Breakfast foods ALWAYS taste good to me – any time of day! I love our blackberry cream cheese danish (we usually eat that every Christmas morning!) but I wanted to add a little extra protein and a little less sugar – so I substituted the center for eggs and bacon! It turned out so tasty and even my little girls gobbled it up!
Breakfast Braid Recipe
The perfect easy dish for colder days - and it makes a great breakfast or brunch!
In a medium bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, and salt and pepper.
In a large skillet, melt butter over medium heat, then add eggs to the pan. Scramble eggs for about 3 minutes, then add 1 cup of pico de gallo. Continue to scramble eggs until they are set up (about 3 more minutes), then set aside.
Open crescent roll dough and unroll as one large rectangle on a baking sheet than is lined with aluminum foil (or a baking mat). Dough should be almost the entire length of a half sheet pan. Press together to even out edges and seal any holes. Cut 1/2 inch diagonal strips up each side of the dough.
Spoon eggs down the center of the dough, then top with crumbled bacon and cheddar cheese.
Fold 1/2 inch dough pieces up over filling alternating sides to get a braided pattern.
Bake for 15-20 minutes until dough is golden brown. Serve warm.
