Easy Breakfast Braid
Breakfast is a favorite at our house. We quite often enjoy breakfast for dinner. Since we had family visiting from out of town last week, I needed to have something yummy for breakfast that was easy and could feed quite a large group. Months ago, I had seen a Breakfast Braid over on Betty Crocker that caught my eye. I knew it would make for a great breakfast idea come holiday time. Now that I realize how easy they really are, we will be making them often.
I tossed a couple of these easy crescent braids in the oven in no time at all. I knew they would be perfect because I can slice these braids just like a Stromboli. When you slice them up, they make a perfect hand held breakfast. I ask everyone to help themselves and allow them to use napkins so I do not create a bunch of dishes to be washed afterwards. PERFECT!
This breakfast braid looks so fancy after it is baked. Do not let the fancy look intimidate you. This will be one of the easiest recipes you will ever make. Just grab some crescent sheets, eggs, butter, cheese, and your favorite omelette ingredients. We love ham and veggies. This would also be great with bacon or sausage and even some tomatoes or mushrooms too! Do not be afraid to load it up.
Note that my ingredient picture shows crescent roll dough but I actually used crescent sheets for my braid.
