How to make Crescent Breakfast Squares

Step 1: Prepare the oven. Preheat it to 375 degrees.

Step 2: Use a cooking spray to grease a baking sheet. Set aside.

Step 3: Add the eggs and milk in a large bowl. Whisk until combined.

Step 4: Melt a tbsp butter in a large nonstick pan over medium heat. Once foamy, adjust the heat to low and add in the egg mixture. Cook until the eggs are just set, stirring frequently using a spatula. Season with salt and pepper before removing from heat.

Step 5: On a greased baking sheet, unroll a can of the crescent. Make sure to close any gaps by pinching the seams together to make a solid layer.

Step 6: Add the ham followed by the scrambled eggs, then, the chives, and cheese.

Step 7: Unroll another roll of the crescent on top and seal.

Step 8: In the microwave, melt the rest of the butter. Brush the top of the crescent dough with the melted butter and sprinkle with poppy seeds, sesame seeds, minced onion, and dried garlic. Lastly, season with flaky salt.

Step 9: Place inside the preheated oven and bake for about 25 to 30 minutes or until the dough turned golden and cooked through. Cover with foil, if the dough is browning over quickly.

Step 10: Remove from the oven and allow to cool for at least 15 minutes. Slice into squares and serve. Enjoy!
