I love making special breakfasts for special occasions. Birthdays, holidays or really, just because. When I was brainstorming this post, I settled on croissants for a couple of reasons.

One, I had a box of croissants from the store that I needed to use up and they would add so much flavor since they are so buttery.

Two, we were heading out of town and I wanted to use them up before leaving. I know, I could have frozen them but then I might not have made this wonderful maple sausage croissant breakfast casserole.

Ingredients for Maple Sausage Croissant Breakfast Casserole

  • Croissants
  • Ground Pork Sausage
  • Onion
  • Cheddar Cheese
  • Maple Syrup
  • Eggs
  • Butter
  • Half and Half

Shredded Cabot cheese.

You may be wondering about the cheese and why I didn’t buy pre-shredded cheese. For starters, I like Cabot cheese. It’s creamy, shreds well, and melts beautifully.

Pre-shredded cheeses have an anti-caking additive that prevents it from melting well. That’s why I always recommend shredding your own cheese off of a block.

If you can find maple sausage feel free to use it. That was my original thought but when I couldn’t find it I improvised.

The maple was very subtle. There are so many layers of flavor. Your family and guests are sure to feel special.

Why We Love This Recipe

  • A great way to use up croissants.
  • Full of flavor.
  • Super easy.
  • Easily scaled for more or fewer people.
  • Assemble it the night before and bake it off in the morning.

Maple Sausage Croissant Casserole is a delicious way to wake up any morning.

This breakfast casserole would be delightful to serve for an Easter or Mother’s Day brunch, holiday gathering, or just because it’s Sunday.

Dad will feel extra special when you make this breakfast casserole for Father’s Day!
