Sausage and Hashbrown Breakfast Pizza
Total TimePrep: 10 min. Bake: 30 min. + standing
Can you use a different pan,I dont have a pizza pan, thanks
Just okay. Dry finished breakfast. Don’t recommend.
I used a pizza crust, because it was what I had on hand; re-baked it for about 7 minutes. For ease and speed of preparation, I used Jimmy Dean pre-cooked turkey sausage crumbles. And to speed up the baking time, I scrambled the eggs and topped the pizza with them. Baked for about 8 minutes and it was delicious!
This was a LOT of sausage at 1 lb. I reduced that to 1/2 lb and upped the cheese to 1 1/2 cups. Also the crescent rolls were too small for a 12 inch pizza pan. The egg mixture rolled right off--although maybe it was supposed to do that?? Next time I will use a smaller pizza pan or a small round pie plate pan so I have enough crescent roll dough to form an "edge" to keep the egg mixture in. Taste wise it was great and even my VERY fussy teenager son liked it and asked for 2nd helping.
I had a couple issues with the recipe but mostly it turned out pretty well and tasted yummy. I'm not sure what kind of sausage or cheese mindydecker used, but I used Jimmy Dean All Natural Regular pork sausage that has plenty of spices in it already. The many cheese also provide lots of flavor. Instead of shredded hash browns, I used cubed, and "thawed" it by cooking it with the sausage 5-10 minutes before it was done. The potatoes used the excess oil from the sausage to cook, so I didn't need to drain anything. My main issue was the length of time. Despite cooking it for only 25 minutes, the outer edges were nearly burnt. The inside tasted absolutely fine though. While it definitely tasted yummy as a dinner, I feel like it might not taste quite as good as leftovers (which is common for crescent rolls). So burnt edges and not-so-great leftovers makes this a 4 star.
Not happy that when you try to print you cannot get recipe and directions both,,the different tabs are also a pain while you are cooking and your hands are messy
My family loved it
I have made this recipe several times. My husband and I love it, as well as my 4 year old niece. I have also taken it to church brunch that we have once a month, and had requests to make it again next time. I follow the directions exactly, and either use Jimmy Dean's hot sausage (which isn't hot at all, and I can't take anything spicy), or our favorite is the bacon version. Just a wonderful recipe!
My teenagers wouldn't want this one again. I am trying another recipe because it was pretty dry and it's missing spices. It would be great for someone who cannot have spicy food or small children. Not so much for adult taste buds.
