Crescent Bacon Breakfast Ring

I don’t know about you but I love weekend breakfasts. I love weekends, but that’s the subject of another discussion. But I try to make a nice and special breakfast every Sunday morning that both hubs and I enjoy.

So when I looked in the fridge and saw this lonely can of Pillsbury crescents, I knew I had to use it to make something delicious with it. This gorgeous breakfast ring came to mind and of course I always have bacon on hand, so I decided to make it with bacon. Did I tell you bacon is one of my favourite foods? I’m sure I did at some point in time.

Crescent Bacon Breakfast Ring

I love Pillsbury crescents, they’re so versatile and I make all kinds of things with them. Of course you could also make your own dough for this breakfast, but why slave in the kitchen when you don’t have to. So this is such a quick breakfast and so delicious, you could literally use any ingredients. Perfect Sunday breakfast.

What’s your idea for a perfect weekend breakfast?

Prep time
Cook time
Total time
Serves: 8
  • 1 can Pillsbury Crescents (8 in a can)
  • 8 slices of cooked bacon
  • ½ red bell pepper, chopped
  • ½ green bell pepper, chopped
  • 5 eggs
  • 1 cup cheddar cheese, shredded
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 egg for egg wash (optional)
  1. Preheat oven to 375 F degrees.
  2. In a bowl beat the eggs and add the chopped peppers to it and stir. Season with salt and pepper. Cook the eggs in a skillet so that they're scrambled.
  3. Lay out the crescent on a parchment pepper, like a star as shown in the picture above.
  4. On each crescent lay a piece of bacon. Add half of the cheese around the ring. Add the scrambled eggs around the ring and top with remainder of the cheese.
  5. Fold the crescents over. You may now brush with the egg wash if you prefer, I did because it gives the ring a nice and golden colour.
  6. Bake for about 20 minutes or until the crescents are cooked and golden brown.

    Served this to the family for Christmas breakfast this morning– huge hit. Everyone said its going to need to become a yearly tradition!

    Thanks Jo!

    My husband found this and asked if we could have it one weekend – so I made it today for brunch. Everyone loved it! The only problem I had was that there was nothing in the recipe’s instructions about cooking the bacon prior to putting it on the croissants. So the bacon was a bit undercooked, although thankfully not enough that my father-in-law, who only likes crispy bacon, noticed.

    Next time I am going to put in chopped green onions with the eggs & capsicum, and make some salsa as a condiment. Overall, a great dish, thank you!

        I have NO idea how I missed that! Sorry about that! LOL

        They still turned out marvellously, and I am definitely going to fossick through your site and see what other great dishes you have created.

    can someone please tell me what Pilsbury crescents are?? We dont have them in New Zealand so looking for an alternative …are they a type of pastry???

    • Fiona Hawke says

      I am a Kiwi as well, and my husband’s family here in the US are aghast every time I say, “Hmmm…no, there’s nothing like that in NZ”. LOL

      Trouble with NZ is that so much that is available to Americans online is unavailable to Kiwis (and Aussies). Here is a link to an Auckland bakery that makes “bake at home” croissants, which are available at selected New World supermarkets.

      Good luck!

    Can they be put together the night before and then bake them in the morning???
    this would be Great for an upcoming Ladies weekend I am hosting!

  5. Lisa says

    This looks so good – what a great idea!!
    I want to try it this weekend and I am wondering if you
    think I can make this ahead of time? Do you think it would
    hold up if I made it a day ahead and then reheated?

  6. Grace says

    Would I be able to freeze this? Precooked or uncooked? Just not sure what the egg mixture would turn out like. May be a bit watery?

    At first greetings from Germany.. :)
    I tried the ring on a lazy sunday morning.. and well what should I say.. my boyfriend is loving me a lot more now :D
    Thank you so much for such a great creativity and our new ritual for breakfast.. We love it!!!!

  8. says

    Made this today for brunch, YUM!!! Did you let the eggs cool before you put them on the crescents so you could actually make them into a ring? I ended up with just a huge lump of eggs and folded the crescents over that. Will definitely make again, so delicious.

    • says

      I don’t think I let them cool intentionally but it probably was a few minutes before I actually put them on the crescents.

  9. Lauren says

    This was so delish, I just made it. Thank you so much. I didn’t make it with the egg wash, will definitely do it next time, I want it pretty like yours. What did you sprinkle on top of it?

  10. Vonnie says

    You are just too clever. It not only looks delicious, but its attractive. I know we’ll love it without even making it yet, cause it has bacon in it. thanks so much!

      • Vanessa says

        You put the bacon raw right? Also when making the egg do you fully cook it and make it into tiny pieces or just make a whole big egg? Sorry for asking such dumb questions butt im a beginner and im alittle worried because this is my first time cooking for my boyfriend and he’s coming to visit from far away so i want to make him happy (:

        • says

          You cook the bacon first and you cook the eggs as if you were making scrambled eggs, but they don’t have to be cooked fully since you’ll be baking this anyway.

    love the crescent bacon ring, I to love bacon, I have a recipe for a turkey cranberry ring, using two packages of crescent rolls, great way to use up left over turkey.

  12. says

    I saw your picture of this and it was love at first site. So I said to myself, Self, I hope this isn’t too hard or time consuming because it looks so good. I love brunch on the weekend. As it turned out Self was very very happy. Now she can make something so good, but easy and very ta ta looking too. I better have mimosas in champagne flutes too.

    I get so frustrated when I see recipes with Pillsbury Crescents. I live in Australia and I love your blog but I cried out in pain when I saw this. You did mention I could make my own dough. Do you have a recipe I could use for this or is there a similar pastry that could be used in place of the Pillsbury Crescents. (we are not lucky enough to be able to buy it here)

    • says

      Yes I do, you could use the same recipe from these turkey bites. It’s probably going to turn out better anyway because the recipe for this dough is yummy. :) But there must be something similar to Pillsbury crescents in Australia, no?
