Saturday Morning Breakfast

We tried another new recipe this morning.    This one was for breakfast.... you keep me out of the McDonald's drive through at 8am Saturday morning.  Oh...the McGriddles...they call to me....

So.  We tried this recipe:

Bacon Egg and Cheese Ring

Course: NEW TO TRY
Serves: 4?  


  • 1 can crescent rolls
  • 5 large eggs; scrambled
  • 1 cup shredded Colby and Monterrey jack cheese
  • 8 slices cooked bacon can be precooked
  • 1 teaspoon season salt


  1. Heat oven to 375 degrees. Scramble eggs on stove top. 
  2. Lay out crescents on a parchment lined pizza pan in a star formation (the longer sides of each crescent on the inside with the pointed ends pointing out.)
  3. Place cooked bacon around the inside center of the ring. Top with about 1/3 of the cheese, scrambled eggs, season salt (or whatever seasoning you're using), and remaining cheese.
  4. Fold pointed tips of each crescent over the filling and join in the center of the ring. Press all the points in the center down to seal them together.
  5. Place in oven and bake for 15-17 minutes, or until golden brown. Slice in between each crescent to make 8 individual pieces.

Alterations:  I didn't use seasoning salt.  I just added a bit of salt and pepper to the scrambled eggs.
I used precooked bacon.   Next time I would "pre-crisp" the precooked bacon in the microwave before adding it.
I need to wrap the dough tighter, and try not to overlap in the middle on top, the rest was done, but that part was doughy. I just cut that part off.

The Verdict:  Yes!   We'll make it again...which is good, since I bought ingredients to make it next Saturday too ;)

The Mom:   Yum!
The Dad:  Delicious (said several times...and made known that this would be welcome on Saturday mornings  again soon)
The Picky Girl Child:  "I can't like it!"  picks up bit of bacon...let's fall from fingers...  pokes at it....eats a bite of bready part... refuses to even eat the eggs or cheese...which she loves.     She's not allowed to vote anymore.  OK, she is...but her vote will be weighted lightly.
