Cheesy Sausage Breakfast Casserole

1 roll crescent rolls ( I used the Pilsbury Big and Buttery 50% larger than the normal rolls-they work so much better!)
12 oz roll of sausage-cooked and crumbled
2 cups Colby/Monterey Jack cheese
5 eggs slightly beaten
3/4 cup milk
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon basil
1/8 teaspoon pepper

Preheat over to 350*. Grease bottom of 9X13 baking dish. Unroll crescent roll dough, and press into bottom of dish (pushing dough 1/2 to 1 inch up sides of dish). Spread sausage over crust. Sprinkle with cheese. Mix egg, milk, salt, basil, and pepper together, and pour over cheese layer. Bake at 350* until eggs have set and puffed up a little.

This recipe is GREAT! I have made several different versions of this casserole and so far this is my favorite! Every time I make it for a shower, brunch, or for guests, I get so many compliments! BUT....all the credit goes to my hubby's Aunt Cathy. I did get the recipe from her! Enjoy!
