One Manly Breakfast...Coming Right Up!

Here it is, finally, the first post in the Man Room!

This whole section is dedicated to men and their manliness; brought to you directly from the man of my homestead...my husband Cam! :-) Here goes nothing...

"This is truly a man's breakfast: warm, hearty, meaty, and cheesy. It's simple enough for us to be able to throw together without help from the women of the house. Great to fill you up and get you set for a day fishing, hunting, boating, or just lounging.

Breakfast Casserole

1 can crescent roll dough
1 lb. uncooked sausage
onion (as many or as few as you like)
red pepper flakes (as much as you can stand)
4 eggs
3/4 c. milk
1 -1 1/2 c. shredded cheese (I prefer cheddar)

Toppings: sour cream

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Grease a 13x9 pan with cooking spray...or better yet, bacon grease if you've got it!
In a large skillet, brown your sausage and onions until done. (At this point, my wife would tell me to drain off some of the excess fat that has cooked out, so if you would like, feel free to do so at this time. I, however, am a firm believer that that's where the bulk of the flavor lies, so I don't drain it!) Remove from heat, stir in red pepper flakes to your liking, salt and pepper.

Open the can of crescent rolls, unroll them, and place them over the bottom of your pan. Pinch the seams together to create a nice 'crust'.

Next, to the dough top with your meat and onion mixture.

After that, in another bowl, beat your egg and milk together until good and mixed. Pour the egg and milk mixture on top of your sausage in the pan (a). Top with all of the cheese (b).

Bake this for 20-25 minutes, or until both the cheese and crust are golden brown. Remove from the oven and let sit for about 5 minutes if you can wait.

Slice yourself a healthy portion of this. I enjoy mine with a big dollop of sour cream and lots of Tabasco.

Now, that's a man's breakfast!"


  1. What a remarkable idea. I will suggest it to my men. Sounds delicious.

  2. It will not dissapoint! You can use buiscuits instead of crescent rolls...the outcome will be equally delicious!
