Ingredients

  • 8 slices (about 8 oz.) bacon
  • 4 large eggs
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 1 (8 oz.) tube refrigerated crescent roll dough
  • 1/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese

Instructions

  • Bake or fry the bacon according to its package directions. Cool. Blot grease away with paper towels. Chop or use your hands to crumble the bacon into very small pieces.
  • Add the eggs, milk, salt, and pepper to a large bowl. Whisk until the eggs are well scrambled. Add the butter to a medium skillet and place over medium heat until the butter is melted. Add the eggs to the skillet. Cook the eggs, stirring occasionally, for 5 minutes until the eggs are done (160 degrees Fahrenheit).
  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Unroll and separate the crescent roll dough into 8 triangles. Gently stretch out the dough. Push the center of each triangle down into the center of a muffin cup in a nonstick muffin tin. The 3 points of the triangle should be sticking out of the top of the muffin cup.
  • Divide the cooked eggs between the crescent rolls. Use the back of a spoon to smash the eggs down into an even flat layer. Top the eggs with the bacon. Top the bacon with the shredded cheese.
  • Fold the points of the crescent roll over the top of the filling, trying to cover as much of the filling as possible. Pinch the dough together where it touches.
  • Bake for 12-13 minutes.
  • Cool for 5 minutes before removing from the muffin tin.* Serve warm.

Notes

*Don’t leave them in the muffin tin for much longer than 5 minutes or the bottoms will get soggy.
