Filled with sausage, cheese and eggs our Crescent Roll Quiche Cups recipe is a quick and easy breakfast idea. Great for on the go, charcuterie boards, brunches, and more.
I love making these crescent roll egg cups because they are so flavorful and ready in about 30 minutes. And the clean-up is minimal, making this recipe a favorite for busy Moms. I’m all for the easy button when it comes to breakfast.
Anytime I can make food into individual servings, I’m all in. And my family enjoys noshing on single serving foods, too. I mean, who doesn’t, right?!
These little quiches are so good that I added them to my Breakfast Charcuterie board, and of course, they were a hit.
Another reason to love Crescent Roll egg cups is that the recipe is forgiving. Meaning you can add and omit ingredients to your preferences and the recipe should still work just fine.
Add this recipe to your next holiday breakfast, brunch, or special occasion meal. They are a family favorite, so be prepared to share the recipe.
Ingredients for Crescent Roll Quiche
Crescent roll dough
sausage – be sure to cook the sausage before adding it to the muffin cups
Salt and pepper
Non-stick baking spray
How to Make Crescent Roll Egg Cups (Quiche)
Spray your muffin pan with non-stick spray and preheat your oven to 350 degrees F.
Add one triangle of the crescent roll dough to each muffin cup making sure there aren’t any gaps. Press the dough together as needed.
Whisk together the eggs, salt, and pepper in a small bowl and set aside.
Add the cooked breakfast sausage to each muffin cup, dividing evenly between the 8 cups.
Spoon the egg mixture over each cup, you will use about 4-5 tablespoons for each one.
Top each quiche with cheese.
Bake for about 25 minutes and allow the muffin quiches to cool for 5 minutes before taking them out of the tin. This is to allow them to set up so they don’t fall apart.
Crescent Quiche Variations
I mentioned earlier that this recipe is forgiving. I’ve got a few ideas to get you started. If you do add extra ingredients, just put a little in each cup so it doesn’t bake over.
Feel free to add your favorite spices for a different flavor (a pinch of garlic powder takes these over the top).
