FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:

What are some other filling ideas?

You can fill this with whatever you like as long as you are able to make sure that the crescent rolls are able to close. Some ideas include chopped ham, peppers, onions, mushrooms, fried potatoes, etc.

What kind of gravy is best to serve with this?

Any breakfast gravy is great for this, I like to use my Homemade Sausage Gravy, but you can also use a can of Libby’s Sausage Gravy to make it quicker!

Do I have to top this with poppy seeds?

No you do not. You can just brush with melted butter if you’d like or even add some more cheese to the top to melt while baking.

Can I use pre-cooked meats?

If you want to cut the down on the prep time, you can use already cooked bacon and sausage crumbles. Just make sure that you use as much as the recipe calls for.

Do the tater tots need to be cooked all the way?

Not all the way. They need to be warmed though (as in no longer frozen). They will finish baking in the oven. I will usually just put them in my air fryer for a few minutes to warm because I like them crispy.

How do I store leftovers?

This Breakfast Crescent Ring Recipe can be stored in an airtight container or ziptop bag in the refrigerator for up to 5 days. Reheat in the microwave before serving.

INGREDIENTS NEEDED: (FULL RECIPE AT THE BOTTOM OF THE POST)

  • crescent rolls
  • tater tots
  • eggs
  • breakfast sausage
  • bacon
  • colby jack cheese
  • butter
  • poppy seeds
  • breakfast gravy, for dipping
Ingredients needed: crescent rolls, tater tots, scrambled eggs, 
breakfast sausage, bacon, colby jack cheese, butter, poppy seeds and breakfast gravy.

HOW TO MAKE A BREAKFAST CRESCENT RING:

Preheat the oven to 375°F. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper and spray with non-stick spray. Place a small bowl in the center of the paper (the crescent ring will not cook with the bowl, we are just using it as a reference and so the hole is big enough for the bowl when you stick it back in the center for your gravy when serving). Open cans of crescent rolls and separate them. Lay one down with the wider side near the base of the bowl. Place a second one down slightly overlapping the first one. Continue around the bowl with the rest of the crescent rolls, forming a sun shape.

Crescent roll triangles spread out around bowl of gravy.

Place tater tots in a circle next to each other around the wide edge of the rolls and bowl.

Tater tots added to top of crescent rolls.

Next spoon scrambled eggs in a circle around the tater tots.

Scrambled eggs added around tater tots.

Evenly spread sausage and bacon over the tots and eggs.

Sausage and bacon added on top of eggs and tater tots.

Next, sprinkle the cheese over the meat.

Filling sprinkled with shredded cheesee.

Pull the outside corner of each crescent roll over the eggs and meat and tuck under the inside.  Make sure to tuck well so when it bakes it will stay in place. Continue pulling the rolls over and tucking them under until all the rolls are finished and a ring has formed and remove the bowl from the center.

Crescent roll pieces folded over to seal everything together.

Brush melted butter over the rolls and sprinkle with poppy seeds.
