Step 7 –Unroll one can of the crescent roll dough and press it into the bottom of the prepared baking sheet. Pinch the seams together to form a solid layer of the pastry, leaving no gaps.

Step 8 –Evenly layer the ham on top of the crescent roll dough layer.

Step 9 –Add the cooked egg mixture, the chives, and the cheddar cheese on top of the ham layer.

Step 10 –Unroll the remaining can of crescent roll dough and add it to the top of the cheddar cheese layer. Pinch the seams together to form a solid layer of the pastry, leaving no gaps.

Step 11 –In a small microwave-safe bowl, add the remaining butter and melt in the microwave on high heat.

Step 12 –Use a pastry brush to brush the melted butter over the top of the crescent roll dough layer.

Step 13 –Evenly sprinkle the poppy seeds, the sesame seeds, the minced onion, the dried garlic, and the sea salt on top of the buttered crescent roll layer.

Step 14 –Bake the breakfast squares until the dough is golden and cooked through, about 25-30 minutes. Cover the dish with aluminum foil if the dough is browning too quickly.

Step 15 –Let the breakfast squares cool, about 15 minutes.

Step 16 –Cut into squares and serve.
