Breakfast is one of our favorite meals of the day. When we’re not rushing to get the kids out of the house in the morning, we like to make a good cup of coffee (that post is coming soon!) and cook a good breakfast. Our dishes usually include bacon, eggs, bread, really great cheese and bacon (did I say that already?). We’ve mixed all of these ingredients together in various ways over the years, but the Bacon Egg & Cheese Cups have been the most fun to eat. It’s simple to make and it tastes great.
- aged cheddar cheese (do not skimp here, a good cheese will make the difference between good and great!)
- muffin pan and liners
- salt & pepper
Preheat oven to 350
Cook bacon slowly on medium heat until almost fully cooked
While the bacon is cooking, use a cookie cutter or a drinking glass to make bread circles
Drizzle a small amount of bacon grease into the bottom of each muffin liner to prevent sticking before placing the bread circles in the pan. You can also use cooking spray.
Add in sliced cheese on top of the bread
Wrap bacon around the edge of each liner
Carefully crack an egg on top of the bread and cheese
Add salt and pepper
Bake on 350 for 15 minutes until the eggs are set but yolk is still soft
I’ve enjoyed making this cream cheese sausage crescent roll for a long time and thought it would be fun to document the process. My Mom made this for me when I a child and I’ve been hooked ever since. This flaky, cheesy, porky, amazing breakfast roll has brought a lot of smiles, full stomachs and probably some high cholesterol to my family over the years. The best part, besides the flavor, is that it’s really easy to make.
Only 4 ingredients are needed:
- 1 can Crescent rolls
- 1 package Cream Cheese
- 1 lb. breakfast sausage
- egg white
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
In a large skillet over medium heat, cook the sausage until it’s no longer pink.
Melt the cream cheese in a microwavable bowl for 20-30 seconds or until soft.
Add sausage to the cream cheese and mix together.
Generously butter a sheet pan.
Lay crescent rolls out on the buttered pan.
Crimp the seams together to make one large crescent roll.
Place the cream cheese/sausage mixture in the center of the roll.
Carefully pull up corners of the crescent roll over the mixture, crimping it shut.
Brush egg white over the entire crescent roll. This will give it a nice shine when it’s baked.
Bake at 350° for 15 – 20 minutes or until golden brown.
