Breakfast in a Basket

Here is a unique twist on bacon and eggs for breakfast and is one of our favorites!

It kicks up an ordinary breakfast a notch and hits all the right buttons.  The crescent roll dough, filled with scrambled eggs, crumbled bacon, mushrooms, chives and cheese is delectably delicious.  

This dish does not need much tinkering but, you could make it with sausage for a change of pace.  It’s a fantastic, delicious way to freshen up breakfast and I guarantee you will be making it more than once!  

It is scrumptious!

4 slices cooked bacon, crumbled

How am I supposed to relax in a world where “truffle” can mean either chocolate or fungus?
