We all know that trying to get everyone ready for school, getting yourself ready for work and trying to feed everyone can be a struggle in the morning. So Jan is bringing you the picture perfect egg breakfast that is super easy and most importantly can be personalized for everyone in the family.
Picture Perfect Egg Breakfast
1 tube of croissant dough or refrigerated bread stick dough
6 eggs plus 1 egg for egg wash
2 tablespoons milk
1 1/2 cup grated cheddar cheese (more if desired)
Toppings of your choice (see below)
1-2 tablespoons melted butter
Salt and pepper to taste
OPTIONAL TOPPING SUGGESTIONS
Approximately 1/4 cup each
Chopped cooked bacon or sausage
Diced fresh or sun-dried tomatoes
Sliced black olives
Chopped turkey or ham
Cooked chicken (chopped or shredded)
Green or red peppers (sliced or diced)
In a greased shallow baking sheet (approximately 9 1/2 by 11 inch) line the rim with 6 to 8 of the bread strips, (twisted slightly) creating a bread frame of bread. (Pinch together bread sticks to form continuous frame.)
Next, make on horizontal and two vertical rows with remaining bread strips, creating squares, about 3 inches in diameter (for smaller square, make two horizontal rows and two vertical rows.)
Brush bread dough with slightly beaten egg. (This created a beautiful shiny finished dough frame and it helps to "glue" the bread strips together.
Fill each square with 1/4 cup cheese and 1/4 cup desired topping. In a medium bowl, whisk together remaining 6 eggs and 2 tablespoons of milk. Pour egg mixture over break picture frame and toppings, covering the bread. Add salt and pepper.
Bake at 350 degrees for about 20 minutes or until bread is golden brown and eggs are cooked.
Remove from over and brush melted butter over bread frame.
Slice in squares, using bread dough to frame each slice.
