is more like a stew... looks very tasty though!

Yes, it's more of pastry bottomed pie type dish. A casserole in North American cooking terms is pretty much anything made in a "casserole" dish (pie dish in the UK) and baked in the oven. In UK terms I believe a slow cooker or Crock-Pot type stew could be called a "casserole". Hope this helps!

what is crescent roll dough

Cresent roll dough is effectively puff pastry. A store bought packet of puff pastry should be equivalent.

The soup used in the recipe is a can of condensed cream of onion soup (sometimes called golden onion by some manufacturers). You can substitute a can of cream of mushroom soup if you can't find the cream of onion.
