I made this for a brunch for 8 ladies and they adored it. It was beautiful and delicious.
p.s. I could have sworn that I read reviews on the recipe before making it, but they all seem to have disappeared! There were even pictures of the finished result and they are gone too...and no, I'm not talking about the very similar "Ham Breakfast Braid" - the pictures there aren't even close to the ones I saw. I printed the recipe, and it is attributed to someone else. Whatever, the end result is FABULOUS and I highly recommend.
Great recipe. I tweak it a it to fit my family's taste. No pepers or cream cheese and it still comes out great. You can use this and add what ever you want to fill it with and it still comes out great.
What a great recipe idea! Saw this and had to modify it to my taste. First, didnt want to make a big one so only used one can of crescent roll dough, then did the ham layer, a couple scrambled eggs (with cheese mixed in) layer and a layer of thawed frozen spinach. Sprinkled some blue cheese along the top and closed it up as directed. Brushed with butter and baked. Wow! What a great breakfast treat, Hubby and I ate all but two slices. I am thinking of several options for the filling that I will try (diced tomatos, olives, mushrooms)-the possibilities are endless. I also am thinking maybe some cream cheese filling with blueberries mixed in to make it into a type of danish. Thanks for posting this great recipe.
Not bad. Incredibly easy; I've done breads like this before. If you're hesitating because you think it's complicated and hard, don't. It really isn't. You can do an uneven number of slices so they don't match and it will still come out gorgeous. Since I've made very similar recipes before, I didn't worry too much about adjusting the ingredients because I didn't have everything called for. I brushed pesto on the bread first, then used a Laughing Cow cheese (2 wedges) as the cream cheese layer, used vegetarian sausage, and scrambled three eggs, put on top, then closed the loaf and baked. Tasted good, looked pretty, and was mostly eaten at a work breakfast. Thanks for the recipe!
Loved this recipe! Looked good and tasted good. It's serves more than 6. I had 14 here for brunch, men and women and we ate two of these with some people having seconds.
This was an immediate hit! Requested at family gatherings for brunch, especially Christmas morning. I made the day before and baked the next morning.
Long ago introduced to this delicious breakfast served at one of our favorite waterway cafes on its Sunday brunch menu. In spite of halving this recipe since making for two, used about 1/3 cup of peppers (blend of red bell, sweet, and jalapeno peppers). Very versatile dish where other popular breakfast meats can be subbed for the ham (we sometimes use a spicy sausage), and other veggies can be added. The reason for cutting the dough into strips is to eliminate overlapping dough since any underlying layer(s) will have a more doughy texture than the golden brown top layer. Knowing that, you can fold or cut the dough in any number of ways and still get excellent results. We serve this with a homemade finishing sauce. Served alongside some fruit, this makes for an elegant brunch. We would give this more than 5*, if possible. Thank you tiberlady for sharing this fantastic recipe.
This recipe only looks complicated, I found it very easy to do once I had got everything together. I would only add that if you are reducing the servings (I did from 6 to 3), that you not reduce the amount of butter needed for the skillet, and that you reduce the cooking time to 18-20 minutes depending on your oven, my bread was golden and ready around the 19 minute mark.
