Sausage & Egg Breakfast Crescent Rolls

By  | Last Updated:  

Breakfast in bed (yawn). Isn’t that a nice phrase? Rumpled sheets, bedhead, and a tray full of exquisite dainties delivered alongside a single bloom in a silver vase. Except…what if that breakfast in bed comes from your unsupervised four-year-old? That’ll open your eyes.

Life is all about perspective. It used to seem more black and white to me. But then—motherhood. Yeah, there are rainbows and sunshine. I also notice more grey areas.

Like, when your little one does his best to surprise you, how can you groan with the realization that there is a colossal mess waiting for you? You can’t. I can’t anyway.

And how do you choke down his menu choices?  With a smile. And a resolve to get up earlier and do it yourself!

With busier schedules in full swing, my boys have heard me say starting the day with a good breakfast makes a difference. I really believe that.

But it can be a challenge to get a satisfying weekday breakfast on the table that doesn’t take too many of those precious early morning minutes.

Since my boys are willing assistants, one of my solutions is to supervise simple jobs they can do while I take care of the rest. Plus up ready-made ingredients like Johnsonville Precooked Sausage Links and crescent rolls and everybody’s happy and fueled for the morning activities.

If you want extra sausage, it’s easy to pop the Johnsonville sausage links in the microwave. They only take 40 seconds to heat up.

Who needs breakfast in bed when cute two and four-year-old chefs are waiting in the kitchen? Not me!
