Savory Crescent Filled Breakfast Popovers

Rainy mornings are perfect for writing and having a cup of earl grey with milk and sugar. After a busy day yesterday, I’m enjoying some tranquility at home this morning. As cars go past my open window, I can hear the calming sound of water rushing through passing car tires. Oddly enough, it sounds a lot like waves by the ocean. I like it.

I made a bunch of these Savory Breakfast Popovers a while back, and as Easter brunches may be coming up in a few days, I thought I’d get to sharing this. Of course, these are fun to make for a breakfast or brunch any other time as well. There are several little jobs to do, so it also makes a good group cooking activity. For those who may protest the name, yes, these aren’t popovers in a strict sense (those you can make in a popover pan, and they are often just light, airy bread) but this recipe is for a savory breakfast pastry that is substantial and flavorful, and all bundled up in one self-contained “popover”. The popovers worked great for an “on-the-go” breakfast that we could pull out of the freezer, then bake in the toaster oven for 10-15 minutes at 400F, or until golden brown and crispy. (*It takes longer from frozen)

Here’s How:

  1. First, cook the eggs, bacon, and sausage.
  2. Mix in raw potatoes that you chop.
  3. Add salt and pepper and mild cheddar.
  4. Open up the crescent rolls and separate the triangles
  5. fill the triangles so that you can easily roll over and fold the corners in to fully cover the filling. I laid out everything on a large, silicone baking mat that you can get at Bed Bath and Beyond.
  6. wrap individually in strips of parchment paper
  7. seal in a freezer bag and freeze until needed.
