Bacon breakfast bake

Like all the “B’s” in this one???  Me to! ;~)

This past week at the house has been “eat what you’ve got week.” Here are the ‘rules.’

  • You can buy perishables–milk, eggs, bread, needs for babies/toddlers.
  • You cannot/should not buy any canned goods, meat, or anything else (unless life sustaining or you have a weird allergy).
  • You SHOULD eat only things from the depths of your fridge/freezer/cupboards.
  • Take the $$ you save and donate, spend on something else, splurge, date night, whatever…I donate the money. I pool it and give an annual donation to heifer international.

That being said, after making coffee, and spending enough time to evaluate the back of the fridge, PIC and I ate pretty well this week.  Pork chops, chicken, macaroni & cheese, eggs, and this breakfast.  The ingredient list is a bit of a hodge podge so bear with me and feel free to make substitutions as necessary.

This is a very easy recipe! The rolls cook up and blend with the egg mixture and everything bakes together.

You’ll need:

30 min.

  • 2 slices bacon
  • 1 c. leaf spinach
  • 1 green onion
  • 1 tube of crescent rolls
  • 5 eggs
  • 1/4 c. milk
  • 1 c. shredded cheese of choice
  • 1/2 t. pepper
  • non-stick spray
  1. Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Saute the bacon and green onion and let it cook down to desired crispiness.  Add spinach at the end to wilt it down and let some water out of it.
  3. Spray a 8×8 or 9×9 pan with non-stick spray and spread four of the crescent rolls  in the bottom, putting the seams together the best you can.
  4. Scramble the eggs, milk, pepper, and add cheese to the mixture.
  5. Spread in pan.
  6. Pour bacon/spinach mixture over the top.
  7. Bake for 20 min. until set up.
  8. Enjoy! The rolls create a nice bottom crust and also absorb into the egg, giving it a nice fluffy texture on top and a good, sturdy base.

What to do with the four crescent rolls?  May I make a suggestion??????  Nutella sweet rolls!!!
