I don’t care if it is 5:00 AM or PM, a good breakfast sandwich is still a good breakfast sandwich and that is exactly what this recipe is!
Thanks to the repin I received that linked back to the Bacon Time with the Hungry Hungry Hippo dinner tonight was a snap, and surprisingly amazing! I am not going to lie, I had my doubts.. but it didn’t disappoint and it will definitely get repeated!
-1 can of Crescent Rolls (I used Acme brand)
-1 package of bacon (You could use the pre-cooked kind if you wanted to eliminate a step)
-1 cup Colby and Jack Cheese Mix
-Preheat oven to 375 degrees (that was the oven temperature that the crescents called for).
– Start your scrambled eggs: Beat the 5 eggs, pour into a hot pan, let cook and don’t burn them!
-Microwave your bacon (8 pieces)
-Line a pan with parchment paper, unroll the crescents so that it looks like a flower (the bigger triangle base should be in the center), it is ok if there are some spaces, it all works out fine. Use all of the rolls. Then lay a piece of bacon on each individual triangle, dump half of the cheese onto the bacon/rolls, then pile the eggs over top, dump the remaining cheese onto the layers.
– Wrap the ends up, to make a little basket. Remember, it is ok if there are some small holes, cover them as much as you can. But it will all be fine.
-Pop in the oven for about 15-18 minutes (follow the directions on your can for best results). And you are done! Easy right?
Now, I like hash browns with my eggs so I made some to go on the side. I bought the frozen potato strands (technical term IDK?), dumped them into a Teflon pan with about 2 tbs of EVOO. Sprinkled some salt, pepper, parsley and onion and mush together. Then just let it brown up.
Now, you could technically be done.. but what is breakfast without a mimosa? So grab the OJ, pop the champagne and pour yourself a nice big drink!
Now you are ready to eat! Enjoy!
