Breakfast Crescent Roll Up

Sharing is caring!

This Breakfast Crescent Roll Up is scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage and cheese all rolled up in crescent dough, then baked. I made something similar with my Bacon Cheeseburger Roll Up. Only, it’s for dinner. This is for breakfast.

A crescent roll up is basically the same thing as a pinwheel. Except, in this case, you bake it while it’s still rolled up and then slice it. Most pinwheel recipes are sliced first. Not all. We’ll just say this is also a breakfast pinwheel and move on.

These Breakfast Crescent Roll Ups can be served as a full meal, appetizer or even easy brunch snacks. They make great finger food or grab and go breakfast. See below for instructions on how to freeze them. Then you can just reheat what you need in the morning and head out.

How do you make breakfast pinwheels / roll ups?

You will first need the refrigerated crescent dough. Pillsbury now has the packages that the crescent dough is not divided up into 8 “triangles”. It is one solid sheet for recipes just like this one. Makes it soooo much easier.

Next you will require the following ingredients…

  • Eggs
  • Butter
  • Cooked Bacon
  • Cooking Sausage Patties
  • Shredded Cheddar Cheese
  • Green onions
Ingredients for Breakfast Crescent Roll Up
I only used one package of the crescent dough for this recipe. Ignore that other one.

Can Crescent pinwheels or roll ups be frozen?

Yes. Allow them to cool down to room temperature. Then wrap them individually. Keep the individually-wrapped rolls in a freezer bag until you are ready to reheat. They will last up to 3 months in the freezer.

To reheat frozen crescent rolls in the microwave: Reheat in increments of 30 seconds. Checking each time. Microwaves vary and so do the size of the “slices”.
