Ingredients

  • Eggs: use the freshest eggs possible, it will really make a difference.
  • Milk: Makes the eggs light and fluffy
  • Bell Peppers: I use both green and red bell peppers for the color and flavor.
  • Onion: I like to use yellow onions for their mild flavor. But any onion will be amazing in it.
  • Garlic Powder: It just takes a little to add amazing flavor to the eggs.
  • Salt & Pepper: Season to your liking.
  • Bacon: I like to use 6 pieces. But you can add more or less to your liking.
  • Crescent Rolls: I like to use the buttery Pillsbury grands. Make sure to keep them in the fridge until you are ready to put everything together.
  • Cheese: Cheddar cheese or a Mexican blend is best in this.

How to Make Crescent Breakfast Ring

  • Preheat oven to 375 F Degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.
  • Cook bacon and set aside. Drain off excess grease from skillet.
  • In a large bowl, add eggs and milk and beat with a whisk until well combined. Add red peppers, green peppers, onions, salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Mix and set aside.
  • In a skillet, add in egg mixture and cook over medium heat. Scrape the bottom of the skillet occasionally until eggs are scrambled to your liking.
  • On the prepared baking sheet, layer crescent roll dough in a 4-inch circle. With the triangles pointing towards the outside of the cookie sheet.
  • Add cooked bacon on the crescent roll dough towards the inner edge of the circle. Top with 1/2 cup of cheese. Then add eggs and top with the remaining cheese.
  • Fold the crescent dough over the eggs, tucking it under the inside edge of the dough to form the ring.
  • In a small bowl, add one egg and water. Whisk together until well combined. Brush the top of the dough with egg wash.
  • Bake for 18-22 minutes or until the crescents are fully cooked and golden brown.
  • Top with fresh chopped parsley and serve warm.

Can You Make This Crescent Breakfast Ring Ahead Of Time?

Yes, it can be made the night before you are ready to eat it. Just cover it with plastic wrap and refrigerate until ready to bake. Do not make it more than 24 hours in advance or it will turn out soggy.

Storage

This is one of those breakfast that gets completely devoured. But if you happen to have leftovers, store them in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 1-2 days. I recommend reheating them in the oven. To keep the eggs from becoming rubbery.

Variations

One of my favorite things about this recipe is that you can make any way that you like. Here are a few of my favorite add ins. But the possibilities are endless.

  • Meat: Cook your favorite ham or sausage and replace the bacon.
  • Mushrooms: Make sure to cook them before adding them in or they can make everything soggy.
  • Veggies: You can creative with the veggies. Some of my favorites are baby spinach, asparagus, and tomatoes.
  • Potatoes: Diced potatoes or hash browns are a great way to make this and even more filling breakfast.
