I don't have a photo for this post, as it didn't occur to me to take one until the kids had devoured dinner! There was recently a very good sale on Pillsbury Crescent Rolls, and I bought several. I noticed the other day that I had some expiring in just a few days, so I came up with a recipe to use a can. It works with several types of leftovers, so I thought I'd post about it.
I took the Crescents out of the can and pressed them into a 13x9 glass pan I had sprayed lightly with cooking spray. I sealed all the seams by pushing the dough together and then placed it into the oven on 350° for about 5 minutes, just to start it baking.
While it baked, I beat 5 eggs in a bowl, and then stirred in about a half-cup of milk, a bit of salt, and a pinch of nutmeg.
When the crust came out, I tossed some cooked and crumbled bacon onto it. You could use any sort of leftovers for this - vegetables, meats, anything you'd consider putting into a quiche. After I had a good layer of bacon, I tossed in some shredded cheddar cheese and then poured the egg mixture over the top.
I baked this, uncovered, for about 20-25 minutes at 350°. It didn't take very long, as the egg layer was not very deep. I ended up with an egg bake/quiche of sorts with a wonderfully flaky Crescent crust. Some of the egg slipped beneath the crust, forming layered pieces that were pretty and tasty.
It was an easy dinner that the kids loved. We had pancakes on the side, per my daughter's request, and they ate it up! I love dinners like that!
