Recipe of the Week - Sausage Pomodoro Brunch Egg Bake

Time for the Tuesday Recipe Link up! I am linking up with Tasty Tuesdays, In and Out of the Kitchen, and Taste of Tuesday!  

 We had a lot of fun cooking up a lot of different meals this past weekend.Usually we split meals, and it is always fun deciding what to make. I made this egg bake for L & J about two years ago or so and we all really liked it and it has become a regular favorite. 
This time used turkey breakfast sausage. Brown it and add a bottle of pesto (I do this to taste, not usually the whole jar, and if you have frozen some, even better). 

While the sausage is browning, press a container of crescent rolls into a glass baking dish. I use the sheet instead of the triangles. I also use a square pan instead of a rectangular. This makes it more deep dish, but I usually do two squares instead of one rectangle.

This recipe calls for a jar of canned tomatoes. I absolutely love Muir Glen fire roasted, so much flavor, make sure you drain them.

The recipe calls for 6 eggs, we used 9. Don't ask, but we did have to cook it longer. Whip the eggs with the milk, add seasonings to taste.

Layer the sausage, tomatoes, cheeses.

Mozzarella and Feta, num. L & J aren't crazy about feta, but it totally works in this recipe!

Pour egg mixture on top. And bake!

We were hungry and seriously cut in and dished it up so fast!

Try this one out. Put it on your list. Feed it to friends, family, neighbors. It is delicious!
