Pillsbury Crescent Rolls Make an Easy Breakfast Dinner




School has started and so have the more strict routine. Dinner needs to be a certain time, bath at a certain time and bedtime, so important now that school has started. We usually eat the same meals over and over but I’ve been venturing outside our box for some new quick and easy meals. I even used my crock pot for the first time in a year! That is one goal – using it more often.

I want to make easy and kid friendly meals that make my family say, “Wow”.  One way to do this is by using Pillsbury Crescent Rolls. There are so many different recipes to try. I was browsing online for some my family would enjoy. I came with at least a dozen recipes I would love to try but will start off with what I hope my family will like the best. One of our favorite dinners is breakfast. So I tried Crescent Breakfast Casserole.



Crescent Breakfast Casserole
Recipe Type: Dinner or Breakfast!
  • 8 oz. Crescent rolls
  • 8-10 slices of bacon, crumbled or sausage
  • 6-8 eggs
  • 2 cups shredded cheese (jack, cheddar, colby, whichever you like)
  • 2-3 tbsp. milk
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • cooking spray
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees and prepare either 13×9 or 11×9 baking dish with cooking spray. (use about 6 eggs for the smaller pan and about 8 for the larger pan)
  2. Line the dish with unrolled crescent rolls, letting it come up the sides a bit. Press the seams together.
  3. Layer the crumbled bacon or sausage and cheese over the crescent rolls. Beat eggs with milk, salt and pepper and pour over bacon and cheese.
  4. Bake about 25-30 minutes or until center is set. Let cool for a few minutes, then serve.

I got the above recipe online. After making it I would recommend adding more meat. Maybe bacon and sausage and less cheese. Unless your family loves cheese. Mine likes it not loves it. I used 6 eggs and next time I will use 8 even with the smaller dish.

Over all everyone liked it. But I look forward to making it again with the added ingredients.  I love how the Pillsbury Crescent rolls added that extra buttery flavor! I ate the leftovers for breakfast – yumm!
