I’ve been perusing Pinterest lately and came across a few recipes for breakfast pizza. It got me thinking about the breakfast pizza in our cafeteria when I was in grade school. It probably isn’t served anymore…don’t get me started… Anyway, I found a few recipes and decided to give it a go. I gave it my own twist to pay homage to the cafeteria ladies of yore. And here we go!
- Crescent Rolls (2 tubes)
- 6-8 Pieces of bacon (cooked and crumbled)
- 1 C Cheddar shredded
- 6 Eggs
- 1 Can Country Gravy
1. Start by preheating the oven to 400°. Take the crescent rolls out and put them on a non stick jellyroll pan. Lay them close together and press the seams so they make one continuous piece of dough. You could probably use one can but we do like our bread so I used two. Also, I used a store brand and the quality wasn’t so great. I’d probably use the more expensive brand next time. It sounds like Pills-Berry. Anyway, bake the crust about 5-7 minutes,
2. Fry your bacon. I used really cheap bacon because I knew it was sliced thin. I wanted to crumble my bacon all over the top, so using the cheaper stuff was the way to go. Once you are done frying, create a shout out to your Mom and then crumble your bacon into tiny little bits.
3. When the crust comes out, spread the gravy over the top, leaving about an inch edge around the perimeter. Top with cheese, bacon and eggs. Bake for 12-14 minutes.
I ended up baking ours longer trying to get the middles done…because someone, who shall remain nameless, in our house doesn’t like runny middles! What?! I know… Next time I think I’ll scramble the eggs and see how that turns out. I hope the lunch ladies would be proud:)
And there you have it! Ta Da! *Twirls and throws glitter*
