Crescent rolls are not a thing here in Africa but my improv proved to be ok although it next time it needs a little tweaking. The dish was really good though and everyone seemed to enjoy it. I left out the broccoli because our breakfast was quite early and I added a little emmentaler cheese because we had some. Definitely good enough to have again and it is quite quite and easy to make.

I love breakfast casseroles and this is one that's quite similar to ones I've made before. The use of crescent rolls is a nice change from the hash brown crust I normally use. When I've made these before, I've used spinach in place of broccoli, but I should try it this way the next time I make it. I also use a mix of cheddar and jack cheese. The Parmesan is a nice touch and I'll have to try that too.

Crescent casseroles are easy to make and delicious! I don't have any crescent recipes with broccoli, so I will make this as a dinner casserole. I love broccoli, but my family is not such a big fan. I hope they will like this recipe as much as I will.
