What was for dinner???

I tried a new recipe from the blog called Live.Love.Eat. She has such great recipes!!! Check her blog out. She provides such pretty pictures too!

We had the Sausage, Potato, and Egg Torta.


1 1/2 lbs sausage
1 1/2 lbs hash browns
2 tblspns vegetable oil
1/2 cup each - chopped scallions, green & red pepper
10 eggs beaten
1/2 cup milk
1/2 tsp dry mustard
1/2 tsp black pepper
1 tube crescent rolls
2 1/2 cups grated cheddar

Fry sausage until browned, drain well & set aside. Fry potatoes in oil for a few minutes, add scallions & bell peppers. Fry until tender. Combine eggs, milk, mustard & black pepper, whisk well & set aside. Grease 9x13 casserole dish. Line it with crescent rolls overlapping just slightly. Layer meat, potatoes & then cheese. Pour egg mixture over the top & sprinkle with paprika. Bake at 350 for 30-35 minutes. Check after 30 minutes to account for oven heat variations. You don't want to overcook your eggs.

I used the hashbrowns that already had the peppers in them...and only used 1 bag..20 turned out great.

It was so yummy! Perfect for taking to those breakfast get togethers or for guests...we had it for dinner.

I have several breakfast casserole recipes and they are always sooo good! We traditionally always have one on Christmas morning before we open our gifts. My kids are all grown now, but they still expect to have that every year!

This recipe sounds delicious! I love crescent rolls and hash browns - so this one's "got my name on it"! I will definitely be giving this a try!
