Bacon Egg and Cheese Crescent Roll
My husband and I both like breakfast foods. But we really only get to enjoy them on the weekends. Usually, it's some form of eggs, breakfast sandwiches or an occasional quiche. I like trying new breakfast recipes. This one combines our favorites - bacon, eggs and cheese, all wrapped up in a crescent roll. And it couldn't be easier. I found the recipe via Pinterest here.
1 can of crescent rolls
5 eggs, scrambled
1 cup of shredded Monterrey Jack cheese
5-8 slices of cooked bacon (I used turkey bacon)
Salt and pepper to taste
1. Heat oven to 375 degrees. Scramble eggs on stove top. Lay out crescent roll dough in a star formation, on a parchment lined baking sheet (the longer sides of each crescent on the inside with the pointed ends pointing out.)
2. Place cooked bacon around the inside center of the ring. Top with about 1/3 of the cheese, scrambled eggs, salt and pepper, and remaining cheese.
3. Fold pointed tips of each crescent over the filling and join in the center. Press points together to seal.
4. Place in oven and bake for 15-17 minutes, or until golden brown. Slice in between each crescent to make 8 individual pieces.
This breakfast was so delicious, even reheated the next day. It's perfect for a brunch or a lazy Sunday afternoon. Enjoy!
