Sausage, Egg and Cheese Breakfast Ring

Okay, this is just the best idea ever.  I've seen two versions of it on The Kitchen Life of a Navy Wife and it's the most adaptable recipe ever.  Mine is no where near as pretty as hers, but you can put whatever you want in it and make it amazing.  Since we live in the middle of nowhere, we love to have people come up to the country to hang out and stay in the guest room.  This is SO EASY to put together in the morning.

Sausage, Egg and Cheese Breakfast Ring
adapted from The Kitchen Life of a Navy Wife

1 can crescent rolls
4 eggs, scrambled
1 cup shredded cheddar or 3 cheese blend
1 cup cooked loose breakfast sausage (fully cooked from Jimmy Dean! Hello, Easy!)
salt and pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 375.  Open the crescents and don't be scared when it pops (not possible!).  On a parchment-lined baking sheet, lay out each crescent triangle in a star formation with the longest points pointing out and the shortest ends all touching, pressing the short ends together a bit. 

Scramble the eggs however you normally scramble eggs and spread them out around the center of your starred crescents.  Top with sausage, cheese and sprinkle on your preferred salt and pepper (I've also used Old Bay, because, you know, Baltimore).  Fold in all the points of the crescent star to the center and press together to mold together a little bit.

Bake for 12-15 minutes or until golden on top.  Slice into that glorious beauty and have at it.

(this was the time i did sausage first)

Cheesy goodness!!!

I admit, I actually pour a little maple syrup on mine because I'm a disgusting glutton.  The beauty of this recipe is that you can do sausage or bacon, you could do any kind of cheese (like a spicy jalepeno would be awesome), you can top it with pepper jelly, WHATEVER.  Just bake it all up in a crescent star!  Do it!!
