I have lived most of my adult life in Iowa but grew up in Chicago.¬† ¬†Although I sometimes miss ” Chicago food”, one dish that Iowans do right, every time is breakfast casserole.¬† ¬†It doesn’t matter if the breakfast casserole has sausage or bacon, cheese or no cheese, it doesn’t matter if it is spicy or just a little salty.¬† I will always welcome breakfast casserole with open arms, or more appropriately, an open mouth.

Another thing that I love about breakfast casserole, is that my family will also eat it for lunch or dinner.  Many breakfast casseroles require you to soak bread in the egg mixture for several hours, but not this breakfast casserole.  Many breakfast casserole recipes have a bake-time of 40 minutes to an hour, but not this breakfast casserole.  This is so perfect for me to make when my family visits!   Sometimes family visits can get crazy, and I forget to prep something for breakfast.  I love how easy this is!

I decided to take a chance, to try breakfast casserole in my Pressure cooker.¬† My husband actually suggested that I use this cooking method because it is fast and easy.¬† To my delight, the crescent rolls turned out flaky and delicious!¬† Plus, I threw this breakfast casserole together in a matter of minutes.¬† My family loves¬†Pillsbury‚ĄĘ Refrigerated Original Crescent Rolls, they’re so flaky, buttery and they taste so good!¬† Right now,¬†Pillsbury‚ĄĘ Refrigerated Original Crescent Rolls, are now available at Walmart, for all of your Easter brunch needs ūüôā

I couldn’t believe how well these crescent¬†rolls cooked in my pressure cooker.¬† I am so glad I gave this cooking method a try, the crescent rolls were amazingly perfect and my kids loved this dish.¬† ¬†To show you how easy this is to make, I have put together a video for you!


This meal is actually so perfect for us.  With three young boys, hosting guests for the holidays can be stressful at times.  Making breakfast casserole this way is incredibly easy and this was such a crowd pleaser!   This is the perfect brunch recipe for any busy person, but especially for those of us who have small children, this is great!

I made this brunch recipe simple.   However, I think this cooking method will work with a variety of flavors.   I think the most important thing to remember, when making this breakfast casserole in your pressure cooker is to remember to spray the bottom of the pan.  You want to be able to cut pieces of this casserole, and thus be able to get it out smoothly.
