Ingredients Breakdown

  • 6 large eggs + 1 large egg for egg wash: The eggs are the main filling of the ring, with one extra for the egg wash to give the crescent ring a golden sheen.
  • ¼ cup milk: Adds creaminess to the scrambled eggs, making them soft and fluffy.
  • ⅓ cup red bell pepper, ⅓ cup green bell pepper, ¼ cup yellow onion: These vegetables add crunch, sweetness, and a beautiful color contrast to the dish.
  • ¼ tsp garlic powder, ½ tsp black pepper, ¼ tsp salt: These seasonings enhance the flavors of the eggs and vegetables.
  • 6 slices bacon: Adds a smoky, savory depth to the breakfast ring.
  • 12 oz crescent rolls: Serve as the base and structure of the ring, offering a buttery, flaky texture.
  • 1 cup cheddar cheese: Adds a melty, cheesy element that pairs perfectly with the eggs and bacon.
  • 1 tbsp water: Mixed with the extra egg for the egg wash.

Preparation Method

  1. Preheat and Prep: Begin by preheating your oven to the temperature specified on the crescent roll package (usually around 375°F or 190°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or lightly grease it.
  2. Cook the Filling: Beat the 6 eggs with the milk, and stir in the diced peppers, onion, garlic powder, black pepper, and salt. Scramble this mixture in a skillet over medium heat until the eggs are just set but still moist. Crumble the cooked bacon into the egg mixture.
  3. Prepare Crescent Dough: Unroll the crescent dough and separate it into triangles. Arrange the triangles on the prepared baking sheet with the points outward, overlapping the wide ends to form a circle with about a 5-inch diameter circle in the center.
  4. Add Filling and Cheese: Spoon the scrambled egg mixture over the wide ends of the dough circle. Sprinkle the shredded cheddar cheese on top of the eggs, and then lay the crumbled bacon pieces over the cheese.
  5. Form the Ring: Fold the pointed ends of the dough over the filling, tucking the points under the center of the ring to secure them.
  6. Egg Wash: Beat the remaining egg with 1 tablespoon of water and brush it over the crescent dough.
  7. Bake: Bake the breakfast ring in the preheated oven until the crescent dough is golden brown and cooked through, typically about 15-20 minutes.
  8. Serve: Allow the breakfast ring to cool slightly on the baking sheet before transferring it to a serving platter. Cut into slices and serve warm.
