Here it Cross
1)Grease 9x13 glass pan
2)Line bottom and sides with a can of crescent rolls rolled out and flattened to make crust
3)Add 1 pound of ground, browned Jimmy Dean sausage (or your favorite brand/homemade) on top of the crescent rolls.
4) Pour in 10-12 scrambled eggs.
5) Put in oven at 350 for 45 minutes or until eggs are done. Don’t miss Step 6.
6)About 10 minutes before done, liberally add good quality shredded cheese. We use sharp cheddar.

Good when it’s hot. And almost as good warmed over. We eat it once a month or so for supper, not just breakfast.
By "pour in" do you mean crumble it in/spread it out on top of the dough?
(the JD sausage I get won't pour very well)
Fixed it for you

It's a good thing you did, because otherwise, I was just going to mix the uncooked sausage in with the eggs...

Well GB, I’m glad I saved you the trouble, but if you had added uncooked sausage that one would have been on you. Bc while I concede, (my poor choice of words) that you don’t “pour” sausage....my original instructions clearly stated “browned” :lol2: Try it. I will be surprised if you don’t like it.

Sounds good. Sounds like what we call a frittata. Sky's the limit on what you can add and its a good way to make use of extra eggs when the hens are in overdrive. We add either milk or heavy cream to the eggs and this makes a big difference in the texture. You may want to try adding either of these and see how you like it.

We usually make frittatas for supper and warm the leftovers for breakfast.
As Jo said...
whisk 5-6 eggs into 1 cup of cream or milk to make it more of a custard texture and you've got a quiche.

....canned yeast rolls, scrambled eggs, browned ground sausage, toped with shredded cheese. I ain’t much on casseroles for an entire meal (I view them more as a side)
If this is a side, I want to come to dine at your abode!

Easy Steve! I said I ain’t much on a casserole for an entire meal. My WIFE thinks they’re a perfectly fine meal by their self :lol2: Sometimes, if it’s a special occasion, we have casseroles as a side. Squash casserole is awesome with fried chicken, not so much if that’s all you got :bang:

I've never NOT liked a yellow crookneck squash dish.

Me too.
That and zucchini.
Walmart has a big bag of a veggie mix call Normandy blend.
It has squash, zucchini, carrots, broccoli, cauliflower, that might be it, all I can’t remember.
Fill up a cast iron skillet with it.
Drizzle some olive oil over the top and season with what you like.
Put it on the grill while you prep the meat.
By the time you get the meat done the veggies are ready.
It’s simple and really good

I made rice pudding with some leftover rice from the night before. First time in decades I had eaten any but I used blueberries instead of the usual raisins. The blueberries couldn't save it...just as nasty as I remember it being when I was a kid.

I will eat rice pudding. But biscuit pudding is better. And egg custard blows them both out of the water.

Is there any other kind? By definition custard is always made with egg.
if you omit the rice, do you have egg custard?

Rice pudding is also a custard.
combine 2 eggs with:
milk
rice
sugar
cook on stovetop till it thickens...
add fruit (optional)
stick it in the oven in a shallow dish
dust with brown sugar and/or nutmeg
