We liked the Tater Tot Breakfast Muffins, so I decided to try something similar with crescent rolls.

These seem to pop out of the wells easier than the Tater Tot Breakfast Muffins. If you have a newer muffin tin, you may not need to spray or grease the wells, but mine’s old. I wind up with quite a mess if I don’t.

For a creamier taste, try substituting half and half for the milk. If you do, add an extra tablespoon or two of half and half to make up for the extra thickness.

Ingredients
  1. 1 can crescent rolls
  2. 6 large eggs
  3. 1/4 cup milk
  4. 1/2 cup center cut ham, diced
  5. 3/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  6. 1/2 cup frozen shredded potatoes
  7. 2 Tablespoons onions, minced (optional)
  8. 1/4 cup mushrooms, diced (optional)
  9. 1/4 cup green or red peppers, diced (optional)
  10. 1/4 teaspoon pepper (optional)
Instructions
  1. Heat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Spray muffin tin with cooking spray or grease with shortening or butter.
  3. Cut each crescent roll in half and press into the bottom and up the sides of the wells of the muffin tin.
  4. Whisk eggs and milk, then stir in the rest of the ingredients.
  5. Pour mixture evenly into muffin tin wells on top of the crescent rolls.
  6. Bake for 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center is clean.
Notes
  1. There will be 2 extra crescent rolls and extra egg mixture depending on how many optional ingredients you use and the exact size of eggs. Extra large eggs, extra leftovers. These can be saved for a second batch or fried in a pan for a quick snack while you wait.
  2. To freeze cool completely and wrap each quiche in plastic wrap, then place in a freezer bag. This keeps the quiches from sticking together and helps prevent frost buildup.
  3. To heat from frozen, microwave for 1 1/2 to 2 minutes. 1 1/2 minutes works for me at full power in a 1250W microwave.

Sorry for the terrible picture. It looked better in the camera, honest! I’ll take pictures again the next time I make them, but as always, anyone that tries them out and wants to send pictures, please do.

I love making these little muffins and freezing them for later. They heat quickly and make for a fast, satisfying breakfast.

Serve with fresh fruit for a well-rounded breakfast.

Ingredients
  1. 36 tater tots
  2. 7 large eggs
  3. 1/4 cup milk
  4. Favorite Fillings, Diced
  5. Suggestions: ham, sausage, bacon, turkey bacon, green peppers, red peppers, onion, fresh mushrooms, spinach, kale
  6. shredded cheddar cheese for topping
Instructions
  1. Heat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Generously grease or spray all the cups of the muffin pan with shortening, butter, spray olive oil or cooking spray. I seem to have less problems with sticking when I use shortening.
  3. Place 3 thawed tater tots in each cup of a muffin pan. If you forget to take the tater tots out to thaw, you can pop them in the microwave for a minute or two to thaw. After placing in muffin pan cups, use a small cup to squish the tater tots flat.
  4. Bake tater tots for 10 minutes.
  5. Remove tater tots from oven and fill each cup loosely with your favorite fillings. Don't cram or pack them in, the eggs need holes to fill.
  6. Whisk together eggs and cup milk. Fill each cup with egg mixture. Sprinkle cheddar cheese on top (optional).
  7. Bake for 20 minutes or until the egg is cooked through.
  8. To remove muffins, run a fork around the edge of each one to loosen it from the sides. Place fork back in the side, push in on the muffin gently and twist. The muffin should pop right out.
Notes
  1. To freeze cool completely and wrap each muffin in plastic wrap, then place in a freezer bag. This keeps the muffins from sticking together and helps prevent frost buildup.
  2. To heat from frozen, microwave for 1 1/2 to 2 minutes. 1 1/2 minutes works for me at full power in a 1250W microwave.

I found this recipe on the net somewhere and adapted it to my style over time, but I’m not sure of the original source. There are many different sites with very similar recipes. So, I didn’t give any one site credit as the “adapted from” because I don’t know which one to credit. Thanks to all of them though. I enjoy having a yummy, fast breakfast choice.
