This delicious recipe is not only awesome to eat, but a breeze to prepare and virtually no cleanup. That’s my kind of breakfast! I first learned a variation of this from my friend Pam from Salt Lake City 20 years ago (you know it’s a keeper if I’m still making it 20 years later!). It’s great for every day and is special enough for company. It’s also great for brunches and those nights when you make breakfast for dinner. I promise, you will love this recipe!
Take Pillsbury extra large crescent rolls. Line a muffin pan with one crescent roll each. Mold the dough a little to create a cup in the pan. Next, layer in a slice of thin cut ham or Canadian bacon. Crack the eggs into the dough and ham molds and then top with a little cheese (optional). Fold all the corners of the crescent rolls to the center of the cup. Have them meet in the middle (they will not completely cover the egg tops).
Place a piece of aluminum foil on the bottom rack of the oven to catch the egg spillover that will happen. Cook the eggs according to the crescent roll package direction time/temperature. When the timer goes off, turn the oven off and leave the pan in for about 10 more minutes, allowing the eggs to further set. Carefully remove eggs to plate and drizzle with prepared Hollandaise sauce. Enjoy!

Homemade Hollandaise sauce directions
