I am here to share my recipe, as promised by Kevin….who by the way just did his FIRST blog post yesterday!!! I’m so excited and super proud to finally have him here with me officially 🙂
Side note: My glee at setting up his admin login yesterday was contained so he couldn’t see it but I was so happy I could have grabbed him and jumped up and down like a crazed person. He stares at me strange when I do that though…..so you’ll just have to imagine.
And a finalist in a recipe competition??
That’s almost too much for one day.
Anyhow a paragraph of side-trackedness later, the recipe!
This recipe was good. Not nearly as gourmet as Kevin’s but tasty. What started as a pizza on a stick idea turned into pizza bites on a stick which turned into mini calzones because I didn’t have any sticks haha.
p.s. don’t try to stick these on a stick….it would fail miserably.
With this digression they really didn’t fit the “Supreme Pizza with Eggs” requirement of the competition but we decided to send it in anyways. So pleased that Kevin’s was chosen…it has a much better likelihood of winning this competition (it’s REALLY good) and I get to go be the cheerleader instead of cooking in front of people 🙂
That being said. Make these soon. Make them for your kids….or your grandkids. Or when you are awake at 2 a.m. And unless you are a kid or really love ketchup…I wouldn’t dip them in ketchup.
Supreme Breakfast Calzone Bites
- 2 packages crescent roll dough
- 6 eggs
- 4-6 slices bacon or equivalent in sausage
- 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
- Grease from bacon or sausage
- 2 tablespoons flour
- 1-2 cups milk
- Salt and Pepper to taste
Additional Dipping Sauce Suggestions:
- Syrup ~ Ketchup ~ Hot Sauce
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- Cook bacon or sausage. Drain grease into small pot. Remove meat to plate.
- Scramble eggs. While still runny cover with cheese and crumble the meat over top. Mix thoroughly. Cook until still somewhat wet….eggs will finish setting in oven.
- Unroll crescent roll dough gently. Separate into rectangles….two triangles make a rectangle. Press the seam to combine the two sections together on each rectangle. Cut in half to make two square pieces of dough.
Make Pepper Gravy:
- Heat grease over medium heat. When hot add flour and whisk. Allow to bubble for two minutes. Quickly add 1 cup milk while whisking briskly. Simmer to thicken, whisking occasionally. Add milk to thin to desired thickness. Season with salt and liberal amounts of pepper.
- Place 1 tb gravy on each dough square. Add egg/meat filling.
- Bring sides up and pinch closed.
- Place pinched side down on cookie sheet.
- Cook for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown. Serve with choice of dipping sauces.
Try different cheeses, meats, or veggies! Mushrooms, onions, pepperoni, spinach, etc are all delicious.
