heavenly breakfast goodness

This week I have been in the cooking/baking mood! After seeing all of these yummmmy pictures of food on Pinterest, I decided I wanted to make something. But of course Kate and I couldn't eat it all by ourselves... so I made up some breakfast and brought it to work! Here's what I made:

Breakfast Casserole
1 can crescent rolls
1 lb. ground sausage
1 medium onion
1 bag shredded cheese
6-12 eggs (however many you want to use)

Spray 9x13 pan with cooking spray
Lay crescent rolls in the bottom of the pan, completely covering the bottom.
Brown the sausage and add as much chopped onion as you like.
Let the sausage mixture cool just a few minutes, then spread it out over the crescent rolls.
Sprinkle cheese all over sausage mixture.
In a separate bowl, beat eggs and add a splash of milk and salt & pepper.
Pour the egg mixture over the sausage/cheese.
At this point, you can either bake it at 350° F for about 25 minutes. OR you can put a lid on it and put it in the fridge if you want to make this the night before. Then all you have to do is wake up and pop it in the oven in the morning. (that's what I did!)

Fat Cakes (also known as Sopapilla Cheesecake)
3 cans crescent rolls
2 (8 oz) pkg cream cheese (softened)
1 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 cup butter
Cinnamon/sugar to taste

Unroll and spread 1 1/2 can crescent rolls on bottom of un-greased pan. 
Combine softened cream cheese, sugar, and vanilla. 
Spread mixture over crescent rolls. 
Unroll and spread remaining crescent rolls over mixture. 
Pour melted butter over the top and sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar. 
Bake at 350 degrees for 20-30 minutes OR cover and store in fridge overnight then bake in the morning.

I brought both of these in this morning, got it all set up in the work room, and I left for about 5 minutes. When I returned, this is what I found...
So... I guess my co-workers like it? Ha! :)

Hope you all enjoy the recipes! They are easy, inexpensive & super yummy!
