Beccy is this week’s Mistress of Monday. Head over for the full list of participants.
Beccy has challenged us to give recipes. Right up my alley. This is my family’s favorite special breakfast. I only make it on Christmas Day and New Year’s Day. I might make it some other time but you’ll pretty much have to beg.
4 oz cream cheese
1/2 cup milk
1/4 cup chopped bell pepper (red makes for a nice color contrast)
2 tbls. chopped onion
2 packages (8 oz each) refrigerated crescent rolls
1/3 lb shaved deli ham
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
Preheat oven to 375 F
Place cream cheese and milk in bowl. Microwave on high 1 minute. Whisk until smooth.
Into bowl with cream cheese mixture, add: eggs, salt, pepper, bell pepper, onion. Cook mixture in a really big frying pan. Cook until the eggs are set but still moist.
I use a rectangular pizza stone but you can use a regular sheet pan.
On pizza stone, unroll the crescent rolls. Pinch the parts together that are perforated, so you have one big sheet. On the long sides, cut strips into the dough. Strips should be about 1 1/2 inches apart and three inches deep (leave a space in the center to put filling).
Down the center of the dough arrange:
sprinkle cheese on top
Now for those strips. Gently lift a strip and give it a twist. Do the same on the opposite side and pinch the two together in the middle. The idea is to make the top look braided. Do you know what I mean? I hope so, because I can’t explain it any better, cause I’m brain dead today. Do all of the strips like this.
Bake in the oven for about 25 minutes. Slice and serve.
The family thinks I’m Julia Child when I make this breakfast.
Don’t forget to check out the other culinary masterpieces at Beccy’s. Maybe my family will try something new this week!
