Breakfast Crescent Rolls

Today we’re making delicious breakfast crescent rolls. It’s very similar to a breakfast egg and cheese sandwich. However, everything is wrapped in a buttery and flaky crescent roll!

Hard-Boiled Eggs

One thing I like to do is make hard boiled eggs (check these out!) ahead of time, or get pre-packaged eggs at the store.

If you make your eggs ahead of time, you can keep them in the refrigerator in an airtight container with a paper towel for a few days.

Because the paper towel will sop up the excess moisture, you might need to change it each day. But the eggs will stay good for several days.

Breakfast Sandwich Cheese

Cheese really is a personal preference, don’t you think? We like using sharp Vermont cheddar cheese. It has a nice bite to it and since we live on the Vermont border, it’s always fresh.

Maybe you like stinky cheese, Swiss cheese, American cheese – you can use whatever cheese you would normally have on a breakfast sandwich.

If you’re the kind of person who likes breakfast sandwiches from fast food places, you’ll likely prefer yellow American cheese in your breakfast crescent rolls.

Breakfast Sandwich Meat

I know one of my all-time favorites is a nice egg and cheese sandwich. For me, it really doesn’t matter what the meat is. Whether it be sausage, bacon, or ham, it’s all good!

For this recipe, we’ll be using thinly sliced ham, otherwise known as prosciutto.

Breakfast Crescent Rolls Recipe

I’m not really one for fast food anyway, I prefer to make my own recipes and come up with unique flavor combinations that simply work.

As you know, I’m a huge fan of quick and easy recipes. This breakfast crescent roll is no different. It’ll take you no time at all to make.

Anyway, let’s get to the point and make these crescent roll breakfast!


Ingredients to make ham, egg, and cheese breakfast crescent rolls


We’re going to start with hard-boiled eggs, prosciutto, cheese, and of course crescent rolls.

Add Ingredients To Crescent Rolls

Simply roll out and cut the dough into their triangles. Add a piece of thin ham, a hard boiled egg, salt and pepper, and finally shredded cheese.

Wrapping Egg And Cheese With Prosciutto

Roll the egg and cheese up inside the prosciutto.

How To Roll Them Up

Since you stretched the crescent rolls a little bit, they should wrap around the egg quite well. Wrap the crescent roll around the ham, egg, and cheese before placing them into the oven.

I baked them with so the small end of the triangle is over top of the rolls when placing them onto the baking sheet. (I used these parchment paper sheets)

What Temperature To Bake Them

Because we’re following the crescent roll package instructions, use those to determine the temperature and bake time for your breakfast crescent rolls.

Bake them until they’re a nice golden brown color.

Customize the recipe to fit your taste by using different cheese, different spices, or even a different thinly sliced meat.
Your crescent roll package may not call for greasing the baking sheet. Follow the packaging, but I always use parchment paper. Parchment paper helps bake things more evenly.
