Ingredients

  • 2 tubes (8 ounces each) refrigerated crescent rolls
  • 4 ounces thinly sliced deli ham, julienned
  • 4 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 8 eggs
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Dash pepper
  • 1/4 cup chopped sweet red pepper
  • 2 tablespoons chopped green onion
  • 1 teaspoon butter
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese

  • 2. In a large bowl, beat cream cheese and milk until smooth. Separate one egg; set egg white aside. Beat in the egg yolk, salt, pepper and remaining eggs to cream cheese mixture. Stir in red pepper and onion.
  • 3. In a large skillet, melt butter; add egg mixture. Cook and stir over medium heat just until set. Remove from the heat. Spoon scrambled eggs over ham. Sprinkle with cheese.
  • 4. On each long side of dough, cut 1-in.-wide strips to the center to within 1/2 in. of filling. Starting at one end, fold alternating strips at an angle across the filling. Pinch ends to seal and tuck under.
  • 5. Beat reserved egg white; brush over dough. Bake at 375° for 25-28 minutes or until golden brown. Yield: 6 servings.
