I absolutely love this Magical Crescent Roll Breakfast Casserole. Broccoli and all, especially broccoli combined with Parmesan and Cheddar cheese. The crescent roll crust is a real bonus, and I love the use of breakfast sausage. The great thing about this casserole is it's versatility. You can make it with whatever combination of ingredients you prefer. So go ahead and make it as written, or change it up to you liking, you can't lose with this recipe.

This looks so good! I love breakfast casseroles, especially during the winter.

Hmmm, ground beef sausage...is there such a thing? I love breakfast casseroles during the week when I barely have time to cook and the more veggies the better in my book so I'm looking forward to trying it with broccoli but, I think instead of using crescent rolls it might be more hearty and flavorful if hash browns were used as the crust instead.

I like broccoli but I don't usually think of it as a breakfast food. I'd be more inclined to use some chopped green pepper in place of the broccoli. Spinach would also be a good replacement. Some tomato would be nice, or I think I might serve this with some salsa and use some Mexican shredded cheese in place of the plain cheddar.

I love broccoli, but I'm not thrilled about broccoli in this recipe. I think I would like spinach instead. We love breakfast casseroles and crescent rolls make the recipes even easier.

Eating broccoli any time of the day would be unpleasant. But to start the day with it? Horrifying!!!!
