Ingredients

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 350°F. Line large cookie sheet with cooking parchment paper.
  • 2
    In 12-inch nonstick skillet, cook bacon over medium-high heat about 4 minutes or until cooked but not crisp, turning once. Set bacon aside; drain all except 1 tablespoon bacon drippings from skillet.
  • 3
    In medium bowl, beat eggs, 1 tablespoon of the green onions and the pepper with whisk or fork until well mixed. Pour egg mixture in same skillet; cook over medium heat 1 to 2 minutes or until eggs are thoroughly cooked but still moist. Add cream cheese and 1/2 cup of the Cheddar cheese. Cook 1 to 2 minutes, stirring occasionally, until cheese is melted.
  • 4
    Unroll dough; separate into 8 triangles. Cut each slice of bacon in half crosswise. Place 2 pieces bacon on shortest side of each triangle; top with about 2 tablespoons scrambled egg mixture. Roll up at shortest side of triangle, rolling to opposite point. Place crescents, point side down, on cookie sheet.
  • 5
    Bake 15 minutes; sprinkle crescents with remaining 1/4 cup cheese. Bake 2 to 3 minutes longer or until crescents are golden brown and cheese is melted. Sprinkle crescents with remaining 1 tablespoon green onions.

Tips from the Pillsbury Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Try a different shredded cheese in this recipe, such as Colby-Monterey Jack cheese blend.
  • tip 2
    To soften cream cheese, place in small microwavable bowl; microwave uncovered on High 20 to 30 seconds or until softened.
  • tip 3
    Swap bacon for cooked sausage links or chopped ham, if desired.
  • tip 4
    Serve with fresh fruit for a well-rounded brunch meal.
