Sausage Egg and Cheese Crescent Ring FAQ
If you have questions about this delicious dish, then read on. The following FAQ answers the most commonly asked questions about the sausage egg and cheese crescent ring.
Is crescent dough the same as puff pastry dough?
Yes and no. Both bake up fluffy due to the folding techniques used in their production. However, crescent dough uses yeast as a leavening, while puff pastry dough actually uses the air produced by the baking process. Crescent dough is also lighter and fluffier than puff pastry dough.
Does crescent mean croissant?
Yes. Croissant is the French word for crescent. The names are used interchangeably.
How long will this crescent ring last in the fridge?
You can store it in an airtight container for up to 4 days.
Can you freeze the leftover breakfast crescent ring?
Absolutely. Let it cool to room temperature, then cut it into individual portions and wrap them tightly in a double layer of plastic wrap. Finally, place the wrapped pieces in an airtight, freezer-safe container or heavy-duty freezer bag for up to 3 months.
