Sausage & Egg Squares

Similar to quiche, this dish is a great alternative when serving a group of people. This can be made ahead and reheated for a quick weekday morning meal. Serve with a dollop of sour cream or salsa for an extra decadent treat.

This recipe is somewhat flat, almost frittata-like. The casserole sits on a base of crescent rolls, almost like a breakfast pizza, and the sausage and cheese hold it all together. Today I used pepperjack cheese, but I usually use cheddar or monterrey jack. I’ve used bacon instead of sausage before, too – just do what you like, you can’t really mess this up. We always save the extras and keep them in the refrigerator for a few days – this makes a great on-the-go breakfast.
