Beautiful Bacon, Egg, & Cheese Wreath & The Inspiration Behind It All Steelmom


Only 4 ingredients to make this tasty wreath.
     While watching videos for the new Kraft Cooking Creme, at the Real Women of Philadelphia, I came across this recipe I found so intriguing.  The RWoPer that inspired me to make this wreath is known as "Steelmom".  For me, her nickname has always been perfect for her, since she is someone I admire for being a hard working mother inside and outside of the home.  She must be made of steel to do all that she does, working full time as a sales representative for a steel mill, raising a family, and not to mention creating the most beautiful hand painted ornaments.  Her wonderful recipe and how to video for her Santa Fe Breakfast Ring can be found at the link below.  You can also check out some pics found on her profile, of her beautiful hand painted ornaments.

   Recently I have been on a mission to clean out my pantry and avoid buying new ingredients.  So  I made my breakfast wreath only using items I had on hand. 


Ingredients:

1 can of Pillsbury Crescent dough 8 count (we use reduced fat but regular is fine too)
5 large eggs (we use cholesterol fat free egg product)
1 cup of shredded Colby and monterey jack cheese (we use 2% reduced fat cheese)
8 slices of fully cooked bacon (I buy the bacon that is fully cooked from the store)




Preheat oven to 375 F degrees.  Scramble your eggs on stove top.  Lay out crescents
on a parchment lined pizza pan as shown above.

Add your cooked bacon.

Add about 1/3 of your cheese.


Add your eggs and a third more of your cheese and fold crescents over.



Add  the rest of your cheese to the top and bake for 17 minutes or until crescents are done
and golden brown.




Serve hot, I recommend garnishing with fresh salsa and some chopped parsley.
  Thanks again Steelmom for the wonderful inspiration and terrific recipes you have shared with us at RWoP.  I just love the idea of a crescent wreath/ring.  I am already dreaming up other ideas for fillings.  I would not be surprised if a dessert crescent wreath sees its way onto Bacon Time soon.

  12. You serve this to your kids? Holy smokes, those kids are lucky! Seeing this is really bad for me, since I've decided to cut some of the things that I eat. But with this food, I guess it's really impossible for me to do that diet.

    ReplyDelete
  13. yummy and easy! do you think I could make this the night before and then refrigerate it so I could just pop it in the oven the next morning.

    ReplyDelete
  14. This recipe is VERY easy and VERY tasty. We loved it. Thank you for sharing. I'm going to make it again.

  15. I made this today for a breakfast playgroup I was hosting for my MOMS Club friends. It was so simple to make, but so incredibly delicious! Everyone wanted the recipe.

    ReplyDelete
  16. By "fully cooked bacon" do you mean to fry/bake it prior or do you mean to buy the bacon that says it's cooked but still looks raw... trying this very soon and can't wait! Looks DELICIOUS.

  17. Found this recipe on Pinterest. I just made some this morning with eggs, chicken, brie and sharp cheddar. Really good!

  22. Now that it's going around Pinterest please answer some of the questions posted by followers above. Thanks.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Anonymous I do answer questions, I just usually try to do it by visiting the commenter's blog and not on here, since I am not sure if they will return. However to please you, yes you can either cook your own bacon first, or as I did use the store bought fully cooked bacon. I do think you could make it the night before, but I have never tried it. It doesn't take long to make though, when you use the fully cooked bacon from the store. If you did make it the night before, and then baked in the morning, I would make sure you wrap it in plastic wrap so that it doesn't dry out overnight. I hope that helps answer every ones questions. I am so happy you all love the wreath and tutorial. I also have on my blog a pb and jelly wreath, with white chocolate, and a new holiday pepperoni wreath. All are just as easy as this one. Happy Thanksgiving.

  24. As for the unhealthy comment. I use cholesterol free egg product, and often use turkey bacon, and reduced fat cheese, and reduced fat crescent rolls. I can think of a lot worse things to eat, and of course this is a special breakfast, we have oatmeal most mornings.

    ReplyDelete
  25. We are making this this morning. It's in the oven now! Just want to give a tip -- don't make your bacon crispy...we forgot it needed to roll up! We made it work though.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Anonymous #25, awesome, it might have been hard to roll with crispy bacon but I bet it tasted that much better. Thanks for making the dish on such a special day like Thanksgiving.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Mine is in the oven right now! I actually fried my bacon crispy, and then crumbled it so every bite would have bacon. Yum! I also undercooked my scrambled eggs. The house smells soooo good too!

    ReplyDelete
  28. I'm thinking Christmas morning, after presents before church. If I can put it together before presents begin, it could bake... Maybe I could put it together the night before and cop a few extra minutes of sleep.

    ReplyDelete
  29. About how many servings does it make? I have a large family that loves to eat and I may have to make two.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Susie I have a small family, just four of us, and two are kids. It was just enough for us, and I would for sure recommend making two.

    ReplyDelete
  31. I made this for the girls at work one am , and it was so easy and yummie .. thanks for the idea and i will copy this to my blog for people to see too... YUM!!

    ReplyDelete
  32. Going to make Christmas morning but will use "facon" instead (a soy based product, which actually tastes pretty good!)...as part of my family is vegetarian. Looking forward to it!

    ReplyDelete
  33. hi! could i heat this on a grill?

    ReplyDelete
  34. Anonymous #33, I am sure you could. You would want to make sure your grill stayed the proper temp for baking, so use one with an accurate temperature gauge. I would use some sort of baking tray, maybe a pizza stone, just make sure you heat it up gradually with the grill, so you don't crack it.

    ReplyDelete
  35. @Tammy #32... is the "facon" as salty as reg bacon?

    ReplyDelete
  36. Can you do sausage instead of bacon or both?

    ReplyDelete
  37. Anonymous #36, I am sure you could do sausage or both, just make sure it is fully cooked before you add it, that way you don't have to worry about it possibly not reaching a safe temperature.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Has anyone tried it with hash browns or ham?

    ReplyDelete
  39. Mindie, I saw this recipe on pinterest last week, and made it today. Yummo!!! I've sent the link to family and friends and I'm adding it to my board. Thanks for a easy & delicious breakfast.

    ReplyDelete
  40. Followed your recipe as presented and the family asked for more:))

    ReplyDelete
  41. I made this for breakfast this morning & it turned out delicious!! The already cooked bacon is a definite must....it saves a lot of time and mess!!

    ReplyDelete
  42. #38 I think it would be great with cooked hash browns inside or ham. I am so tickled that so many of you have tried this recipe. It was pinned long before I ever started pinning on Pinterest,and I am amazed by the # of comments and emails I get over this simple recipe. Much love and Merry Christmas folks.

  43. Made it this morning for my family and it was a big hit! A very good change to regular bacon and eggs!

    ReplyDelete
  44. Thank you so much for this post! I made it for my family this morning, Christmas day, and they loved it. It was a big hit! They are wanting me to make it every day...LOL Merry Christmas!

  45. I'm never posting a recipe " can I make it the night before" " can I grill it" " can I put it where the sun don't shine?...yes" I like the recipes I will take it as just that not a way of life.

  46. My stepmom made it Christmas morning. During our Christmas phone conversation, she told me she found this recipe on pinterest and it was so yummy! I went and found the recipe. Mine is in the oven now! I can't wait for my family to try it! Thank you for the recipe, pictures, etc...!

    ReplyDelete
  47. Silly question, do you need to use parchment? It's not something I have on hand and doubt I'd use often.

    ReplyDelete
  48. Melissa - I just made it on PAM sprayed foil and it worked out fine.

    ReplyDelete
  49. made this tonight and it is very easy ans soooo yummy, my husband says its a keeper

  50. This looks so yummy! This is similar to a recipe by pampered chef, I've used cherry pie filling with cream cheese and powdered sugar and its great!

    ReplyDelete
  51. thank you for this reciept. it looks awesome and delicous..Can't waitto try it..

    ReplyDelete
  52. I will be replacing the bacon with turkey bacon. I have a wonderful recipe which uses 2 packages of crescent rolls to make a cream cheesecake. It's wonderful, but very simple to make.

    ReplyDelete
  53. How did u ger the bottom to cook right? mine was soggy and yucky

    ReplyDelete
  54. Anonymous not sure what happened. Have you checked your oven temp recently to make sure it is accurate? Do you think it just needed to cook longer? Mine was nice and crispy following this recipe, and I have had several folks test recipe with great success. You could try adding ground yellow cornmeal to the bottom to make it extra crispy. You could also bake it on a pizza stone, that will usually help make things extra crispy. Make sure your eggs are scrambled completely before adding, so that you don't have too much moisture. I do live in a high altitude so baking times can very, You will want to bake it until the crescent dough is nice and crispy.

    ReplyDelete
  55. You don't need parchment but I highly recommend it since it lets you easily slide the wreath off of your baking tray for a pretty presentation.

    ReplyDelete
  56. First of all, this looks delish and I will definitely have to try it out. Also, I recently had dinner at a friend's house and she made a similar dish with a crescent roll wreath crust but filled it with taco meat and cheese then we garnished with shredded lettuce, sour cream, tomatoes, and olives. It was very yummy. Just another crescent roll wreath idea! :)

    ReplyDelete
  57. I made it but added potatoes to the eggs. Kind of like an egg and potato breakfast burrito without the tortilla!

    ReplyDelete
  58. This may seem like a silly question, but is there a way to get a "printer-friendly" version to pop up from this blog? I would love to print it without wasting so much paper-have encountered this problem on several recipe blogs. Some have the feature and some don't-or at least I am just not finding it maybe? Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Sorry in the delay, I would say 4 people easy more depending if you have it with other things, and how hungry you are. You figure a 1/4 of it is 2 crescent rolls with a little egg, cheese and bacon.

  75. The eggs are already cooked. How do the eggs NOT become dry and unpalatable?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. If you don't cook the eggs first they will make the dough soggy. As long as you don't over scramble your eggs, they will stay nice and moist thanks to the cheese and dough, that have plenty of moisture in them. Trust me this recipe has been tested by plenty with rave reviews. It's one of my easiest and yet most popular recipes.

  79. Is the parchment paper necessary? I have never used it. I assume it makes it not stick to the pan and keeps the pan clean too?

    ReplyDelete
  80. I made this recipe this morning, bought parchment paper at the dollar store, worked great, now I am a fan and it came out beautiful, just like your picture, it was delicious and it fed two of us. Thanks!

  84. Designer catier watches look sophisticated and stylish. Designer handbags are always light in weight as well as spacious. Now-a-days winter jackets serves not only its practical function, but also is used as a status symbol for emphasizing the user's identity. The miu miu hobo variety that you can get in handbags is tremendous. if you look at the various brands of cheap chanel shopping and you will find that qualities and brands never go parallel to each other. There cheap hermes handbags will be something different with the different products.

  86. This was seriously awesome. I found it via Pinterest but it was a copy of the recipe and without photos (she credits you in the comments). Hello! Wish I'd seen yours with the photos first - love the suggestion of salsa and cool to see how you did the wreath. I just filled in the center with a broken piece of dough - it all tastes the same in the end but :) Yum. My husband was psyched! Thank you!

    1. Yes, but you would need to scramble them first just like you would with regular eggs. I use a fat free cholesterol egg product in mine.

      Delete
  88. Here's an idea-I remember when I was in New Zealand, I ordered eggs Benedict. Someone ordered smoked salmon in lieu of the ham and I got their order by mistake. It was AMAZING! How could you turn this breakfast wreath into a variation of that? Some smoked salmon, cheese and eggs, maybe some basil? Yum yum!! Of course if you could pull off a little single-serving of hollandaise sauce for everyone, that would just put it over the top!!

    ReplyDelete
  89. Wonderful recipe! We're going to use it at our family reunion in June.
    Also, wonderful guidance for losing weight. It sounds like something I could really succeed at, so I'm going to try your tips. I am also hypo-glycemic (so I get the hungry part) and my mother had diabetes. She died of a stroke because of it -- she was not overweight, 5'7", 135 lb. but it can really get you if you don't know you have it.

    What I'm really asking about is the Crocheted Hat in your ME NOW Picture. Did you create the pattern? Are you willing to share? It is beautiful, and so are you!

    ReplyDelete
  90. My mom made me that hat. We both crochet but she is much better then me. I don't think she used a pattern. I will double check next time I see her. I have a similar one never worn, with matching scarf, in a pink camouflage color if you want to purchase for $15. I have more hats and scarves then I know what to do with. Thanks for your kind comments.

    ReplyDelete
  91. I think I'll skip on the pink hat and scarf. I have the same problem, (too many :)). I make hats for humanitarian projects around here, so I'm always looking for new patterns. I'll check online to see if there is anything similar. Thanks for checking.

    ReplyDelete
  97. Parchment paper is NOT the same as wax paper. I just found this out the hard way. The wax melts into the dough and starts to smoke as the paper becomes exposed and may set on fire. After 5 minutes I checked in on the dough and it was all smokey. Crisis averted as I quickly transferred the crescent ring onto foil. :)

    ReplyDelete
  98. I made this today and it was a hit! I didn't have enough bacon, so I used diced ham for a few of the croissants, and it was delicious! This fed 3 adults almost perfectly. If I have more people to serve, I would use more eggs, make a second ring, or just serve with a side. Delicious--thanks for sharing!! :)
