  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Lightly grease a baking sheet.
  2. Unroll each tube of crescent dough, but do not separate rectangles. Place side-by-side on prepared baking sheet with long sides touching; press and seal seams and perforations. Arrange ham lengthwise down center third of rectangle.
  3. Beat cream cheese and milk in a bowl. Separate one egg, placing egg white aside. Stir egg yolk, remaining eggs, salt, and pepper into cream cheese mixture; fold in red pepper and onion.
  4. Melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat; pour egg mixture into skillet and cook until just set, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and spoon eggs over ham; sprinkle with Cheddar cheese.
  5. Cut 1-inch-wide strips towards the center to within 1/2-inch of filling on each long side of dough. Starting at one end, fold alternating strips at an angle across filling; pinch ends to seal and tuck under. Beat reserved egg white and brush over dough.
  6. Bake in preheated oven until golden, 25 to 28 minutes.

This looked beautiful but I was disappointed with the crescent roll dough. I wouldn't recommend making this unless you are a fan of crescent rolls. I was not impressed with the flavor overall....

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 s...

This was an immediate hit! Requested at family gatherings for brunch, especially Christmas morning. I made the day before and baked the next morning.

This turned out great! I used the two crescent rolls to make two variations, one with sausage and cheddar and one with spinach, mushrooms and onions with goat cheese. Both came out excellent! I ...
