Breakfast Crescent Rolls (+Video) – The Country Cook

These Breakfast Crescent Rolls are perfect for a fast, on-the-go breakfast. Make ahead of time, freeze, then reheat when ready!

AN EASY HANDHELD BREAKFAST

We finally started back to school here and I am always looking for easy breakfast that we can all eat on-the-go. We’re all a little slow in the mornings and breakfast is sometimes an afterthought. I made a bunch of Freezer-Friendly Breakfast Burritos for a quick breakfast recently but I wanted something new to add into our morning breakfast-on-the-go routine. And boy, have I found it in these little Breakfast Crescent Rolls!

CAN YOU FREEZE BREAKFAST CRESCENT ROLLS?

Absolutely! They can all be made and baked ahead of time. Flash freeze them first on a baking tray. Then package properly (for freezer protection) in a freezer-safe bag or container. When ready to eat, simply reheat in the microwave. Also note: Fully cooked, frozen sausage links can be used instead of the cooked refrigerated ones. Just cook them in the microwave for about 30 seconds to thaw.
