Grandma Mack's Breakfast Casserole

I haven't posted because our computer is on the fritz, but never fear, I am here! I decided to try a new recipe out yesterday that I never had before, and it was AWESOME!! My oldest ds, myself, and my husband ate almost the whole pan by ourselves! It really hit the spot. We had breakfast for supper!


The Menu:

The Original Recipe:
I found this recipe on this CFYF recipe board. It is also found on Babycenter Bullitain boards, Cooking for your family.

Ingredients:

1 Tube Refrigerated Crescent Rolls (8 Oz)
2 Cups Jimmy Dean Breakfast Sausage Cooked and Crumbled
6 Eggs (beaten)
½ Cup Milk
Salt & Pepper
2 Cups Frozen Hash brown Potatoes (thawed)
1 ½ Cups Shredded Cheddar or Monterrey Jack Cheese

1: Arrange Crescent rolls on the bottom of a 13x9 in baking dish, pressing together at seams to seal. Place cooked meat on top of the crescent rolls. Beat the eggs and milk and set aside. Layer the hash browns over the meat and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
Step 2: Pour egg mixture over the hash brown. Top with shredded cheese. Bake at 375* for 30 minutes

The Way I Made it My Own:
I added a few things, and I think it made it much better than it would have been. I also didn't bake it as long.
