Bacon Egg and Cheese Ring



I came across this recipe on Pinterest, and I just had to make it. Scrambled eggs, bacon, cheese, and crescent rolls?! Yes please! Everyone in this house loved it. It's basically your entire breakfast rolled into one handy bite-sized wedge!

This is another dish that you can really do a lot with. In place of bacon, maybe sprinkle some sausage. If you like your eggs to have a kick, drizzle some Tabasco over the eggs. Green onions, chives, or some chopped tomatoes and green chilies for a Tex-Mex Egg Ring (hmmm....that actually sounds pretty good). I added season salt (called Pop-Pop salt in this house because my Grandfather ALWAYS sprinkled it on his eggs...I didn't learn that Pop-Pop salt was actually just season salt till I was about 16. Seriously.), but you can add any seasoning you prefer, even just salt and pepper. The possibilities for this are endless!

Well, I hope you all had a safe and exciting New Years Eve, and I look forward to all that 2012 has to offer. We celebrated our last Thanksgiving and Christmas in this house, and are planning another military move later this year (fingers crossed for Groton, CT!!) where Heath will do his submarine XO tour. I'm ready...I tend to tire of a place quickly, so leaving Charleston is ok with me! Best wishes to all my friends and family in 2012! Can't wait to see what the year holds for everyone :)

'Bacon Egg and Cheese Ring'

Ingredients

1 can of crescent rolls
5 large eggs; scrambled
1 cup of shredded Colby and Monterrey jack cheese
8 slices of cooked bacon (I bought the pre-cooked stuff)
1 teaspoon of season salt

Directions

1. Heat oven to 375 degrees. Scramble eggs on stove top. 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.)

2. 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.

3. 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.

4. Place in oven and bake for 15-17 minutes, or until golden brown. Slice in between each crescent to make 8 individual pieces.

  5. THIS SOUNDS ABSLUTELY WONDERFUL. I DON'T KNOW IF YOU ARE AWARE, BUT SOMEONE HAS TOLD PINTEREST THAT THIS POST IS SPAM OR INAPPROPRIATE. PLEASE LET THEM KNOW IT ISN'T. I CLICKED ON THE LINK THAT SAID "SHOW ME ANYWAY" TO GET HERE. SOME PEOPLE ARE SO STUPID, SIGH. I DON'T UNDERSTAND WHY THEY DID THAT TO YOUR POST.

  6. Thank you for letting me know! I was not aware of that. That's now the second time I've heard that someone has had an issue getting to a post of mine, and I didn't understand why. Somewhere along the line I must have pissed someone off cause I think they marked a bunch of my posts as spam. I'll let Pinterest know...thank you!

    1. I was just on pinterest and clicked on what I thought was your post. It took me to a different website where I could read a little bit of what you said (exact words) then something popped up saying I had a virus. I reported that one but it had the same picture and your words on a different web address.

    2. Hmmmm, well...that sucks. I googled a recipe of mine a few weeks ago, and one of the links took me to some site that had my picture and basically my entire post, but wasn't my page (I can't remember the recipe, but it wasn't this one). I've kind of taken the attitude of 'There's nothing I can do about it' since the web is so vast and there are so many scammers out there. I've also learned that tons of spammers are on Pinterest marking legit pins as Spam, then copying their content and posting it on their own spam sites...sometimes, I hate the Internet. Sorry you got sent somewhere questionable from one of my pics :(

  7. My husband and I tried this tonight...and loved it! I too am a Navy wife so it made it that much better that I was borrowing this from a fellow military wife. Thanks again and your subsitutes will make an appearance in our next go at this.

  8. The spam issue on pinterest usually involves a spammer stealing the photo from your original post and then changing the link. It seems that when someone reports the photo as spam, it does it to all of those photos, whether the link is spam or to an original post like this one. A glitch I hope they can solve soon...the spam has unfortunately really taken off over there. :(

  9. This is Mindie from Bacon Time! Glad you like my recipe. Yes the wreaths are very versatile, I have made several different ones, always easy, always good. I host a weekly Anything Goes linky, it runs every Friday morning through Monday. Please come link up if you like. Have a wonderful day.

  10. I have used this and filled with taco seasoned meat and cheese, served with sour cream, guacamole, shredded lettuce and tomatoes!

  11. Mindie, I LOVE this recipe! I make it at least twice a month...it's the perfect weekend breakfast! Sweettweets, I never even thought of adapting it for a lunch or dinner recipe, that sounds wonderful!

  12. I would have to try this. Thanks for sharing. Lots of ideas to tweak it too.

  13. If I'm picturing this correctly, is there a blank spot of parchment in the middle where you put your eggs?

    ReplyDelete
  14. Not quite Sue...there is a blank spot of parchment in the middle, but nothing goes there. If you clink on the link under the recipe title, where it says "Source"...'Bacon Time With the Hungry Hungry Hippo' has a great picture tutorial, so you can see step-by-step how to assemble this :)

  15. I am w/you Mercedes. Mine didn't turn out as pretty that is for sure! I turn the crescent rolls to have the points turning in which filled in the middle and left the larger end to roll over. I used sausage instead of bacon which of course made it less attractive because of the little pieces spilling out. Family loved it and we have left overs for tomorrow!

  16. I'm making this for breakfast this morning. Thanks for sharing!

  17. I made mine this morning and used pre cooked turkey bacon and reduced fat crescent rolls and it came out fantastic! I did the math and with the way I made it, 1/8th is a bout 208 calories. Thanks for the great recipe!

  18. I want to make this and freeze it or at least be able to refrigerate for a week (boys at school). Can this be reheated in the micro? Have you tried it reheated in the micro and for how long? Does it get soggy? Just wondering :)
    I'm making this tomorrow morning as a test run before my kids go back to school. They go to a boarding school where the food is less than stellar.

  19. I've never tried freezing this. I'm not sure how well this would re-heat. It's been my experience that crescent rolls don't reheat very well (they get mushy), and I've never been a fan of re-heated eggs. You can always try it though!

    If you do, you may want to use one of the small tubes of crescent rolls (with only 4 rolls), and make a mini-ring (I make a mini one whenever I really want this but I'm the only one eating it). That way if it doesn't work out, you won't be wasting as much.

  20. Making this tonight for dinner! Thank you for the recipe!!! Most of all, thank you for what your hubby does and to your family for what you go through! Thank you for all the sacrifices y'all make!!!!

  21. I just made this recipe and it looks amazing! My boyfriend and I are excited about breakfast this week. We try to make our meals the night before and making breakfast for one week in one shot is great, Friday's breakfast is normally free at his company. Thank you so much :)

  22. I made this today for my family. They enjoyed it but my crescents didn't look as pretty as yours. They got a little stretched and didn't meet in the middle. It still was a nice breakfast treat.

    ReplyDelete
  23. This looks AMAZING!!! Do you know if you can make it the night before and reheat it in the morning? It's something that would be perfect for a busy day where I don't want to make food (like christmas or a trip day or something) but want an actual breakfast!

    From one military wife to another... :)

  24. I am excited to make this...and freeze it! For my husband to grab and go in the mornings! We've tried a bunch of different things to replace all of those expensive and processed breakfast solutions. The best we've come up with is mini cresent roll sammies. But this looks so much easier! Thanks for sharing!

  25. I missed the part about not overlapping the crescent rolls on the bottom to make a ring.... Mine turned out great, just needed a little more cook time! Thanks for the recipe and for all you and your husband do for our country!

    ReplyDelete
  26. So, I bought the jumbo crescents by mistake... doh! I just made little "pizza pocket" type crescents filled with the bacon, egg and cheese. Yummy!

  27. Navy mom here just saying thanks to your husband for his service and your support. Hooyah!!
    Can't wait to try this recipe in the morning.

  28. My son calls my dad Pop-Pop . That is cool about the seasoning salt. Amazing how food triggers good memories of loved one. Great dish by the way.

    ReplyDelete
  29. I'm a little confused about laying out the crescents in the star formation. A pic of that step would be much appreciated!

  30. Shanandcan...here's the link to the website where I found this recipe. She took step-by-step photos of how to prepare it (I never to that because I hate stopping in the middle of cooking to take pics, and I also don't want to get my camera all nasty). Hope this helps!

  31. Hey Mercedes. I love this recipe, and just mentioned it in my blog. I had to create a slightly different version (because I'm a vegetarian and make life hard :) ) I hope you don't mind if I post that recipe (giving you credit for the original and encouraging people to visit you, of course!)

    Cheers!

  36. more pics showing what you mean with the way to lay out the croissants would be great. But still giving this a try this morning. Probably going to end up as a "pinterest fail" cause I do not see it turning out as pretty as yours.

    1. Hey Kristine! If you click the source link under the recipe title for 'Bacon Time with the Hungry Hungry Hippo', she's got a great photo tutorial on how to make this. That's where I found this recipe...it's sooo good. And once you see the pics, it'll all make sense :)

  37. I am going to have to try this soon! With summer under way I wonder if you could make it in a Dutch oven over the fire?

    ReplyDelete
  38. I can't wait to try this! I've also wrapped crescent roll dough around ground hamburger with spaghetti sauce and cheese or chicken, broccoli and cheese. A huge hit at our house! Thank you for sharing.

  39. Trying this recipe this morning. :) Thanks for sharing - I'm sure it'll be delicious!
    This Canadian Military Spouse will most likely drench it in maple syrup though - yum!! :)

  42. This is so good! Found this on Pinterest and made it this morning for Easter breakfast. Substituted the bacon with turkey sausage. This might be an Easter morning tradition! Thanks for posting!!
