As a mother, I feel like when I make an extra effort almost every night to provide a home-cooked meal for my family, I am going above and beyond and fulfilling my motherly duty. However, when said meals are prepped, cooked, and slaved over (while barefoot and pregnant, mind you), and the child refuses to eat it, a battle ensues.
Why wouldn't my child eat something made from eggs, bacon, cheese, and croissants? Sounded like a good idea to me. Well, he turned the meal into a hunt for bacon, leaving the discarded and half-chewed remainders of food on my plate or the table. So aggravating! He's normally a good eater... most of the time.
Despite the battle (and the bribery with a mini Cadbury egg), Mark and I enjoyed the actual dish. If you would like to attempt it with your family, here's the recipe:
Bacon, Egg, and Cheese Ring
1 can of crescent rolls
5 large eggs; scrambled
1 cup shredded Colby and Monterrey jack cheese
8 + slices of cooked, diced bacon (I say + because I think it's hard to have too much)
salt and pepper
1. Heat oven to 375 degrees. Cook bacon and eggs on stove top. Lay out crescents on a parchment-lined pizza pan in a star formation (the longer sides of each crescent on the inside with the pointed ends pointing out).
2. Place cooked bacon around the inside center of the ring. Top with about 1/2 the cheese, all scrambled eggs, salt and pepper, and remaining cheese.
3. Fold pointed tips of each crescent over the filling, and join in the center of the ring. Press all the points in the center down to seal them together.
4. Place in oven and bake for 15-17 (mine took 15) minutes, or until golden brown. Slice in between each crescent to make 8 individual pieces.
For my family (2 adults and 1 sometimes picky toddler), we only had 1 piece left.
Enjoy! And hopefully your family will love it.
