That’s why I love my Keurig Brewer for making a fresh cup of coffee for everyone and also why I love my slow cooker for making and keeping breakfast warm for hours! Leaves me free to sit and chat, work on other meals, go for a run or just relax! I’ve made this Slow Cooker Easy Breakfast Casserole too many times to count. It’s simple, easy and always a hit.

  • Skillet
  • Slow Cooker


  • 12 refrigerated crescent roll sheets
  • 1/2 pound ground sausage
  • 6 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon milk
  • 1 cup shredded cheese
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • pinch ground black pepper


  • Brown sausage in skillet over medium-high heat until fully cooked, drain any grease
  • Spray slow cooker insert with non-stick spray
  • Unroll crescent rolls into a sheet and lay in bottom of slow cooker, pressing seams together
  • Whisk together egg, milk, salt and pepper
  • Pour over rolls
  • Top with cooked sausage
  • Top with cheese
  • Cover and cook on high for 2-3 hours or low for 4-6


  • Prep ahead by browning sausage and storing in the fridge until ready to assemble the casserole.
  • Store leftovers in the fridge for up to 3 days in a sealed container. To freeze leftovers, wrap tightly or seal individual servings in a container. Freeze for up to 3 months.
  • Reheat individual servings in the microwave for 30-60 second increments or in the oven until just warmed through.
  • I made this in my casserole-sized slow cooker on high for 2.5 hours. In my 6-quart oval slow cooker, it took slightly longer at about 3 hours.

  1. Could you add hashbrowns to this recipe? For example, can you add it on top of the crescent dough then add the other ingredients?

  2. 5 stars
    This sounds amazing, and I am so ready to try! Is there a reason why you opted for frozen spinach and not fresh?
    It was delicious and will definitely make this again. We are going to try your Italian Chicken crockpot meal next!

  3. Hello!
    I have a couple of questions…… Can I substitute the sausage for bacon? Also, can I put the ingredients together the night before & bake the next morning in my electric crock pot 9×13 casserole baker (not sure of the proper name.)
    Thank you in advance!

  4. You mentioned that this could be made in the oven. At what temperature should it be and for how long?. Thanks! This looks like would be good and easy, too!

    1. I can’t remember how long I cooked it in the oven, but I would start by following the temp & time on the crescent roll package. Then check to be sure the crust is lightly browned and that when you stick a knife in the center of the eggs that they are set.

  5. Can you tell me what the cresent roll looks like, please? Is it an already cooked type of bread? I’ m i UK and I have no idea what an equivalent product would be over here. I would like to try the recipe when the family come over next weekend. Yhanks Jenny P

    1. They are similar to refrigerated biscuits that are prepared dough in a can that you then bake. If you can’t find them you could make a homemade croissant dough or a biscuit dough would work also.
