Easy breakfast braid

Breakfast is a favorite in our house. We often enjoy breakfast for dinner. Since we had family visits from out of town last week, I needed something delicious for breakfast that was easy and could feed a fairly large group. Months ago, I had seen a breakfast braid on Betty Crocker that caught my eye. I knew it would be a great idea for breakfast when the holiday came. Now that I realize how easy they really are, we will do them often.

I threw a couple of these crescent braids into the oven in no time. I knew they would be perfect because I can cut these braids like a Stromboli. When you cut them, they make a perfect hand breakfast. I ask everyone to help themselves and allow them to use napkins so as not to create a lot of dishes to wash later. PERFECT!

This breakfast braid looks so chic after baking. Don't let the classy look intimidate you. This will be one of the easiest recipes you will ever make. Just grab some growing leaves, eggs, butter, cheese, and your favorite omelette ingredients. We love ham and vegetables. This would also be great with bacon or sausage and even some tomatoes or mushrooms too! Don't be afraid to carry it.

Note that my ingredient image shows a growing roll mass, but I actually used crescent sheets for my braid.

INGREDIENTS 1 can of crescent roll 6 eggs 3 tablespoons butter 1/2 cup diced ham 1/4 cup diced onion 1/4 cup diced bell pepper 1 cup grated cheddar cheese

ADDRESSES Preheat oven to 375. Unroll and roll out the dough onto a baking sheet. Spread half of the ham over the middle third of the dough. Melt 1 tablespoon of butter in a skillet over medium heat. Sauté onions and bell peppers until tender. Remove the vegetables from the pan and set aside. Beat the eggs until well mixed. Melt another tablespoon of butter in the pan. Stir the eggs until ready. Spread the scrambled eggs in half the batter over the ham. Spread the remaining ham in half the dough over the eggs. Spread the onions and peppers in half the batter over the ham. Spread the cheese in half the dough over the vegetables. Cut each side of the dough into 1/2 ″ strips. Alternating the sides, fold the strips inward into a braid. Melt the remaining tablespoon of butter. Brush the top of the braid with melted butter. Bake for 20-25 minutes until golden.
