Easy Breakfast Bake

I made a quick and easy breakfast on Christmas morning that you just might want to try yourself - maybe for New Year's Day brunch?

Breakfast Bake

1 lb of ground sausage, beef, or bacon - cooked and crumbled
1 pkg of refrigerated crescent roll dough
2 cups of shredded cheese
4 eggs
1 cup of milk
salt & pepper to taste

You'll start by greasing a 9x13 baking dish and preheating the oven to 425 degrees. Open a tube of crescent rolls and spread them on the bottom of the baking dish, pressing the dough to close the perforations.

Sprinkle the meat and cheese evenly over the pan. The recipe calls for ground sausage but we didn't have anything defrosted, and I was hungry, so I substituted some leftover Popeye's chicken tenders, cut up into tiny pieces. I also sprinkled on some fresh, chopped mushrooms.

In a mixing bowl, add the eggs, milk, salt, and pepper. Whisk them together until blended. We left out one egg and added a tiny bit of ranch dressing - maybe a half a tablespoon. I've discovered that the ranch dressing makes the eggs really fluffy. I also added a squirt of sriracha sauce for some kick.

Pour the egg mixture over the meat and cheese, and bake in the oven for 15 minutes or until set. Let the pan cool for 5 minutes before cutting.

How good does that look?

This recipe made enough for 2 people with leftovers for a snack later.

Hiya! I know this is kinda off topic however I'd figured I'd ask.
Would you be interested in trading links or maybe guest writing a blog article or vice-versa?
My site covers a lot of the same subjects as yours and I think we could greatly benefit from each other.
If you are interested feel free to send me an email. I look forward
to hearing from you! Wonderful blog by the way!

It's a two year degree program, usually divided into five semesters. Remember that you are usually limited to a number of sessions so you might want to consider paying out of your own pocket.

Aw, this was an exceptionally nice post. Finding the time and actual
effort to generate a superb article… but what can I say… I put things off a lot and never manage to get nearly anything done.
