These breakfast Pillsbury crescent rolls have become a big family favorite of ours.

You might be thinking – well, isn’t it just a bacon egg and cheese?

Yes but the warm crescent rolls turn them into a whole other breakfast experience.

It’s a truly unique flavor combination.

They’re so light and buttery and go together so we’ll with the salty bacon and fluffy eggs.

These are perfect to make for a crowd, too.

They’re all done at the same time so everyone can eat together.

It’s a great breakfast or brunch idea when the whole family is around to sit at the table and enjoy them together.

My family just loves them and I’m sure you would too if you give them a try.

If you’re a fan of cooking with prepackaged doughs like these crescent rolls, here are a few other recipes I know you’d like, too.

Do I have to use bacon?

Nope, you don’t have to use bacon at all.

Completely omit it if you’d like for a meatless breakfast option.

Or substitute it out for something else like breakfast sausage, ham, turkey bacon or anything else you’d like to try.

If you do use bacon here is an amazing way to cook it HERE.

Do breakfast Pillsbury crescent rolls reheat well?

This is a really hard question to answer because it comes down to personal preference.

If you don’t mind reheated eggs then they sure do!

Just pop them in the microwave for about a minute and they’re good to go.

Do breakfast Pillsbury crescent rolls freeze well?

If you don’t mind the reheated eggs, then yes!

You can make these ahead of time and freeze them for a make ahead breakfast.

Take them out of the freezer and put them into the fridge to thaw.

Then just pop them into the microwave to warm them up

What if my crescent rolls start burning?

If your crescent rolls start to brown a little too much and you’re worried they’re going to bun, no problem!

Pop some tinfoil onto the top and finish them in the oven.

Breakfast Pillsbury crescent rolls ingredients :


First, cook the eggs.

Scrambled is fine but I like to make a large omelette and break it into 8 pieces.

I find it holds better that way but this is completely your call.

Then, line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Next open the crescent rolls and lay them out on the parchment paper.

Now add some cheese to the largest part of the triangle. Just rip your cheese to make it fit.

After that, add one strip of cooked bacon

And the eggs.

Now roll them up until the crescent roll wrapped all the way around the bacon, egg and cheese.

Bake them in a preheated 375° oven for about 13 minutes.

Finally, let them cool slightly before serving with ketchup (optional).

    These look great. What do you think about slightly under cooking the egg so that it finishes in the oven?

      Heyyy I made this for the kids so I didn’t want to take any chances with the egg not cooking through. I’m suuuure it would be fine though!
