Breakfast Crescent Pizza

So I was searching in the fridge for something different for breakfast.  I came up with plenty of eggs and half a kielbasa sausage.  Then I noticed a rolls of crescent rolls, which are usually bought for a purpose and I was surprised to see it in the fridge.  This is how I came up with breakfast crescent pizza.

Keep in mind anything would really work for your toppings.  Scrambled eggs are the base and I would choose some great meat or sautéed vegetables on top.

Breakfast Crescent PizzaBreakfast Crescent Pizza:

  • crescent rolls
  • scrambled eggs
  • grated cheese
  • bacon, sausage, or ham, cooked and chopped
  • mushrooms, spinach,onions,zucchini,bell pepper, etc., chopped and sautéed until tender

Start by rolling out the crescent roll into rectangles.  Each can would make 4 large rectangles.  If you tried this with triangles you wouldn’t be able to fit very many toppings on.]

Bake the rectangles according to directions minus 1-2 minutes.

Meanwhile scramble eggs, cook or brown meat, and sauté your vegetables.

Remove the crescent rolls from the oven.  Top with eggs, vegetables, meat, and a bit of grated cheese to lock it all in.

Place back in oven for 1-2 more minutes until cheese is melted.

I ate mine with salsa on top or some might like ketchup!

Taco Crescent Ring

Taco RingThere is a huge brand out there that came out with this Taco Crescent Ring at least 15 years ago.  Well I am still making it but I have my version.  It is easy and looks fancy plus both Mr.Picky and the kids eat it up with smiles on their faces.  It is not by any means healthy or by scratch.

I happen to have bought a box of 5 cans of crescent rolls as a treat to create what I felt necessary.  This is not a usual purchase and I know they are loaded with all kinds of junk.  Sometimes my stomach feels the need to eat some junk and doesn’t care what my brain or body want.

I was in need of a quick dinner and had everything on hand.  So this recipe was prepared once again to everyone’s satisfaction.  I thawed the meat from the freezer and the rest of the ingredients are usually on hand.

Taco RingTaco Crescent Ring:

  • 2 tubes of crescent rolls
  • 1 lb. ground beef or turkey
  • 1/2 cup onion, chopped
  • 1 (16 oz.) can of refried beans (black or pinto)
  • 1 recipe of my taco seasoning or a taco seasoning packet
  • 2 cups cheddar cheese or mexican cheese blend
  • 1/2 cup water
  • tomatoes, diced
  • sour cream
  • lettuce, shredded
  • salsa
  • olives,sliced

Brown ground beef and onion in a skillet and drain any extra fat.

Add in water, taco seasoning, and refried beans.  Stir and heat until combined.  Set aside to cool slightly.

On a circular baking pan or baking stone spread the crescent rolls evenly in a sun shape.  Leave a circle about 6 inches wide in the center and have the pointed end face out, overlap here needed.

I will sometimes roll or press the rolls together to get a good base for the filling if needed.

Spread the meat mixture around the circle evenly allowing about 1/2″ of room near the edge of the inner circle.

Sprinkle with the cheese.

Starting anywhere began folding the pointed edge of the outside triangle into the center.  Slight press or tuck under the inner circle to hold the filling together.  Not all of the filling will be covered and that is the pretty part.

Bake in a preheated oven at 375 degrees for about 20-25 minutes or until golden brown.


Serve with tomatoes, sour cream, lettuce, salsa, and olives to top each slice.

Cottage Cheese Crescent Rolls

Cottage cheese crescent rolls is a recipe out of grandma’s recipe box.  Years ago I copied some recipes on  my recipe cards and put them into my box.  I recently found this recipe and it sounded interesting.  I have no recollection of Grandma making this or of eating these.  So why not try them.

How easy to mix it all and forget about it overnight.  Plus there are only three ingredients, it can’t get much easier than that. I baked them up the following evening to accompany our dinner.

Next time I might roll them out a bit thinner.  The directions were old and didn’t give a lot of guidance.  1/4 inch thickness would be about right next time.  I made only have a recipe and it made 16 rolls which seemed like plenty so I will keep the recipe adapted.  I also wasn’t sure if I mixed them enough because I could still see bits of cottage cheese.  Don’t worry the cottage cheese just melted away in the oven and no one would guess it was in there.

They had a great butter flavor and we found they tasted best with a bit of jam.  I would make these again for sure.  These rolls are pretty small but being loaded with butter probably is just right.

Divide dough into half.

Roll each half as you would a pie crust and cut into 8 triangles as you would pie pieces, use a bit of flour if needed as you roll out to prevent sticking.
