How to Make Ham Egg & Cheese Crescent Sandwiches

This recipe is super easy to make with only a few simple ingredients. Spray a baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray. In a large bowl, whisk together eggs and milk. Season with salt and black pepper to taste. Melt butter in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add egg mixture to the pan and cook over low heat until the eggs just set. Remove from heat.

Unroll one can of crescent rolls and roll into a rectangle on the prepared baking sheet. Add a layer of cheese slices, top with slices of deli ham, then top with scrambled eggs, chives, and more cheese. Unroll a second can of crescent dough and place on top of the cheese. Pinch together edges to seal. Brush olive oil over the top of the dough and sprinkle everything bagel seasoning over the top. Bake in a preheated oven until crescent dough is golden and cooked through. Let cool for at least 15 minutes before slicing into squares.
