Sausage Ranch Breakfast Casserole

This dish is ideal for a crowd-size brunch. Prepare and refrigerate the casserole the night before, and in the morning, bake to perfection. —Bonnie Esslinger, Chapel Hill, TN

    We love ranch, sausage, and cream cheese! This was a quick breakfast for Christmas morning! Everyone loved it! I liked the crescent rolls instead of loaf bread like most breakfast casseroles.

    I agree that the Ranch flavor was too strong but even so, we had NO leftovers. Next time I will plan to use 1/2 the Ranch. I was also afraid it would be dry but it wasn't. Very tasty and quick recipe that I plan to add to our regulars list.

    The ranch dressing was overpowering. The next time I make this I will use 1/4 of the mix. Other than that it was a quick and easy recipe.

    I made this the other morning for my kids and it was a great hit. One of our kids is a picky eater and he stated that this went "WOW" in his mouth. I knew immediately this was a keeper recipe.
