Breakfast time is always a rough time for my family. It can be a constant battle where I am trying to negotiate some sort of protein into my kiddos’ bellies. In my attempts I come across something that they end up loving and lucky for me these Sausage, Egg and Cheese croissants were a hit! I am a huge fan of them because they were really easy to make.
If my husband had his way, he would he would name these “Pigs and Chicks in a Blanket.” Just hearing my hubby call them that helped my son love these even more! Proof that it’s all in the name for some. lol
What You need:
- 8 Biscuits or Croissants in dough form (I used a store bought tube of biscuits)
- 4 Eggs (1 egg will work for 2 rolls)
- 8 Sausage Links (1 per roll)
- Shredded Cheese (1-2 T per roll)
- One small bowl with a beaten egg (not cooked) or a little water
- Rolling Pin (I use a heavy glass cup)
- Baking Sheet
Step 1: Preheat the oven to 325.
Step 2: Precook the eggs and sausage. I found it easiest when I scrambled the eggs before they were cooked all the way and then let them cook as one solid piece. This made sure to keep the eggs in all inside.
Step 3: On a lightly floured surface roll your 1 roll out until it is 2 -3 times longer than its original size.
Step 4: Add half an egg, a sausage and top with cheese on the bottom portion of the rolled out dough (see below). Roll the dough up and seal the dough with a little water or a raw egg.
Step 5: Add the pan to a baking sheet and bake for 16-18 minutes until fully cooked and lightly brown.
Step 6: Serve and enjoy! My kiddo seven like dipping these in ketchup.
