Croissant Breakfast Ring

The holidays are in full effect! Thanksgiving has come and gone and Christmas is right around the corner. I plan to go out and purchase a tiny tree for my apartment later today.

I realize many people have family in for the holidays and it's certainly not always appealing to them to "healthify" any foods. I know my family isn't really into that. My mom still won't eat turkey burgers and my dad probably couldn't tell you what hummus is. Moving on to extended family... well, let's not even go there. :-)

So, I found this super duper easy crowd pleaser of a recipe. It's versatile in that you can healthify, de-healthify, make vegetarian, make carnivorous, et cetera... I made it for the boyfriend and he LOVED it. As I don't eat red meat, I would sub out the bacon for turkey bacon and I might even go veggie and do an egg white scramble in place of the eggs and bacon.

Plus, just look how lovely it is! I promise any guest or spouse will be impressed when you set this steaming, beautiful breakfast ring in front of them. It looks like a work of art that took mad skills. But really, it couldn't be easier.

This is such an easy way to make a delicious breakfast for several people. Just pop open a can of crescent rolls, unroll them, and line them into a star-like shape.

Set your oven on 375F while you prep the filling. I used 8 pieces of bacon and 5 scrambled eggs along with some shredded cheddar cheese. This is where you can get creative.

Once you line your filling along the ring and a bacon piece along the length of each arm of the star, just roll up the crescents and tuck the ends under.

So mine ended up being a layer of cheese, a layer of eggs, a piece of bacon per arm, and another layer of cheese atop the eggs. I rolled up the ends and I brushed it with an egg wash to give it that golden color. Then I baked the ring for about 15 minutes.

And there you go! Slice and serve. Add a little salsa on the side or some chipotle crema.


Croissant Breakfast Ring

1 can crescent rolls (I used Trader Joe's, but any kind will do)
1 cup shredded cheddar (or cheese of choice)
8 pieces bacon, cooked (turkey bacon or sausage works too!)
4-5 scrambled eggs (depending on the size of your eggs)
1 egg whisked for the egg wash

1. Preheat oven to 375F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
2. Pop open a can of crescent rolls and unroll each crescent. Line rolls into a star shape with the pointy ends being the star ends.
3. Fry up 8 pieces of bacon. Scramble 4-5 eggs. Let cool slightly.
4. Spread half the cheese along middle perimeter of star shape. Line each arm with a piece of bacon. If it's too long, just break it into pieces. Line middle with eggs. Top with the rest of the cheese.
5. Roll each arm up and tuck the end under. Brush the whisked egg over the surface of the dough.
6. Bake for 15 minutes or until crescents are golden on top. Slice into 8 pieces and serve.
