Optional garnish: fresh chivessliced green onions, or fresh parsley
Preheat oven to 375F/190C. Spray a 13-inch x 9-inch baking dish with cooking spray and set aside.
Unroll crescent dough and spread in the bottom of the prepared dish. It’s fine if the dough overlaps slightly. Gently press together the perforations to seal the dough.
Place diced bacon on top of crescent rolls. Sprinkle with cheddar cheese.
In a medium bowl, whisk together eggs and milk. Add salt and pepper, to taste (if desired).
Pour egg mixture over bacon and cheese.
Bake, uncovered, for 35 – 40 minutes, or until eggs are set. Check on the casserole after about 20-25 minutes. If the crust is looking golden brown, cover the casserole lightly with foil and continue baking until the eggs are set. This will prevent the crust from becoming too dark.
Allow the casserole to rest for about 10 minutes before slicing and serving.
Garnish with chives, green onions, or parsley.
Cooking for a Smaller Family? Cut the ingredients in half and prepare the casserole in an 8-inch square baking dish. The cooking instructions remain the same, although the baking time may be a bit shorter (30-35 minutes).*I purchase 2 boxes of thick-cut cooked bacon for a shortcut. You can cook your own bacon at home, if you prefer.
