Mornings and I are not friends.

Period. 

In fact, it’s safe to say we do not get along at all.

This means breakfast can be a major struggle for me.

I love easy dishes like this that I can put together without all the work of making pancakes or making everyone their own eggs.

And my family loves it too!

The combination of salami, ham, peppers and onions pleases everyone, which means I get to start the day off with a bunch of happy boys.

How to Make

Making this breakfast bake is so easy!

To do it, start by heating olive oil over high heat in a large skillet.

Once the oil is hot, add the peppers and onions.

Cook them, stirring as needed, until the veggies are soft and the onions start to caramelize.

Then remove them from the heat and set aside.

Then, spray a 9×13 baking dish with non stick cooking spray.

Take the crescent rolls out of the tube and roll them out into the bottom of the sprayed dish, pressing any seams together.

Spread the ham and salami evenly on top of the layer of crescent rolls.

Now, beat the eggs in a small bowl and whisk the seasonings into the eggs.

Pour the beaten eggs evenly over the dish. Finish by topping with the veggies and the cheese.

Bake the breakfast casserole for 30 minutes at 350.

The eggs should be cooked all the way through and the cheese should have melted and begun to turn golden brown on top.

Remove the dish from the oven and let it rest for a few minutes before serving.

Enjoy!

Leftovers of this breakfast bake store very well.

Tips and Tricks

  • Want to add extra veggies? Go for it. Sautéed mushrooms would work really well in this.
  • For even more Italian flavor, press a clove or two of garlic into the veggies while you saute them.
  • Make sure you let the casserole cool for a few minutes prior to cutting it. It will set while cooling.
