EZ Christmas Breakfast

Welcome to my kitchen. I'm so glad y'all are stopping by. If you've been here before, you know that I have a kitchen because it came with the house. If you're new here, let me introduce myself. Martha, I ain't. My name is Rachel. I work full time and believe in spending as much time as I can with my kids. This includes holidays. Who wants to miss the kids fighting over their new toys or the search for the new, now-missing GI Joe?

I want to give you two of my tried and true recipes today. Now, you're wondering why would I want a recipe from someone that doesn't cook? I would like to point out that I can cook. I just choose not to. Try the recipe. Trust me. You'll love it!

Ok, here goes.

Breakfast Pizza (One of the first recipes I collected. Recipe from my Aunt Helen. This can be made the night before, refrigerated, and baked the next morning.)
2 cans crescent rolls
1 lb. sausage, browned
6 eggs, beaten
12 oz. Mozzarella cheese
12 oz. cheddar cheese

Spray pan with cooking spray. Spread crescent rolls in pan. (I use a cookie sheet that has slightly higher sides. A regular cookie sheet will do, however.) Sprinkle/crumble sausage over crescent rolls. Pour uncooked scrambled eggs over sausage. Top with cheese. Bake at 350 for about 20 minutes.

Breakfast Ring (Sometimes called Monkey Bread) (Tradition at Kev's family's Christmas--recipe from my mother-in-law)
2 cans biscuits
1/2 cup melted butter
3 T brown sugar
6 maraschino cherries cut in half
1/4 cup nuts
mixture of 1/2 cup sugar, 1 tsp. cinnamon

Preheat oven to 375. Pour 3 Tbsp. of butter into a tube pan. Sprinkle with 3 T sugar, cherries, and nuts. Cut biscuits in half and dip in butter. Then, roll biscuits in sugar mixture. Make two layers of biscuits in the pan. Pour remaining butter over top. Bake 25 minutes. Allow to stand one minute, then invert on plate.

That's it. They're easy, but I promise they'll become favorites at your holiday breakfast/brunch! It works for us. To see everyone else's tips, check out Rocks in my Dryer HERE. To see how I manage to get alone time with my husband, do all the Christmas shopping/wrapping, and stay semi-sane, check out last week's post HERE that I was unable to link up. HAVE A GREAT WEEK!

I've wanted the recipe for that breakfast pizza forever. And who doesn't like a slice of that monkey bread? (Although, I do prefer to pinch pieces off rather than slice it.)

We always make gooey sticky pull-aparts with rhodes rolls and butterscotch pudding mix. I might add that pizza to the menu this year though. YUM! And we could use something savory to cut the sweet. Thanks for posting!
