One Recipe - Breakfast and Dinner!

TastyTuesday200pix Welcome to my new home   Tasty Tuesday

I tried a new recipe last week that I think works equally well for breakfast or dinner. Since that is a rare find in my opinion, I had to share it with all of you!

I have no idea what the real title of this recipe is - I'm calling it "Ham and Cheese Pie." I got it off a woman from last year, and she got it from The Ultimate Southern Living Cookbook, so that's what I'm crediting!


Ham and Cheese Pie

1 8 oz can refrigerated crescent rolls
{I used biscuits because it's all I had; it came out okay
but I would definitely recommend the crescent rolls if you have them}

1 1/2 C finely chopped cooked ham

1 8 oz. package Monterey Jack cheese, cubed
{I used shredded Colby Jack and it turned out fine}

2 T grated Parmesan cheese

2 T finely chopped onion

2 large egs, lightly beaten

Unroll crescent rolls, and separate into 8 triangles. Fit 5 triangles into a 9-inch pie plate, pressing edges together to seal. Combine ham and remaining 4 ingredients; spoon into prepared pie plate. Cut remaining 3 triangles into thin strips, arrange them over mixture. Bake on lowest oven rack at 325 for 1 hour. Let stand 5 minutes before serving. {I let mine go for 40 minutes and it was a little dark - I would check yours after 30 minutes.}


I tried this last week because I was still trying to "Eat From the Pantry" and it called for ingredients I already had. I have to say that I was really impressed! My husband and I both liked it - I think it would have been even better with the crescent rolls, although the biscuit dough is a lot less fattening. :) I heated it up another day for breakfast, and it worked just as well! Since it only has 2 eggs, my husband was willing to eat it because it definitely does not have the consistency of a quiche.

As you can see, my biscuit dough didn't quiiiite stretch over the top, but here it is, already half-eaten before I thought to take a picture! Enjoy!
