I made this on Sunday for a banquet for my sorority and it was absolutely delicious! My roommates and sisters raved about it. It tasted almost just like McDonald's sausage and egg biscuit. The only thing I would do differently next time is cut back on the butter (or maybe water until it came out of the oven to pour it on). It made the crescent rolls too doughy and I had to cook the casserole longer than I would have liked to make sure the top crust got cooked completely. Otherwise, it was terrific and I will definitely be making again!

I think to add a few hash browns and maybe peppers and onions would be good on this too. I have seen breakfast pizzas similar to this.

Yes--deliicious but cut back on the butter (maybe half as much).

I made this morning with a few changes. I used maple sausage(what I had on hand) and pepper jack along with the cheddar cheese. I used about half the butter and cooked 4-5 minutes longer. I omitted the sesame seeds. It was a hit with my family.

This morning I attempted this. The egg was completely runny as soon as I cut into it, and the underside of the top crescent roll dough was not even close to being done.

Not sure what I did wrong, but it was a waste of ingredients :(

I have made this twice. The first time by directions, but 10 min & 10 min is not long enough. I added another 10 min & it come out great! Second time I added japs, onions and Canadian bacon. Oh & lots more cheese. I agree with less butter!
