Breakfast Rolls

So, my friends and I have a little bit of a problem.  When we get together to walk and get some exercise, we like to talk about food.  Many times, food that's so not good for us.  Then we go home and start making these delicious things we've been talking about.  Hence, our walking sessions turn out to be mostly for our social entertainment rather than keeping our bodies trim.

I love it!

That's where today's recipe comes from.  It was an idea that one of my friends had and tried and enjoyed.

We did too.

There's not much of a recipe to this, so it's easy to change the recipe to however you'd like it.

Here's what you'll need:

A tube (or two) of crescent dough, the seamless sheet
Cooked and crumbled breakfast sausage, or bacon
Scrambled eggs
Shredded cheese, any kind you'd like

If you haven't seen the seamless sheet of crescent dough at the grocery store, this is what it looks like.  I LOVE this stuff!  It's so nice when you don't have to worry about the seams in their original crescent rolls.  But if you can't find the seamless sheet, the regular crescent roll dough works just fine too.

Cook your meat and set it aside. 

Roll out your dough.  If you're using the regular crescent roll dough (that has seams), just press the seams together.

Assemble your ingredients.

Place scrambled eggs on the dough.

Sprinkle the sausage, or bacon, over the eggs.

Top with shredded cheese.

Roll up carefully jellyroll style (like cinnamon rolls).

Cut as you would cinnamon rolls.

I originally placed them onto a cookie sheet to bake.

They turned out ugly, still tasty, but ugly.  Like this...

Then I tried putting them in greased ramekins and the results were much better.  If you don't have ramekins, use a greased muffin tin.  It'd be perfect!  Bake at 375 degrees for approximately 15 minutes, or until golden.

We enjoyed these topped with country gravy.

So simple and so yummy!

Let the eggs & sausage cool before layering them onto the dough, otherwise it will make the dough too soft to roll.
