There are three main uses I have for eggs. First, I use them in all of my baked goods. Second, I am a huge quiche fan and often whip one up with whatever vegetables I have on hand. Third, we like to use eggs for our breakfast. This recipe is a delicious bacon, egg, and cheese breakfast crescent wrap. The eggs are scrambled in a pan with fresh vegetables then wrapped in crescent roll along with bacon and cheese. They are cooked to a golden brown and served hot.
I like these for several reasons. They were easy to make and I was able to wash all the dishes while they were baking. They were prepared and made in under 35 minutes which makes for a fast breakfast. Lastly is the taste. The saltiness of the bacon with the bite of the cheese all surrounded with the fluffy eggs makes for the perfect individual sized breakfast.
- 4 strips bacon, cut in half
- 1/2 c. bell peppers, chopped (I used red and yellow)
- 1/4 c. onion, minced
- 3 garlic cloves, minced
- 4 Eggland's Best Eggs
- 1 t. black pepper
- 1 roll of refrigerated crescent roll dough
- 4 oz. sharp cheddar cheese, thinly sliced
- Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
- Place the bacon slices in a medium skillet over medium heat. Cook for 2-3 minutes per side or until they are just cooked but not browned. Remove from pan and set on a paper towel to drain.
- Remove all but 1 teaspoon of bacon fat from the pan. Add the peppers, onion, and garlic to the bacon fat and saute for 3 minutes.
- In a small bowl beat the eggs and black pepper. Pour over top of the pepper mixture and gently push the eggs around the pan with a spatula for 3-4 minutes or until they are cooked.
- Unroll the crescent rolls and divide into 8 triangles. Place one slice of lightly cooked bacon on each crescent triangle. Spoon 1-2 tablespoons of the egg and vegetable mixture on top of the bacon and then place a few thin slices of cheese on top.
- Starting at the small end, roll up the crescent rolls. Place on a large baking sheet.
- Bake for 13-15 minutes or until the crescent rolls are golden brown. Remove from the oven, cool for 2 minutes, and serve hot.
