This breakfast roll ups recipe is one of the popular breakfast in our house. The recipe is a crowd pleaser and you don’t have to make the dough yourself you can substitute cans of store bought dough of croissant or crescent and just make the fillings yourself.
I made different fillings for the breakfast roll ups: some were made with cheese, sausage links, and egg. Some had just cheese and sausages, while some had sausage and eggs just to have varieties to choose from.
I had made some before with caramelized onion and the this was definitely a great addition, if you like onions I’d say try these babies with onions and you’d be glad. For cheese, you can buy shredded cheese, blocks of cheese and grate them or sliced cheese and cut them into too. You don’t want to overfill the dough for easy roll ups.
You Might Want To Try:
- 4 cups All Purpose flour
- 1/3 cup granulated sugar (adjust to your preference)
- 1 cup warm milk (warm to touch
- 2 ¼ teaspoons active dry yeast (1 packet)
- ½ cup unsalted butter (room temperature)
- 1 egg
- ¾ tsps. Salt
- 8 eggs (plus 2 teaspoons of milk); whisked
- 2 Tablespoons butter
- Salt and pepper
- 24 pieces Turkey sausage links
- 12 slices or 2 blocks/shredded cheese (provolone/cheddar/or your choice or more)
- 1 Stalk green onion or some chives (chopped)
In a mixer bowl, add warm milk, yeast and pinch of sugar and set aside for about 5-10 minutes until it foams on top.
Add the rest of the dough ingredients.
Mix on low speed with dough hook and mix until all the ingredients are combined then increase the speed to medium speed. Knead until the dough is smooth and elastic about 8-10 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, or just grease the mixer and place the dough in it. Cover with a clean towel, and place in a warm place to double in size about 45-60 mins.
Tip: you can warm your oven for about 1 minute turn it off and place the bowl to fasten the process.
If you don't want to make the dough yourself you can get store-bough crescent roll dough can and start from next step.
In a small bowl, whisk eggs, and milk until combine and reserve about 2 tablespoons in a small bowl for brushing before baking. Season with salt and pepper and combine.
When you about 10 minutes left from the dough you start working on the dough, begin to work on your fillings.
Warm the turkey sausage links in a microwave or heat a skillet on medium skillet and warm them up for a few minutes, I used cooked turkey sausages.
Melt butter in a non-skillet pan on medium heat and cook eggs, stir with a spatula until the egg is almost done, you still want your egg soft since you're still going to bake. Sprinkle chopped onion and set aside.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees, spray baking sheets with cooking spray or grease with oil or butter and set aside.
Bring out the dough and punch down. Place on a clean workplace/surface and knead into a big ball and divide into 4 or 2.
Take one ball and cover the rest of the dough and roll out with a rolling pin then cut into 4 or six (depending on big or small you want it) using a pizza cutter.
Take a piece and place cheese (if you’re using slices cut into 2 and use half), about a teaspoon of cooked egg, and a turkey sausage link (you don't want to overfill the dough for easy roll ups) then roll forward to the tip of the dough then place in the baking sheet.
The tip of the dough could rolled out a little bit more if you desire. You can cut up your dough in a rectangular shapes if you don’t want to use the crescent shape. Repeat the process until you’re done with the dough.
I made some of these breakfast roll ups differently; some I added egg and sausage, some have just cheese, and some cheese and sausage.
Using a pastry brush, brush the dough the reserved egg (the egg you set aside when you wanted to cook the egg) and bake in the preheated oven for about 18 mins or until golden brown.
If you desire, brush the top with butter immediately after bringing them out of the oven.
Allow to cool down.
Serve and enjoy!
