I would like to make the breakfast mini quiches But I am gluten intolerant. What can I use in substitute for the crescent roils ?
Seems great can't wait to try it!
These were definitely a hit at the brunch baby shower today! I could only get around 30 out of the can of crescent rolls which meant I had filling left over. No worries saved the excess filling for us to make a few more for a quick breakfast.
Another hit for Christmas breakfast, made ahead then froze and taken out of the freezer first thing in the morning and placed in an oven on low, made in regular muffins tins, yum yum, I made it with ricotta.
Big hit in our home on Christmas Day! A little tedious, but yummy!
