Ham & Cheese Crescent Wreath Recipe

Pin It
I really like breakfast foods.  I like to eat breakfast foods at breakfast time, lunch time, and dinner time.  Not to mention for brunch and linner.  I enjoy making breakfast dishes with Pillsbury crescent roll dough.  I think it tastes so yummy with the eggs and breakfasty flavors that I love so much.  I saw this recipe on Pinterest and just had to try it out..

You will need Milk, Ham, Eggs, Pepper, Onion, Pillsbury Crescent Rolls I've never tried with another brand so if you do let me know how they turn out), and Grated Cheese.

Look at this cute little pepper I got in my Bountiful Basket this week.  So cute and not any hotter than a bell pepper.

Chop up your Pepper and 1/2 an Onion and throw into a frying pan with a bit of Olive oil.
Grab 5 Eggs and a bowl.

Crack the eggs into the bowl and add a splash of Milk in to make the eggs good and fluffy.

Grab your cute little whisk.

Add a little Salt and Pepper and then whisk everything together.

I try not to whip the guts out of my Eggs.  I read somewhere once that you want the yolk and the whites to be almost combined but not beaten into oblivion.

Add the Egg mixture into the softened onion and Pepper mix.  Using a rubber spatula move the eggs around constantly to get a nice even scramble.

Yummy!  I love scrambled Eggs and could eat them just like this.  I try really hard not to get my Eggs brown.  These ones turned out perfectly.
Line a baking sheet with parchment and place your Crescent Roll triangles like so.

I cut my Ham slices in half but they were a little long so I just folded them up at the bottom.  Extra hammy goodness in each bite.  Near the center Sprinkle 1/3 of the cheese.

Top with the Scrambled Eggs and another 1/3 of the Cheese.

Fold up the Crescent Roll dough like this to create the wreath.

Top with the last 1/3 of Cheese.

Bake 375 degrees for 17-20 minutes until it is golden brown and delicious.

Top with your most delicious Pioneer recipe for Chili Sauce and Enjoy!  What's that, you don't have a most delicious Pioneer recipe for Chili Sauce?  Well stay tuned..at the end of the summer I'll be sure to show you how I make it.

1 Can Pilsbury Crescent Rolls
5 Eggs
Splash of Milk
1/2 Onion chopped
1 small pepper chopped or 1/2 Bell Pepper chopped
4 slices Ham cut in half
1 Cup Shredded Cheese, Divided

Pre-heat your oven to 375 degrees.  Warm up a non-stick skillet over medium heat and add a little Non-stick spray or olive oil.  Add the chopped Onion and chopped Pepper and saute until they are softened, about 5 minutes.  In a Medium bowl add the 5 Eggs, a splash of milk (Maybe 2 TBSP), and Salt & Pepper and whisk together.  Try not to over mix and you will get amazing and fluffy eggs.  Add to the warm pan and scramble.  Do not brown the eggs only cook till whites are set.

Prepare a baking sheet with parchment paper.  Lay out the Pillsbury Crescent rolls triangles in a circle with the wide ends overlapping.  Top each Crescent Roll triangle with half a slice of ham.  Top the center portion of the wreath with 1/3 cup of the cheese.  Top the cheese with the scrambled Eggs and then top those yummy eggs with another 1/3 cup of cheese.  Fold the narrow parts of the Crescent Rolls triangles into the center and press gently to secure.  Once all triangles are folded up top the wreath with the final 1/3 cup of Cheese.  Bake 17-20 minutes or until everything is golden brown and delicious.

  1. Holy cow that looks delicious :) Yummy! I like Pillsbury crescent rolls with a little jam and cream cheese in them for desserts. Pinch em shut and cook it up inside (something from Foods class back in Jr. High)

  2. That looks delish. You have such creative ways to dress up some "everyday" foods.
