Breakfast is the most important meal of the day because it gives us the energy for the whole day. It’s easy to always have it when your small and someone else is preparing it for you, but as we grew eating early in the mornings before we go to work or do other responsibilities, it can be hard to have a decent, homemade breakfast.
But, for those times when you actually are able to prepare something at home, either during work days or weekends, consider baking some crescent roll-ups. The warm crescent is perfect for cold, winter days and you can experiment with other ingredients, such as bacon, chicken and cheese. Scroll below to find out which ten recipes we picked for you!
1. Ham and Cheese Crescent Roll-Ups
Ham and cheese crescent roll-ups are perfect for dinner and if there are any leftovers at all, these crescents will be great for breakfast too. However, in order to taste the beauty of melted cheese, it’s best to eat them warm! To prepare these roll-ups, you need 1 can (8 crescents) store-bought or homemade crescent, 8 thin slices cooked ham (8 oz) and 4 thin slices Cheddar cheese (4 oz), each cut into 4 strips.
2. Philly Cheesesteak Crescents
These crescent roll-ups are full with many tasty ingredients, thanks to which you will feel full for hours. To prepare the Philly cheesesteak roll-ups, you need the following ingredients – 1/2 pound rare deli roast beef or London broil, 4 slices provolone cheese, 4 tsp horseradish sauce, 1 Tbsp butter, 1/2 onion, 1 green bell pepper and 1 can refrigerated crescent rolls.
3. Corned Beef Hash Breakfast Roll-ups
Ready in less than hour, these crescent roll-ups are best served warm when you can taste the melted cheese and beef the best. They are easy to prepare, and for that you need 1 (15-ounce) can corned beef hash, 1 tablespoon unsalted butter, 3 large eggs, 1 (8-ounce) can refrigerated crescent rolls, 4 slices American cheese, 1 egg yolk, 1 tablespoon sour cream, ground pepper to taste and fresh parsley for garnish.
4. Cheesy Buffalo Ranch Chicken Roll Ups
Here’s another very delicious combination of chicken and cheese. The crescent part surely adds so much to the chicken cheese combination, make a dozen more and you have your dinner as well! Make sure you have 8-10 teaspoons ranch dressing, 1 cup Colby & Monterey Jack Cheese (or similar), 4 ounces cream cheese, 8 count refrigerated crescent dinner rolls, 2 boneless skinless chicken breasts, 1-3 tablespoons hot sauce (depending on your heat level) and 3-4 chopped scallions.
5. 3-Ingredient Crescent Hot Dog Roll-Ups
The hot dog crescent roll-ups are popular choice when it comes to movie nights as well. They are really easy to prepare and cost so little, as all you need are just three ingredients – 1 (8-ounce) tube crescent rolls, 8 hot dogs and 1 tablespoon poppy seeds. These are ready in less than 20 minutes and you’ll have around 16 roll-ups. You can serve them with ketchup and mustard, or with any sauce that you would like.
6. Chicken Bacon Ranch Crescents
Again we have chicken roll-ups, but this time in a combination with bacon and mozzarella. This is ideal for anyone who enjoys all these ingredients in one meal, and we can’t blame them – who can resist warm crescent roll-ups with melted mozzarella and meat? You need 2 (8 ounce) cans store-bought or homemade crescent rolls, 16 thin slices of chicken ( I used deli-sliced chicken) or 1 small chicken breast, 16 slices cooked bacon, 8 pieces mozzarella string cheese and 1/2 cup prepared ranch dressing.
7. Buttery No-Knead Crescent Rolls
Unlike the rest on the list, these roll-ups don’t include anything inside them. They are simple, buttery and best when served warm! You can use butter, marmalade or even eat them plain simple like that. You need 1 1/4 cup warm water, 2 1/4 teaspoon (1 envelope) active dry yeast, 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, 1/3 cup granulated sugar, 1 large egg, 4 cups all-purpose flour, 1/2 teaspoon baking powder, 1 teaspoon salt and additional butter for brushing.
8. Pepperoni Cheese Stick Roll Ups
If you’re feeling over pizza for the day, try these roll-ups. They have the charm of the pepperoni and the melted cheese, being packed in a small dough roll-up. You need 1 (8 ounce) package refrigerated crescent roll dough, 4 cheese sticks, 1 (3.5 ounce) package sliced pepperoni and optional – marinara or ranch sauce for dipping. For the garlic butter glaze: 2 tablespoons butter, ½ teaspoon Italian seasonings, ¼ teaspoon garlic powder and 1 Tablespoon grated Parmesan cheese.
9. Bacon & Pepper-Jack Stuffed Crescent Rolls
Bacon is one of the most popular breakfast choices, especially among American families. Everyone who likes it crispy in a combination with cheese, should try these roll-ups. 6 slices of bacon, cooked and crumbled, 8 half-sticks of Pepper-Jack cheese, 1 (8 ounce) package refrigerated crescent roll dough and dried chives. The recipe makes about 8 roll-ups and it takes about 30 minutes to prepare them.
10. Cheesy Spinach Crescents
Spinach is one of the healthiest foods you can eat – it is rich in iron, protein, calcium, fiber and many vitamins! Of course, it is better to eat it as raw as possible, but having it in a roll-up isn’t a bad idea at all. For that, you need 2 tubes store-bought or homemade crescent rolls (8 ct. each), 4 oz. crumbled feta cheese, 4 oz. shredded mozzarella cheese or any cheese you like, 3 oz. fresh baby spinach, 1 egg white, 1/4 tsp. red pepper flakes and dash of salt and pepper.
