Easy Breakfast Cheese Danish

Good morning everyone! Today, I wanted to share a special breakfast treat with you all – the Breakfast Cheese Danish. This is one of my favorite breakfast items and I love making it on weekends when I have some extra time.

So, let me set the scene for you. It’s a beautiful Saturday morning and I’m feeling lazy. I don’t want to go out for breakfast, but I still want something delicious to start my day. That’s when I remembered my grandma’s recipe for Breakfast Cheese Danish.

I got out of bed and headed to the kitchen to gather all the ingredients. I started by mixing cream cheese, sugar, and eggs together in a bowl until they were creamy and smooth. Then, I took out the puff pastry from the fridge and rolled it out on a floured surface. I cut the pastry into squares and placed them on a baking sheet.

Next, I brushed the squares with a mixture of eggs and water to give them a glossy finish. I spread the creamy mixture over each square, making sure to leave some room for the fruit filling.

Now, here’s the fun part – choosing the fruit filling. I had a variety of options – cherry, apple, blueberry, and blackberry. I decided to go with a mixture of cherry and blueberry, but feel free to get creative and use your favorite fruit.

I spooned the fruit filling over the cream cheese mixture, making sure to cover each square evenly. Finally, I sprinkled some ground cinnamon over the squares for a touch of extra flavor.

I popped the baking sheet into the oven and let the Breakfast Cheese Danishes bake for about 15 to 18 minutes. The smell of the warm, flaky pastries filled the kitchen and I couldn’t wait to try them.

When they were done, I removed the pan from the oven and let the Danishes cool on a wire rack. And the moment of truth… I took a bite and was blown away by the combination of the creamy, sweet filling and the flaky, buttery pastry. It was the perfect balance of flavors and textures.

I savored every bite and washed it down with a hot cup of coffee. It was the perfect start to my lazy Saturday morning and I felt so grateful for this delicious treat.

In conclusion, I hope you all give the Breakfast Cheese Danish a try. It’s a simple and delicious breakfast option that is sure to impress your family and friends. And if you do, let me know in the comments how it turned out for you.

  2. shirley A collins

    My husband is not a cream cheese lover. Could I add blueberries to the cream cheese? Then I would you use the smaller amount of Crm chse.

    • Dennis

      Try adding a good scoop of blueberry or other pie filling on top before serving.

      • April

        I’d thought about adding the canned cherry pie filling before baking. Thanks for reinforcing my afterthought.

      • Donna

        Dennis that was so rude!! She was nice enough to give us the recipe. If your unfamiliar with baking my I suggest you refer to you tube they can give you step by step. I think she needs an apology.

    • Betty Davis


    • Jill

      Glaze is just powdered sugar and water.

  3. Barbara Luckie

  4. Shirley Hall


  5. Tanara

    Directions on how to make the glaze would have been helpful.

    • Connie

      Love these recipes

    • Dennis

      Tamara, It gives you the 3 ingredients for the glaze. Really, what do you think you would do with these 3 items? Would you just put the three ingredients on top of the Danish or would you mix them together first to make a glaze first !

    • Chris

      Easy Peasy …..
      Measure any amount of powdered sugar, add any flavor of extract (depending on what’s on the dough) . Mix p.s., ex x milk to what consistency you want, thick or thin icing. Play with it till you get what you want. When I use cherries it’s almond extract. Blueberries x lemon extract. Apple filling use cinnamon powder for flavor.
      Hope this helps.

  11. Talley

    Whenever I need a glaze, I use white powdered sugar and a bit of milk just enough to make a smooth mixture. I also add, from time to time, a drop or three of lemon juice. It’s lovely and easy.

  21. O

    Are these 6 ingredients all of it besides the glaze which I know consists of 3 more ingredients? Also, besides the Crescent dough, I assume I just mix all the other ingredients together, correct? And then what temperature do I cook it at? The instructions portion of this recipe cannot be found or if there are more ingredients listed after the egg white. It makes it real hard to give you a thumbs up when you don’t give the entire recipe

  22. Mary J Peck

    I want to print the whole recipe with instructions without having to add the extension.

  23. Marie

    If they would have listed those three ingredients she probably would have known what to do with them.

  31. Pat Wood

    Looks great love to have the rest of Recipe don’t seam like you can never get it all

  32. Candy

    As a cook – I made this by combining the cream cheese, sugar vanilla and 1 egg together until smooth. Spread it out on one crescent roll and top and seal edges with the second crescent roll. Whip up the egg white and brush on top and bake per instructions on the crescent roll can. – Top with a mixture of powdered sugar and milk (as thick or thin as you want it ). It really isn’t rocket science – But, it is tasty. You can also put canned pie filling in the middle (your choice of flavors) with the cream cheese and bake too.
