Believe it or not, once upon a time, I was not a huge fan of bacon. I KNOW! I thought it was greasy and gross. Then, I met my husband. We started dating, I started staying over his house during the weekend, and he started making us breakfast. That’s when I began to enjoy America’s favorite breakfast food again! My husband knows how to cook bacon! It’s always crispy (without being burned to a crisp like I used to make it) and never flimsy or greasy.
These days, bacon has become a weekly fixture in our refrigerator. It’s a weekend must-have. During the week, I try to find creative ways to use it up like including it in warm salads and more. Recently, I’ve been getting tired of eating the same breakfast everyday. That’s when I remembered a recipe for breakfast bagel bombs that I saw circulating Facebook.
Store bought pizza dough gets filled with a scrambled egg, bacon, and cheese mix. Then, the stuffed dough balls get boiled and baked to create a bagel-like texture. They were good, but after cooking bacon, scrambling eggs, and filling the dough, I hardly needed two extra steps. Ain’t nobody got time for that!
Crescent dough seems to be another staple in our fridge lately. I love using it for both savory and sweet recipes (I’ll be sharing two other crescent dough recipes with you soon) like these Caramel Apple Crescent Rolls. This week, I filled crescent rolls with a breakfast mixture to make the easiest breakfast bombs ever!
Seriously. All you need to do is cook up a few slices of bacon, scramble some eggs, and add in some shredded cheese. Roll it up in a crescent roll, sprinkle everything seasoning on top, and bake. That’s it! Now you’ve got yourself a tasty, freezer-friendly, fast breakfast that adults and kids will love!

- 1 package of crescent rolls
- Everything seasoning
- Preheat to 375 degrees and spray a baking sheet with non-stick cooking spray.
- In a large frying pan, heat bacon over medium heat, stirring to cook evenly.
- Cook until bacon is just done to your liking and remove from pan.
- Wipe pan out, leaving a little bacon grease on the bottom.
- Heat eggs over medium and scramble just until done. Stir in bacon and remove pan from heat.
- Open crescent roll package and separate each crescent roll triangle.
- Spoon the egg mixture evenly into the larger end of each crescent roll triangle. Sprinkle cheddar cheese on top.
- Begin rolling up each crescent roll by tucking in the ends of the larger side, then rolling it up until you meet the other end of the roll.
- Place seam-side-down on the baking sheet. Sprinkle with everything seasoning.
- Bake breakfast bombs until golden brown.

Parents, I’m thinking of you with this one! School’s starting soon, if it hasn’t already, and mornings are going to be pretty hectic again. Heat two of these breakfast bombs up, give them to the kids, and send them on their way! You might even want to grab a couple to have with your morning coffee as you head out the door to work.

Besides easy, have I mentioned that it’s a pretty cheap recipe to make, too? Winning!
