INGREDIENTS

  • Crescent rolls – I used Pillsbury.
  • Ground turkey – I used 99% fat free ground turkey to keep this dish lighter. Feel free to use any ground turkey, chicken, or crumbled sausage.
  • Country gravy mix – I used McCormick’s sausage flavored country gravy.
  • Shredded cheese – I used reduced-fat Colby Jack here, but any shredded cheese will be yummy.

HOW TO MAKE THIS SAUSAGE GRAVY BREAKFAST CASSEROLE

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a 9×13” baking dish with nonstick cooking spray. 
  2. For the Egg White Pizza: Open crescent rolls and place along the bottom of the dish. Press down to spread and even out along the bottom and part of the sides of the dish. Try to seal the seams as much as possible.
  3. Shake egg white carton up and pour slowly over the crescent roll dough. Sprinkle with ranch seasoning mix and bake for 18-20 minutes, or until egg whites are cooked throughout. 
  4. For the Turkey: In a large skillet, add the ground turkey. Cook on medium heat until no longer pink, breaking into smaller pieces with a wooden spoon as you go. 
  5. For the Sausage Gravy: Meanwhile, prepare the country gravy according to package directions. I did this in the microwave. 
  6. Assembly: Mix the ground turkey and sausage gravy together, then add evenly on top of the egg white pizza. Sprinkle it with cheese. 
  7. Bake for 5 minutes or until the cheese has melted. Take out, let cool for 5-10 minutes and enjoy!

  1. Learn to make real sausage gravy. Also, ranch seasoning in biscuits and gravy??? Eww. Alllllso, stop the false advertising “only 4 ingredients” no lady I count 10, and two of them are premade mixes. Bet you make a 2 ingredient clam chowder, milk and a can of campbells condensed soup.

    • Rude, no need to say any of these things to her, if you don’t like the recipe move on. Thank you Lauren for sharing this recipe our family loved it!

  3. Let me start by saying, I hate eggs. BUT, this egg bake is amazing! The egg whites totally take a back seat and the sausage and gravy steal the show! I’ve made it three times now and it the leftovers heat up perfectly in the microwave so I have yummy breakfast for the whole week!
