Breakfast Casserole

My sister had been raving about this recipe that she got from her friend for awhile I was lucky enough to get a chance to taste it in person when we visited her. It was every bit as delish as she claimed and I was equally impressed with how easy it was to make.

1 can crescent rolls
1 lb bacon
8 oz cheddar cheese
1/2 C milk
8 eggs
1/2 tsp oregano
Salt and Pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 350. Lightly grease 9x13-inch pan. Press crescent rolls in bottom (don't separate rolls). Cook the bacon (maybe I'm just behind the times, but I didn't know that you could microwave bacon. It was life changing for me. No more splattered grease and burnt bacon. Just microwave on a paper towel for 40 seconds PER SLICE); crumble then sprinkle over rolls followed by the cheese. Mix milk, eggs, oregano, salt & pepper to taste; pour over cheese. Bake 25-30 minutes.

Thanks for getting this posted. I kept forgeting to tell you but I tried to go in and add the thing about the bacon but it wouldn't let me edit it. Sorry. You actually want to cook the bacon in a glass dish, otherwise you'll end up with grease all over the microwave. I just use my rectangle pan that's just smaller then my 9X13 - sorry I don't know what size it is. You do want to cover it with a paper towel though. Glad you liked it!

Really? I must be just a lame cook. I've never NOT microwaved bacon. I even buy the precooked! :) Thanks for sharing this recipe. I'm going to make it for Christmas morning.

I've had this made with ham instead of bacon and hash browns instead of the crescent rolls. It was really good!
