I don’t know about you, but I am totally a breakfast person. It has always been my favorite meal of the day. I love how there are just so many options–sweet, savory, fruity, cheesy–I want it all! So naturally, I like to have fun in the kitchen when creating my breakfast. But I guess I’m not alone in that because this little treat for breakfast lovers (see what I did there?) was actually a team effort.

While still in bed this past Saturday, I brainstormed out loud, “hmm, what can we have for breakfast? We have those crescent rolls still. Oooh, we could roll up some eggs, soysage and cheese in them!” “We should cut them into hearts and fill them with that stuff,” Johnny cleverly suggested. It was the day after Valentine’s Day after all, and I guess we were still in the spirit. It wasn’t until after I had already preheated the oven and busted open the Pillsbury can that it dawned on me to document this cute breakfast meal. Johnny reluctantly agreed and grabbed his camera.

Here’s how we made these charming little filled heart breakfast puffs.

You’ll Need:

  • 1 skillet
  • 1 baking pan
  • 1 rolling pin
  • 1 can of crescent rolls
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 soysage (or sausage) breakfast patties
  • 1/2 cup of shredded cheese

Of course, you can fill these bad boys with the items (veggies, maybe?) of your choice.


Preheat the oven according to directions on crescent roll can. Warm a skillet and cook soysage thoroughly. Scramble the eggs until they are just barely ready. Set aside.

Open the can and unroll the crescents into one long sheet. Break them apart in rectangles, leaving the two triangles attached. Pinch the perforated area and pat down to securely attach the two triangles. Fold in half and roll out with a rolling pin.

Using a knife, cut the shape of a heart in the dough. Continue these steps will all the rectangles of dough. Once you have all the hearts ready, put your filling on half of the hearts and use the other half as a cover. Pinch the edges of the heart and secure closure with a fork. Poke a hole (or make a heart, or an x, whatever you want!) in the center of the puff for venting. Bake according to crescent roll can directions.

That’s it! We really enjoyed these puffs and even sprinkled a little bit of extra cheese on the top. Think next time I’ll try adding broccoli, garlic, and mozzarella. YUM!
