Bacon, Egg, and Cheese Croissant Roll – How can you miss with this one?

I never feel like I have told you enough about the wonders of the croissant roll.  They are endlessly diverse masterpieces that can forever change the way you look at meals.  I love love love putting things in them and rolling them up for a nice bake in the oven.  The creativity never stops flowing with these!

This past Saturday morning I put together this little gem of a recipe.  If you enjoy easy prep breakfast, this recipe is for you.

Bacon, Egg, and Cheese Croissant Roll

  • 1 tube of croissant rolls or a tube of a croissant sheet
  • 8 pieces of pre-cooked bacon (I just cooked mine fresh that morning.)
  • 4 eggs or egg whites (cooked, scrambled)
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese (or more if you like it really cheesy like we do)

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Line baking pan with parchment paper or grease pan so roll does not stick.
  3. Lay the croissant dough out flat on the pan, and press perforations together to seal the dough if using the rolls tube. 
  4. Sprinkle the cheese over the dough.
  5. Spread the cooked eggs over the cheese.
  6. Place the bacon on top of the eggs.  Feel free to crumble it up if you would like.
  7. Begin at one end and roll up like a swiss cake roll (sorry, best analogy I could think of right now *smiles*).
  8. Once all the way rolled up – trust me this is the frustrating part keeping everything from falling apart, but well worth it – place in oven for approximately 20 minutes or until the outside is golden brown.
  9. Take out of the oven and slice according to the thickness of the roll you want.  Enjoy!
