  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  2. Beat milk and cream cheese together until smooth. Mix in eggs, and season with salt and pepper. Heat a lightly oiled skillet over medium high heat and cook egg mixture until eggs are almost set.
  3. Arrange the crescent rolls from one package into a rectangle shape on top of a lightly greased cookie sheet. Place rolls from remaining package along the edges of the two long sides of the rectangle, with the broad half of the rolls on top of the first layer of rolls, and the pointed ends extending over the sides of the pan.
  4. Arrange the ham in a layer down the center of the dough. Spoon the cooked egg mixture on top of the ham and then sprinkle the cheddar cheese on top of the eggs. Bring the corners of the rolls together over the cheese to form a 'braid' shape.
  5. Bake in preheated oven for 25 to 30 minutes, until cheese is melted and rolls are golden brown.

Love it! Works fine with skim milk & fat free cream cheese. I skip the cheddar inside but sprinkle some on top a couple minutes before it comes out of the oven and let it melt. When the kids a...

The final result was great, but I needed a little more detail in the recipe. I was unable to follow the instructions for placement of the dough for braiding. A picture may have helped. More d...

This was really easy and good. My husband and toddler really liked it. :) I would add some onion or peppers..maybe a little tomato next time..sausage would be really good too I bet. The only oth...

Easy to make and delicious! Cream cheese with eggs has always been my favorite (not enough people know about this!) so I'm glad to see it used in a recipe. One thing to keep in mind - try using ...

Kids loved, easy to make! The only change I made was to use 4 oz of chive/onion cream cheese.

I made this for Father's Day and all my guys loved it. I added some sauteed onion and tomato as well. My hubbie said that he would have diced the ham. I used a glazed ham from leftovers. You...
