Crescent roll dough is the store-bought shortcut I lean on for easy breakfasts. The buttery, flaky dough is so versatile that I can use it in sweet and savory ways. Sure, the rolls make a great sidekick to dinner, but just wait until you see what the dough can bring to the breakfast table.
Savory and Sweet Crescent Roll Breakfasts
Crescent roll dough is a blank canvas just waiting to get shaped, cut, rolled, and stuffed with all of your favorite savory and sweet ingredients. And best of all it doesn’t take a lot to make it a meal. Armed with no more than a few kitchen staples and some creativity, you’re not far from an exciting breakfast.
1. Bacon and Cheese Breakfast Pinwheels
Inspired by cinnamon rolls, this savory version swirls shredded cheddar and crisp, crumbled bacon around Crescent roll dough.
Unroll the dough and cut into rectangles. If necessary, press any perforated seams together. Sprinkle with shredded cheddar and crumbled cooked bacon. Starting with the short side of the rectangle, roll the dough into a log. Slice and bake at 375°F until the pinwheels are golden-brown, 10 to 12 minutes.
