Breakfast Saturday: Bacon, Egg, and Cheese Crescent Rolls

Good morning foodies! Welcome to our Saturday Edition of The Tasteful Texan! This morning we will be making scrumptious bacon, egg, and cheese crescent rolls. This recipe is from Pillsbury. Speaking of which, my family is gaga over warm, flaky Pillsbury biscuits. Yum yum! It just seemed natural that we should do a breakfast recipe from Pillsbury.

This is one of those super easy, done in 30 minutes, bring-your-kids-to-help-out sort of recipes. The end result will have your little ones asking for more, I assure you. When my household makes recipes like this, all 3 men come running. These would fly off our counters in a millisecond. No joke. We here take breakfast very seriously. It's normal for us to eat breakfast for dinner at least 2 to 3 times a week. Anyway, I'm getting off course. Why don't you meet me in the kitchen and we can start making breakfast? I'll see you there!

Bacon, Egg, and Cheese Crescent Rolls
Makes 8 Servings

You will need:

  • 1 can (8 ounces) Pillsbury® refrigerated crescent dinner rolls
  • 8 slices bacon, crisply cooked, crumbled
  • 4 eggs, scrambled
  • 1/2 cup finely shredded Cheddar cheese
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 tablespoon cracked black pepper


  1. Scramble the eggs in a hot pan (or alternately, in a medium microwavable bowl, microwave uncovered on High 1.5 minutes. Stir the cooked outer edges of the eggs to the center. Microwave 1 to 2 minutes longer or until the eggs are almost set but still moist.)
  2. Meanwhile, fry the bacon as you normally would. 
  3. When the bacon is done, crumble in a food processor until just broken up.
  4. Heat the oven to 350 degrees. 
  5. Unroll the dough onto a work surface, and separate into triangles.
  6. Top each triangle with bacon, scrambled egg and cheese. 
  7. Roll up the triangles loosely. 
  8. Place triangles on an ungreased cookie sheet, and gently curve the rolled up triangles into crescent shape. 
  9. Brush with the beaten egg, and sprinkle with pepper.
  10. Bake for 18 to 20 minutes or until golden brown.
  11. Enjoy!

I'll be back again tomorrow with another recipe, but until then, have a great day and Happy Blogging to all!
