TOTAL TIME: Prep: 35 min. Bake: 15 min. YIELD:12 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 tube (8 ounces) refrigerated crescent rolls
  • 1/2 pound bacon strips, chopped
  • 1/2 pound Jimmy Dean® Premium Pork Sausage Roll
  • 1/2 pound sliced fresh mushrooms
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 1 small green pepper, finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 8 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 package (3 ounces) cream cheese, softened
  • 1/3 cup sour cream
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 2 plum tomatoes, chopped
  • 1-1/2 cups (6 ounces) shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
  • Picante sauce and additional sour cream, optional

Directions

  • 1. Unroll crescent dough into a greased 13-in. x 9-in. baking dish; seal seams and perforations. Bake at 375° for 6-8 minutes or until golden brown.
  • 2. Meanwhile, in a small skillet, cook bacon and sausage over medium heat until bacon is crisp and sausage is no longer pink. Using a slotted spoon, remove meat to paper towels; drain, reserving 2 tablespoons drippings. In the drippings, saute the mushrooms, onion and green pepper. Remove and set aside.
  • 3. Heat butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add eggs; cook and stir until almost set.
  • 4. In a small bowl, beat the cream cheese, sour cream, garlic and Italian seasoning; spread over crust. Layer with eggs, sausage and bacon, sauteed vegetables, tomatoes and mozzarella.
  • 5. Bake at 375° for 15-18 minutes or until cheese is melted. Serve with picante sauce and additional sour cream if desired. Yield: 12 pieces.
