Breakfast Pizza

Sunday brunch idea for the day is a breakfast pizza.  Doesn't this look good?  Everything you need for a breakfast in one dish.

1 can crescent rolls
5 or 6 pieces cooked bacon
1 cup fried broken up cooked breakfast or Chirico sausage
1 medium potato, peeled and shredded with a cheese grater
1 cup shredded cheese
4 eggs
¼ cup milk
Salt and pepper

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Fry up your bacon or use pre-cooked.  Drain on paper towel and let cool.  Using a kitchen scissor cut 1 inch pieces.  Fry up your broken up sausage and also let drain on a paper towel.

Boil a potato with the skin on until it is ½ cooked.  Do not over cook it.  Time will depend on the size of the potato.  Peel the potato after it has cooled.  It peels easily.  Grate the potato or if you like you can use a cup of unthawed frozen hash browns.

Separate the crescent roll triangles on a baking sheet and press together to form a round crust. Crimp the edges to form a rim. Make the rim as large as possible to avoid the egg mixture from overflowing.

Cook crust in the oven 5 minutes.

In a bowl whisk and scrabble together your eggs, milk, and a pinch of salt and pepper.

Sprinkle your pizza with the shredded potato, your bacon, sausage and cheese. Pour egg mixture on top.

Cook 15 to 20 minutes until egg is set.

Apple Crisp Pizza

I’m still trying to use up some of my canned apples, so here is a breakfast fruit pizza for you.

1 can crescent rolls
1 can of canned apples
1 tsp. cinnamon to canned apples if needed

1/2 cup flour
1/3 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 cup salted butter

1/2 cup caramel topping
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Lay out your rolls in a circle and pinch together.  Roll pastry to thin out and bring together.  Fold up the edges to give the pizza a bit of a raised crust. Arrange the apples in a single layer over the pie crust to completely cover it.

Cook crust in the oven 5 minutes.

Using your hands, combine the flour, brown sugar, oats, cinnamon, and butter in a bowl.. Sprinkle topping evenly over the apples.

Bake at 350 degrees for 25 to 30 minutes or until the edges of the dough are nice and brown. Remove from oven and immediately drizzle with caramel topping.   Cut into pizza slices and serve warm with ice cream.  

Variation:  You can make this with cherry, blueberry, or strawberry pie filling also   (what ever fruit you have in a can).  Peaches would be nice too, but don’t forget to add a little cinnamon. The drizzle should be nothing more than a simple runny frosting glaze of powdered sugar, milk and vanilla.  You could also make it a cream cheese frosting by adding cream cheese.  Make it running enough to flow out of a plastic bag; cut a hole in the corner and drizzle on top. 

Set out both pizzas with some fresh fruit and you have a beautiful breakfast or brunch buffet.

Enjoy your Sunday.  Be happy and may God bless you and yours.
