Dahlia’s Breakfast Casserole

If I Speak True by Jessica BrooksDahlia’s Breakfast Casserole is a fantastic and easy breakfast that the whole family will love! Check out the recipe below and hear a little more about our Dahlia!

If I Speak True

Dahlia Kennedy’s sixteenth birthday marks a decade of mysterious dahlias arriving and strange, lonely dreams of being in a forest.

The only difference this birthday, however, is that for the first time, someone is there with her. And he’s practically from a whole other era. 

As secrets usually go, however, it’s only a matter of time before everything comes out. And when Dahlia finds out the truth of who Rowan is, who she is, and how he really feels — it’s beyond anything she could have ever imagined.

Book Recipe

Considering the fact that Dahlia’s cooking skills revolve mainly around eggs, I thought it would be fun to share a deleted scene from If I Speak True and share one of my own favorite breakfast recipes (that very well could be eaten for dinner).

This casserole is simple and easy to prepare (which Dahlia would appreciate–though I’m not sure she would do the best at cooking the sausage). I tried to find the original post that I used, but the blog has been shut down, so I’m going to give you my variation (but sadly, without a picture). But first, part of the deleted scene! J

And now, for Breakfast Casserole!!!

This super simple casserole could easily be prepped ahead of time! Just mix everything up and put in the fridge until your ready for it. Then all you’ll have to do is pour it on the rolls, bake and enjoy!

You could, of course, cook it ahead of time and freeze it as well! Freeze ahead meals are a win in my book! Try splitting it up into cupcake cups for individual servings! Perfect for busy mornings!

You will need:

  • 1 cup of milk
  • 2 cups (or more) of shredded cheese (we use Colby-Jack but you can use cheddar or whatever else you feel like using)
  • 1 can of crescent rolls
  • 1 lb. of Jimmy Dean HOT sausage (the original recipe called for Maple flavor, so that or regular sausage is an option, too)
  • 4 eggs



1) Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.

2) Roll out the crescent roll and cover entire bottom of your rectangular baking dish.

3) After cooking your sausage, drain; then pour it across the dough. Spread it out evenly.

4) In a separate mixing bowl, mix the milk and eggs.

5) Evenly pour the egg/milk mixture on top of the sausage.

6) Sprinkle cheese across the top (the thicker, the better, in my opinion).

7) Bake uncovered for about 20 minutes or until edges and center are bubbling and hot!

Thanks so much for having me, Kaycee! –J

    Breakfast bowls can be pricey, I would rather create this easy breakfast casserole. I can add different ingredients to alternate the recipe .

      I completely agree! Plus, the casseroles can be frozen in servings so we pretty much have breakfast ‘bowls’ ready to go when we do that!
