Cheesy Breakfast Crescent Ring Ingredients

Ingredients and Variations

DOUGH: Crescent roll dough produces those perfect triangles ready to be filled and rolled up. However, in a pinch, biscuit dough, breadstick dough, or even pizza dough can be rolled out thin and cut into triangles with a pizza cutter.

CHEESE: Herb and garlic cream cheese adds a savory flavor to this breakfast ring, but plain cream cheese will work, too. For a super savory option, mix in some homemade Olive Garden Salad Dressing, or your favorite taco or chili seasoning. Shredded cheddar delivers a sharp, robust flavor, but Monterey Jack, Swiss cheese, and Gruyere will add new flavors, too!

BACON: Ground pork sausage, Shredded Chicken, or turkey is a good way to use up leftovers. 

How to Make A Crescent Ring

This fun-to-make dish is sure to be enjoyed, and it’s easy to make, too:

  1. Cook whipped and seasoned eggs in a pan until they are barely set (the egg will be glossy).
  2. Roll out crescent rolls in a sunshine shape (as per the recipe below).
  3. Spread cream cheese along the wide edges of the ring and top with eggs, cheese, & bacon.
  4. Starting at the tips, roll up each crescent. Sprinkle with extra cheese & bacon. Bake until the crescent is browned and cooked through.

Tips for Success!

  • Let the cream cheese come to room temperature before adding any herbs or seasonings to it or before spreading it on the dough.
  • Prepare breakfast crescent roll in advance, cover in plastic wrap, and keep chilled until ready to add toppings and bake.
  • Keep leftovers covered in the refrigerator and serve cold. Or simply reheat individual portions in the microwave.
  • Cooled portions can be wrapped tightly in plastic wrap and kept in a zippered bag in the freezer for up to 4 weeks. What a great way to keep a quick breakfast at the ready for busy mornings.
