Tasty Tuesday: Sausage & Egg Breakfast Ring

Today’s recipe is from Patti Watson at Pampered Chef.  This is a classic breakfast ring which is a great option for a busy  morning OR why not surprise mom on Mother’s Day!

INGREDIENTS

  • 11   eggs, divided
  • ¼ cup (50 mL) half & half
  • ¼ tsp (1 mL) salt
  • ¼ tsp (1 mL) black pepper
  • 2   red bell peppers
  • 4   green onions
  • 1 pkg (9.6 oz./272 g) fully cooked breakfast sausage (12 links)
  • 2 cups (6 oz./175 g) colby jack cheese, grated
  • 1 tsp (5 mL) olive oil
  • 2 pkgs (8 oz./250 g each) crescent rolls
  • 1 tbsp (15 mL) fresh parsley leaves

DIRECTIONS

  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F (190°C). In the Classic Batter Bowl, whisk 10 of the eggs with the half & half, salt, and pepper.
  2. Cut the bell peppers into quarters. Process the bell peppers and onions in batches in the Manual Food Processor until finely chopped. Transfer the mixture to the bowl. Process the sausage until finely chopped and add to the bowl.
  3. Microwave the mixture, uncovered, on HIGH for 6 minutes. Remove from the microwave and stir to break up the eggs. Microwave for 3 minutes, then stir. Microwave for 2 minutes, then stir. Set aside to cool slightly.
  4. Use the Microplane® Adjustable Coarse Grater to grate the cheese; set aside. Use the Chef’s Silicone Basting Brush to brush oil onto the White Large Round Stone.
  5. Separate the rolls into 16 triangles. Arrange the triangles on the stone with the wide ends in the center, slightly overlapping. There should be a 5″ (13-cm) opening in the center. The narrow ends of the dough will extend beyond the edge of the stone.
  6. Use the Baker’s Roller® to flatten the wide ends of the dough. Place the egg mixture over the wider sides of the dough in a circle. Sprinkle the shredded cheese over the eggs.
  7. Pull the narrow ends of the dough over the filling and tuck the points under the dough to form a ring.
  8. Separate the remaining egg and add ½ tsp (2 mL) of water to the yolk; mix. Use the basting brush to brush the top of the ring with egg wash. Bake for 30 minutes or until the top is golden brown.
  9. Use the Pizza & Crust Cutter to chop the parsley and sprinkle on top of the ring.

Have leftovers?  Why not freeze them to have lunch one day for work?  Pack your lunch in one of ThirtyOne’s many thermal lunch totes.  My favorite is the LunchBreak Thermal.  This s the perfect size to fit standard food storage containers, so it is a great lunch bag for work, school or just a day spent running around town. It also makes a great snack and drink bag for trips to the pool or beach. I love it can be personalized with your favorite icon or just your name.  It is approx. 8.5”H x 9″L x 6″D (15″L at top opening)

Tasty Tuesday – Apple Pie Bites

babies

I am not a fan of cold weather since I am always cold BUT I do love the Fall.  WHY? Because I can snuggle inside baking and cooking.  I used to do it a lot when Belinda was little BUT I do enjoy it especially for the holidays.  So starting today and every Tuesday through the rest of the year, I am going to do “Tasty Tuesday” sharing either an old time family favorite recipe or a new one.  Today’s recipe is courtesy of the Blond Cook.  A quick and easy dessert.  I mean who wouldn’t want an awesome dessert in less than 30 minutes.  The best part is that it can also be made Weight Watcher friendly with just a minor change or two.

So here is what you will need:

  • 1 (8-ounce) can Pillsbury Original crescent rolls or low fat
  • 1 small Granny Smith apple, cored and sliced into 8 (1/2-inch) slices or fried canned apples
  • 1/4 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon apple pie spice
  • 3 tablespoon butter, melted
  • 1/2 cup pecans (optional)

PREP TIME:15 minutes.  COOK TIME: 12 minutes. Serves: 8

Preheat your oven to 375 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.  In a small bowl, combine brown sugar and apple pie spice. Set aside.  Melt butter and toss apple slices in butter.  Set aside.  Arrange crescent roll triangles on baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Evenly distribute brown sugar mixture onto each triangle. Sprinkle each triangle evenly with the chopped pecans.  Place an apple slice on the wide end of each triangle. Wrap crescent roll dough around each apple. Brush each crescent roll with remaining butter. Sprinkle lightly with additional apple pie spice. Bake for 10-12 minutes,  Cool for 5 minutes before serving

How easy is that, right???  Having company or heading to a family gathering?  Make a double batch so everyone has some to take home.  Worried how you will carry them to the gathering?  Why not do it in style with Thirty One’s Perfect Party Set

Perfect party

Not only can you carry these awesome Apple Pie Bites but you can also bring a second dish in a fun, fashionable thermal. YES, this thermal will hold up to TWO 9×13 pans in one water resistant tote.  It has two handles with a handle grip.  Did I mention that it can be personalized so that no one can walk off with it and if they do, everyone will know it is yours!
