The Organized Life, Almond Danish and Buried Danish Breakfast Bake

This is a two for one recipe~ I categorized this under the Organized Life because you can not only do it ahead of time for easy breezy entertaining, you can double it and make a batch of danish and the casserole at the same time

Serve them together for a brunch buffet or freeze the extra danish for another day

You can make and enjoy the Almond Danish

Or you can combine the sweet rolls with bacon & eggs for a delightfully different breakfast casserole that can be assembled in just 15 minutes!

You start with good old crescent rolls…did you hear about the Crescent Roll Controversy?   You can read all about it here, plus see a great crescent roll recipe round-up

Oh! and by the way, I’ve made a Pinterest board for easy reference for many Crescent Creations here


Spread the crescent roll dough triangles with a mixture of sugar, butter and almond paste


Roll up and bake


Or place them in a baking dish


Cover with a sauce of scrambled eggs, cheese and bacon




The rolls bake while the eggs cook and you end up with a unique, sweet and savory, one dish breakfast, perfect for lazy weekends and brunches


Make ahead and refrigerate overnight, it bakes in only 25 minutes!

Almond Danish

1 can, 8 rolls, refrigerated crescent roll dough

3 oz. almond paste

3 T butter, softened

1/3 cup sugar

sliced almonds for garnish

almond sugar glaze*

Combine sugar, butter and almond paste to make a spread.  Separate dough into triangles and spread with almond paste mixture.

Place on a parchment lined baking sheet and bake at 350 for 12-15 minutes or until golden.  Cool slightly and then garnish with an almond sugar glaze and sliced or chopped almonds

*mix 3 T of powdered sugar with enough milk or cream, and a touch of almond extract, to make a glaze to drizzle over the danish

for Buried Almond Danish Breakfast Bake, roll up and place in a greased baking dish, see complete recipe below

Buried Almond Danish Breakfast Bake

Prepare rolls as in recipe for Almond Danish, but DO NOT BAKE

6-8 strips bacon, cut into pieces

1 cup, 4 oz. grated sharp cheddar cheese

5 eggs, beaten

1/2 cup milk

salt & pepper

Fry bacon in skillet over medium heat, stirring every few minutes.  Bacon cut up into pieces cooks more quickly and evenly than strips.  Bacon will cook in the time it takes you to prepare the rolls.  Drain bacon pieces on paper towels

Mix eggs with milk and beat.  Season with salt and pepper.  Add bacon and cheese

Place rolls into greased baking dish.  Pour egg mixture over all.  Redistribute bacon pieces if necessary. Cover and refrigerate overnight.  Bake at 375 degrees until cooked through and set, about 25 minutes.

Serves 6-8.  Reheat leftovers, 1 minute per serving, in the microwave.
