When Pillsbury asked me to create a recipe using their Crescents® I immediately started thinking of dinner options, because when I think about Pillsbury Crescents® I think of dinners at my granny’s house. However, the more I mulled over what type of recipe I wanted to create the more my mind kept drifting to breakfast foods. Over the holidays my sisters and their families are coming to stay and celebrate with us, and I’m quite sure we will have many lazy mornings gabbing in our jammies while the kids play and tear the house apart. We are going to need some tasty, kid-friendly, and easy-to-make brunch foods for those lazy family mornings, don’t you think?! And so the idea for these Bacon, Egg, and Cheddar Breakfast Pinwheels were born.
My 6 year old got home from school just as these bad boys were coming out of the oven, and he went nuts for them and ate a ton. I was delighted! My 3 year old approved of them as well, so I am going to call that a win! Watch this little slide show and/or read on to see how simple they were to prepare for my family.
To make these Breakfast Pinwheels you will need the following ingredients:
* Pillsbury Crescents® (I got mine at Walmart in a double pack! Killer price.)
* scrambled eggs (4-6 eggs, depending on how stuffed you want them to be)
* bacon (8-12 strips)
* cheddar cheese, sliced or grated
Prep your Pillsbury Crescents® dough by rolling it out flat. Scramble your eggs, slice your cheese, and fry up your bacon.
Lay the slices of cooked bacon on top of the crescent dough.
Place the slices of cheddar cheese on top of the bacon.
Top the cheese with the scrambled eggs.
Begin to roll up your dough from the edge until you have a nice, long pinwheel roll.
Slice off sections of your pinwheel roll and place them onto a greased cookie sheet. (I had to use a huge knife to get through all of that bacon!) I did have to tighten the roll on a few of them, but for the most part they sliced off just fine. I got 12 Breakfast Pinwheels from my roll.
Bake at 350 degrees for 15 to 20 minutes. The dough should be golden brown and the cheese should be melted.
Now plate them up and serve warm! YUM!
I hope that you are excited to try making these Breakfast Pinwheels. They would be such a simple thing to vary to your family’s tastes as well! For instance, if you prefer ham and swiss cheese just swap out the bacon and the cheddar!

Happy holidays, and happy entertaining!
