Loaded with fabulous flavor and protein, this breakfast recipe will send your children (or yourself!) out the door with lots of energy to face the day.
Mama Steph's Savory Breakfast Pizza
8 fresh eggs
1 tsp mayonnaise (optional)
Mrs. Dash or other flavorful seasoning with no salt
1/2 tsp. red pepper flakes
8-10 slices of bacon
3 cups frozen shredded hashbrowns
one can of crescent roll dough
one cup shredded Pepper-Jack cheese
one cup shredded cheddar
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a 9×13 casserole dish with cooking spray.
Open crescent rolls, and lay them (there should be 8 in a can) in the bottom of the casserole dish. Use your fingertips to spread the dough across the bottom of the dish as you would pizza dough, until you have one continuous sheet of dough.
Make egg mixture: in a mixing bowl, crack 8 large eggs, and add the mayonnaise and red pepper flakes, and about 1 tsp of Mrs. Dash. Whisk together until combined and bubbly.
Fry bacon, cool, and then roughly chop with a large knife, or, to save time, use pre-cooked bacon.
Grate the two cheeses together on a plate.
Spread the frozen hash brown potatoes evenly across the crust.
Sprinkle half of the cheese over the top of the hash browns.
(If desired, add veggies next: chopped green onions, thinly sliced mushrooms, bell pepper, etc.)
Pour the egg mixture evenly across potatoes and cheese.
Sprinkle with salt and pepper, being careful not to over-salt.
Arrange bacon pieces evenly over the top.
Tip: if you'd like to add some vegetables to this, I found that slicing some green onions and Roma tomatoes and topping the dish with them was a delicious addition. If you use tomatoes, slice them and then drain between sheets of paper towels to remove excess juices first.)
Place in hot oven, and bake for about 35 minutes (until no longer jiggly and wet in center.)
Top with the other half of cheese, and stick back in the oven until the cheese is melted, 5-6 more minutes.
Remove from oven, and allow to set up for 5-10 minutes before slicing.
Cut into squares and serve.
TIPS: Time-savers include using pre-grated cheese, pre-cooked bacon, and even Egg Beaters instead of cracking the eggs out one-by-one. Also, you can use turkey bacon or vegetarian "bacon' if you prefer. Sausage crumbles would work well, too.
If your family doesn't like the heat of red pepper flakes or pepper-jack cheese, feel free to omit or switch out with other cheese or seasoning.
