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.
