Okay so the kids have been out of school for over a week now. I am trying to figure out a schedule that works for me and them because it usually takes me a few weeks to get used to a new routine. Of course they are already bored and letting me know there is nothing to eat in the house or all the food is the “same old same old”. I was tired of hearing them complaining the other morning, so I came up with this quick breakfast bake using ingredients I had on hand. There are many versions of this recipe on the web, but none topped with sausage gravy. Yum!!
The great part about this recipe is you can add any ingredients your kids like. They could even make this themselves. Quick and easy and maybe the kids will not complain for a couple of days.
- 1 can of Pillsbury crescent rolls (or the seamless dough sheet). I use the reduced fat version.
- 1 cup cooked bacon, diced (you can add ham or cooked sausage if you like)
- 6 eggs
- 1/2 cup milk
- Pinch of Salt & Pepper
- 1 1/2 cups shredded Colby-Monterey Jack cheese blend or mild cheddar (6 oz)
- 1 (8 oz) package Sausage Gravy (Optional) (I used Odom’s Tennessee Pride. I keep a few of these on hand in the freezer.)
- 1/2 cup red or green peppers, diced
- 1/2 cup onions, chopped
- 1/2 cup mushrooms, sliced
- 1/2 cup green onions. sliced thin
- Preheat your oven to 375°F.
- Spray bottom of 13 x 9 baking dish with cooking spray.
- Press crescent roll dough across the bottom of dish, saving two triangles for lattice top. Set aside.
- Cook bacon in pan or microwave until crisp. Drain on paper towels.
- Whisk eggs in a small bowl with milk, salt and pepper.
- Spread chopped bacon over your crescent rolls in the pan. Pour your egg mixture on top of the bacon.
- Sprinkle with cheese.
- Place remaining pieces of crescent dough in strips on top of egg mixture.
- Place dish in the oven and cook for 22 to 30 minutes.
- Meanwhile microwave sausage gravy per package directions.
The edges will be brown and the center will be set when it’s done. Top with gravy and serve.
Hopefully this keeps the kids happy for a few minutes.
