Sometimes, you just want breakfast for dinner.
I cut a few ingredients out from the original recipe (which you can get by clicking the link below) to make this a little more basic. I wasn't in the mood for peppers and onions and mushrooms and all that...I just wanted eggs, cheese and sausage gravy. And we all loved it.
How can you not? Eggs, cheese and sausage gravy spread all over flaky crescent rolls? Yeah...I'll take it!
This is super easy to make (especially if you're lazy like me and get the pre-cooked sausage crumbles, but feel free to get bulk sausage and cook it up if you prefer that) and is a hassle-free dinner. Jesse loves eggs and crescent rolls, so it was one of those rare meals where I didn't have to bargain with him or yell at him to eat his dinner. He just did.
Ok guys, if you're in New England, try and enjoy this rainy miserable day (at least the damn snow is melting!), and if you're somewhere sunny and warm, well...piss off!

'Breakfast Pizza for Dinner'
Source: Adapted from Taste of Home
2 packages crescent rolls
1 package Jimmy Dean cooked sausage crumbles
1 envelope country gravy mix
2 tablespoons milk
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 tablespoon butter
8 oz shredded cheddar cheese
4 oz shredded pepper Jack cheese
1. Heat oven to 375. Separate crescent dough into 16 triangles and place on a greased, round pizza pan with points toward the center. Press onto the bottom and up the sides of pan to form a crust; seal seams. Bake for 11-13 minutes or until golden brown.
2. Meanwhile, prepare gravy according to package directions in a medium saucepan. Stir sausage crumbles into thickened gravy; set aside.
3. In a small bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, salt and pepper. In a large skillet, heat butter over medium heat. Add egg mixture; cook and stir until almost set.
4. Spread sausage gravy mixture over the crust. Top with eggs and cheeses. Bake 5-10 minutes longer or until eggs are set and cheese is melted. Cut into wedges.
