Eggs in a Crescent Basket

Hey everyone, I know it’s been about a week since my last post! I’m trying to keep up my old pace, but some days are easier than others! The good news is, I have a delicious and easy breakfast (or brunch) recipe for you today. The bad news is, I lost all of my other pictures from this day of cooking, so you just get the after:

Again, this is very easy. Think of it like a slightly elevated “eggs in a basket”! So because I don’t have many pictures, let’s just jump right into it, and hopefully my descriptions are enough.

You might also notice I’m a little more loose with the measurements in this one, because this recipe was really all about making things easy for myself on lazy, Sunday morning. I spent most of my preparation doing dashes and eyeing my seasonings rather than really thinking out measurements. Feel free to do the same, and even add some pizzazz with other ingredients.

(For meat lovers, adding a meat like chorizo or ground sausage before adding the egg is another way to really kick up this meal!)


  • 1-2 cans of crescent roll dough (depending on how many you want to make)
  • eggs
  • paprika
  • parsley
  • salt and pepper
  • shredded mozzarella


  • Preheat oven to 375-degrees and line a baking sheet with non-stick foil.
  • Open crescent roll can and unravel dough.
  • Separate the triangle, perforated slices of dough.
    • To make the “basket” with the dough:
      • Take one triangle slice and lay it flat, molding it into a circular shape for the base. Take another slice and twist it at the edges until the dough is just a twisted, long piece. Do the same to another. Set the two twisted pieces on the flat, base slice and connect the ends so it forms the outer edges.
      • Do this for each “basket” until you’ve run out of dough, essentially.
  • Form a bed of cheese in the basket, leaving a gap in the center where the egg can rest.
  • Carefully crack and egg into the bare spot.
  • Sprinkle more cheese, paprika, salt and pepper and parsley.
  • Once oven is heated, baked for recommended time on crescent roll packaging
    • (I did mine for an extra minute or two to get the roll nice and golden, as seen in the picture above.)

And there you have it! I hope you enjoy this delicious recipe. Sorry this post is so short today. I’ll make it up to you with the next one.
