Bacon and Egg Breakfast Crescent Ring is easy made with bacon, eggs, cheese, red and green bell peppers and aromatic spices wrapped in pre-made crescent rolls.
This good looking Bacon and Egg Breakfast Crescent Ring is hearty, appetizing, and delicious for breakfast.
Who will not be enticed with this gorgeous and colorful crescent ring. Honestly, when I make it, I enjoy looking at it.
The first time I had this bacon and egg breakfast crescent ring was in a Bed and Breakfast in Vancouver. Boy, it looked and tasted so good that we devoured most of the ring.
When we go on vacation, we sleep in till 10 am and skip breakfast instead we have brunch. Lucky for us, they were still serving this delicious breakfast.
I was so impressed with the presentation and kept asking the lady how she made it. I think she really felt I was serious in learning how to make it.
It was our second day at the lodge and I have talked to her on our first day. She offered to make it again a day before we leave. She asked if I want to watch her. I jumped at the opportunity except I have to be up at 5 am.
It was hard getting up after a late night but I made it to the 5 am cooking session. I had 2 alarms in case I don't hear the first one.
I watched her make the first one, then while she was making the 2nd one, I was also making our very own Bacon and Egg Breakfast Crescent Ring and it was very easy. The shape was not as perfect as hers but for a first timer, it was not bad.
I was so grateful how accommodating she was even on a busy morning. That act of kindness was also good for their business. In fact, I have recommended their business to some acquaintances. Unfortunately, but good for them - the couple retired and sold their business.
I tweaked the recipe a little bit with filling similar to an a Bacon and Egg Omelette without spinach.
Don’t let this good looking ring intimidate you. When I first saw it, I thought it was very hard to make. So don’t be fooled - it is very easy to make.
I was so surprised how easy it was to make. I have baked this bacon and egg breakfast crescent ring many times, practice makes perfect. It always turn out deliciously good. This crescent rolls are amazingly convenient.
How to Make a Bacon and Egg Breakfast Crescent Ring
Lightly grease the baking sheet with oil or butter. As soon as possible after baking, try to detach the crescent ring if stuck on baking sheet due to egg drippings.
One thing I noticed, the underside is not as crispy as the top, so I added one extra step. I slowly flip the crescent ring with 2 kitchen utensils to crispy the bottom.
It is amazingly delicious when all sides are crispy. This is optional but try it.
- 10 eggs beaten
- 6 slices bacon cut into thin strips
- 4 gloves garlics minced
- ½ small onion chopped
- ¼ cup grated parmesan-romano cheese
- ¼ cup red bell pepper chopped
- ¼ cup green bell pepper chopped
- ¼ cup green onions chopped
- ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
- Salt to taste
- 1 8 oz Pillsbury crescent rolls refrigerated
- 2 tablespoons sesame seeds
- 1 teaspoon parley flakes
- 1 egg beaten for egg wash
- 3 tablespoons olive oil
- Slice bacon into thin strips and set aside.
- Beat 10 eggs. Season with salt and pepper. Set aside.
- Heat oil over medium heat in a skillet.
- Fry bacon. When cook and crispy remove from pan. Set aside.
- Saute onion for 2 minutes.
- Add garlic and cook until golden.
- Toss-in red and green peppers. Cook for 2 minutes.
- Pour the egg mixture.
- Toss back in the bacon. Add green onions and parsley flakes. Mix well.
- Cook until no more liquid egg remains. It is best when eggs stick to each other.
- Let it cool down while preparing the crescent roll.
- Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees.
- Open the crescent roll and unroll dough in a flat surface. Use a pizza cutter to separate each triangle.
- Lightly grease the baking sheet with oil or butter.
- Use a cookie sheet or a 12 inch pizza pan and lay triangles in a ring with the pointy part facing out and the wide ends overlapping creating a hole in the center. Once you like the layout of the dough, press the overlapping dough to seal it in place. This reminds me of the sun.
- On the wide end of the triangle, spoon egg mixture evenly.
- Sprinkle cheese over the egg mixture.
- Fold the pointy ends of the triangles over the egg mixture and pressing the extra dough around the center of circle. Form a ring with 3 inches diameter hole in the center.
- Brush dough with egg wash. After brushing each triangle, sprinkle some sesame seeds before egg wash dry.
- Bake until golden or light brown for about 20 minutes or so.
- Sprinkle with parley flakes before serving. Enjoy!
- I like the underside dough crispy so once it is done cooking, slowly flip the crescent ring with 2 kitchen utensils and bake for 5 to 8 minutes.
- You may substitute bacon with ham or sausage. Tomatoes and mushroom are also great with this dish.
