In our home, when we find a new event to celebrate we are always very excited.
We love all the research and exploration of the traditions or customs behind any event we are about to celebrate for the first time.
We love the decorating and all of the creative challenges that come along with it, but one of our family’s favorite parts of a new celebration is trying new foods.
It feels so adventurous to try new things, even if it is from the safety of your very own dining room!
At the same time, we often find that the original or traditional recipes can be intimidating! That is where more interpretive ‘quickie’ recipes come in handy.
We planned on combining a few of our favorite recipes, hoping to cross a Monte Cristo recipe with our favorite Stuffed French Toast Bake recipe.
Then we found this awesome recipe on Pinterest which seemed to do exactly that, so we gave it a try (with just a few very minor alterations) and it was exactly what we were trying to create, and it made a perfect festive treat for our Kentucky Derby Soiree.
So here’s what you’ll need!
1 Roll of Crescent Rolls (8oz)
1lb of Turkey Breast (lunch meat)
10 Slices of cooked Bacon
8 slices of Swiss Cheese
3 Roma Tomatoes
4 Eggs (beaten)
We found all of these items at Aldi, so the prices were great!.
The grand total is $11.55 if you don’t have any of the ingredients already, and there will be lots of extra ingredients left over (8 eggs, 5 tomatoes, and some bacon, turkey and swiss cheese.)
First, line an 8 inch pan with foil – it’ll make clean-up time a breeze!
Then open up the crescent rolls. I always scream when I do this. That explosion when the can bursts scares me EVERY time!
Unroll and separate the dough into two large squares. Place one square on the bottom of the pan and reserve the other square for the top(pictured above).
It is sooooo delicious! We’ll definitely be making this one again!
