I love cooking with crescent rolls. Love it! But the only time I get to use them for breakfast is if I take a day off work and get up and cook. Which I did this week. Lots to get ready for Christmas don’t you know. One of my favorite things to eat at breakfast are the mini quiche like egg biscuits I made a while back. So why not just put it in a pan instead of muffin tins? So to shake things up a bit I did just that.
Now the next time I make this I won’t put any crescent rolls on the top of the dish because that was too much. I just had them leftover and thought why not add them to the top. I didn’t want to throw them away. I mean what else was I going to do with them. Well, in hindsight maybe a couple of “crescent rolls” would have been nice to have. Doh!
Egg and Crescent Roll Breakfast Casserole
1 pkg Reduced-fat Pillsbury Crescent rolls
5 slices cooked bacon, crumbled (you could also use sausage or ham)
3 eggs (I used four and that was too much)
1/4 c Green and Red pepper, diced
1 1/2 Tbsp milk
Salt and pepper, to taste
1/4 c Cheddar cheese, shredded
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Spray a 8×8 baking pan with Pam spray. Combine eggs, milk, peppers in a bowl and whisk together. Season with salt and pepper. Unroll your crescent rolls (don’t take apart) and put them on the bottom of the pan and a little should come up the sides. You will need to cut some of the dough off and hmmm might as well make some crescent rolls with it. Sprinkle about 1/2 of the bacon crumbs on top of the dough. Pour your egg mixture on top of the bacon. Sprinkle the remaining bacon and cheese over egg mixture. Bake for 20-25 minutes.
Note: You can also cook your bell peppers in a sauté pan with a little bit of olive oil before mixing with the eggs.
3 red potatoes, diced into small pieces
1 Tbsp olive oil
1/4 c Green and Red pepper
1/2 tsp parsley
1/2 tsp basil
Salt and pepper to taste
Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium high heat. Add peppers, potatoes and spices. Cover and cook over medium heat for about 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.
