Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Open up the crescent rolls and carefully lay out the whole sheet without tearing them apart. With a rolling pin, roll them out until they are one large rectangular sheet. Lightly spray the bottom of a deep, square baking pan and press the sheet down onto the bottom and slightly up the sides. Set aside.
  2. In a large saucepan, boil potatoes over high heat in salted water until a fork jabbed into them passes through them easily. Don't overcook them, though, as it will make your potatoes very watery and tasteless. Drain them and return them to the pan. Add 1/4 c butter, garlic, and grated onion and stir until the garlic and onion are translucent and have coated the potatoes. Add the milk and beat with a hand-mixer until you have lumpy mashed potatoes. Add salt and pepper to taste, and then spread over the dough in the baking dish. Set aside.
  3. In a skillet, saute the sausage, breaking it up and browning. When it's browned, remove from the skillet with a slotted spoon and set aside. Lower the heat to medium-low and add the cream, salt and pepper, stirring to pull up all the browned bits on the bottom of the skillet. Once it begins to thicken, add the cooked sausage to the skillet and stir. Remove from heat and set aside.
  4. In a large microwave-safe bowl, whisk together the eggs until they are well beaten. Drop 2 tbs butter into the middle of the bowl, cover tightly with plastic wrap, and cook in the microwave for 2 minutes. Peel back the plastic wrap and stir, scraping the cooked egg away from the side and stirring well. Re-cover and cook 2 more minutes. Peel back the plastic and stir. Repeat this process until the eggs are cooked and very fluffy. Remove from the microwave and stir up with a fork, breaking the eggs up into bite-sized chunks.
  5. Spoon the eggs over the mashed potatoes in an even layer. Spoon the sausage gravy over the eggs. Sprinkle the cheese over the whole dish and bake at 350 degrees for about 30 minutes.
