Supreme Breakfast Casserole: Wal-lah!

Not to toot my own horn, but I made my first breakfast casserole......and it was the bomb-diggity. Coming up the with recipe was easy. The hard part was waiting for 1.5 days in agonizing anticipation to test taste my masterpiece of a creation.
All this bragging, and Patrick didn't even get to try a single bite, since it was devoured during the meeting I brought it to.......Oh well, guess I'll just have to make it again!

Supreme Breakfast Casserole

1 can Big and Flaky Croissant Rolls
1 package HOT Jimmy Dean Breakfast Sausage
9 Eggs
1 1/2 cup Heavy Whipping Cream
2 cups Spinach and Arugula Mix
3 large Red Potatoes
1 lb Bacon
Shredded Mexican Cheese
Feta Cheese Crumbles

Heat oven to 350 degrees F. 
Spray cooking dish with non-stick cooking spray and cover with croissant dough, pinching together the perforated lines. 
In skillet (I used my cast iron because it's the best), cook sausage (I seasoned lightly with Montreal Seasoning), then evenly spread over croissant dough.
In bowl, whisk together eggs and heavy whipping cream, then add spinach and arugula mix. Pour over sausage. 
Cook bacon (in same skillet used for the sausage) until crispy, then set aside on paper towels to cool.
Heat red potatoes in microwave until partially soft, dice (leave skin on).
Spoon most of bacon grease out of skillet (leaving enough to cover base of pan), then cook potatoes in same skillet on medium high until crispy (season with Montreal Seasoning). Do not stir too often or they will fall apart. 
When potatoes are crispy, evenly scatter them over the eggs mixture, then cover with Mexican Cheese. 
Place casserole in oven for about 45 minutes (or until middle SLIGHTLY jiggly. It will be moist due to the cream added to the eggs). 
Crumble the bacon and scatter over the casserole, then add desired amount of feta cheese and fresh chives.
Place back in oven for few minutes to warm topping. 
I served this with my home-made white girl salsa. Seriously, you're already in the kitchen; it's worth it to throw in the extra effort. 

White Girl Salsa: 

Roma Tomatoes
Yellow Onion
Lime Juice
Garlic Powder
Onion Powder
Black Pepper

Chop even parts tomatoes and tomatillos in food processor to desired consistency, then place in bowl. 
Chop half that amount of yellow onion and cilantro in food processor to desired consistency, then add to same bowl. 
Chop desired amount of jalapeno (including seeds) in food processor (depending on the spice factor of your peppers), then add to same bowl. 
Season to taste with lime juice, garlic powder, onion powder and pepper. 

And you know I had to make homemade chips for my salsa........but I didn't share those
