Try to find an easier breakfast recipe that’s this delicious. Go ahead, I dare you! There are lots of recipes going around now for these shareable rings in all sorts of variations created from pre-made dough. You’re talking stuffed pizza bites, buffalo chicken bread rings, all sorts of stuff. So I figured I’d take a crack at it and make the easiest one I could think of. It’s basically 4 ingredients, plus seasoning. How much easier could it get?
1 can pre-made crescent dough (8 crescents in one can)
8 slices packaged pre-cooked bacon
1 cup sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
salt and pepper, to taste
dash garlic powder
1 egg, beaten for egg wash
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 20 minutes
Preheat your oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. In a bowl, beat the 5 eggs and season with salt, pepper, and a dash of garlic powder. Cook the eggs in a skillet or rice cooker so they are scrambled, done to your liking.
Lay out your rectangle of crescent dough on a sheet of parchment paper or cutting board. Spray the bottom of your tagine with nonstick cooking spray; then arrange the triangle pieces of crescent dough in the tagine to look like a star with the wide ends coming together to overlap and form a circle in the middle, with the points draping over the edge of the dish.
On each crescent lay a piece of bacon, from wide end to point. Add half of the cheese around the ring, then the scrambled eggs, and then the rest of the cheese. Fold the crescents over, gently tucking the tips under. Keep in mind that not all of the egg and cheese will be covered with dough, and that’s ok! Now brush the other beaten egg over the top of the ring; this will give it a nice golden color.
Bake for about 15-20 minutes until the crescents are cooked and golden brown. Carefully remove from the oven and allow to cool slightly before serving in slices.
