  • 2 cans 8 ounces each Pillsbury™ Refrigerated Original Crescent Rolls
  • 1 ½ cups cooked diced bacon (I used 17 slices of thick-cut cooked bacon, or about 5 ounces cooked)*
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 6 eggs
  • 2 cups whole milk
  • Salt and pepper to taste (optional)
  • Optional garnish: fresh chives sliced 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.
