Another recipe I received via email from Pillsbury site. I have made my own personal additions/changes to the original recipe. Great to make ahead the night before, except for the egg mixture and cheese. Also would be a great appetizer.

How To Make bacon-egg breakfast bites

  • 1
    Heat oven to 350°F. Generously spray 24 mini muffin cups with Crisco® Original No-Stick Cooking Spray. Cut each bacon slice in half crosswise. Unroll one crescent round; cut into thirds, forming strips of dough. Place half slice of bacon on 1 dough strip; top with potato nugget and roll up, stretching dough and pinching ends to seal. Place in mini muffin cup, spiral side up. Repeat with remaining crescent rounds, bacon and potato nuggets.
  • 2
    In medium bowl, beat eggs, salt, pepper and chives until well blended. Very carefully spoon scant tablespoon egg mixture around each dough-wrapped potato nugget.
  • 3
    Bake 13 to 17 minutes or until light brown on top and egg mixture is about set, then remove and top each with 1/2 tsp of shredded cheese and return to oven until cheese is melted (about 3-4 mins more). Remove from muffin cups to serving platter. Garnish with parsley, if desired. Serve warm.
