Crescent roll dough is incredibly versatile and you won’t even be able to taste that specific taste everyone talks about with store-bought dough.  Instead, you’ll adore every salty bacon piece along with fresh maple syrup and caramelized brown sugar.

I’ll be skipping the overnight french toast casserole this year for Christmas and I’ll be making this easy Maple Bacon Crack.

If you’d like to skip the pecan pieces in this recipe, swap it out with more bacon. I mean, who doesn’t love bacon? I always have pecans stocked in the pantry and these nuts are a delicious addition to this breakfast pastry.

Ingredients

  • 8 slices bacon
  • 1 tube crescent rolls
  • 1/4 cup pure maple syrup
  • 3/4 cup light brown sugar, packed
  • 1/3 cup chopped pecan pieces

Instructions

  1. Cook bacon until soft; not crunchy. I baked mine in a 400 degree F. oven for 18 minutes. Drain bacon and chop; set aside.

    Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Line a large rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper. Spray with cooking spray.

    Roll out crescent roll dough onto parchment paper. Pinch seams to make a single sheet. Prick crescent roll dough all over with a fork.

    Spread half the maple syrup on top of the dough using a pastry brush. 

    Evenly spread 3/4 cup brown sugar on top.

    Top with chopped bacon and chopped pecan pieces. 

    Drizzle with maple syrup.

    Bake in oven 22-25 minutes.

    Allow to cool then cut into pieces and serve.
