By the way, this is the perfect things to serve for breakfast on those days when you just don’t have it in you to tell your kids, “Hurry up! The bus is going to be here in just a minute! Hurry up! Eat your breakfast, quick! Hurry up! Yes, you have to brush your teeth! Hurry up!”
See, if you serve Pumpkin Breakfast Cheesecake, which looks like serving pumpkin pie, you won’t have to tell your kids to “Eat your breakfast, quick” part of your morning “hurry ups”. I still haven’t found a way to get them to brush their teeth quickly! If you have any tips please pass them on!
This cheesecake took about 5 minutes to throw together (thanks to crescent rolls) and about 20 minutes to bake. It’s such a fun breakfast to serve all through the fall season. In fact, if you are looking to add a little more pumpkin to your Thanksgiving Day, get a head start on it and make this for breakfast.
I share lots of recipes with you guys. I’m telling you, this one is GOOD! I’m an avid cheesecake lover and Pumpkin Breakfast Cheesecake ranks right up there with my other top cheesecake recipes. I love this one. I think you will too!
