As I mentioned yesterday I read this article about the importance of eating a healthy breakfast. I have heard that statement so many times that it has lost its urgency in my book. For whatever reason, maybe the stars were aligned, after reading the article yesterday I realized some things need to shape up!
With all this in mind, I went to the grocery store on a mission to load my cart with affordable protein and whole grains. At the check out I realized that this “mission” was going to take some time and energy. I walked out of the store with ham, cheese and two containers of discounted Pillsbury Buttery Crescent dough. It was on sale for a buck! What could I say it was an impulsive move.
I was reassured by the fact that I knew Mr. Snail would have no problem eating something that was “butter flavored”. Myself on the other hand….*gagging in the background*
In the end my discounted ham, cheese and butter rolls cooked up quite nicely if I do say so myself.
How to make your own Buttery Crescent Goodness
Step 1: Have crescent roll dough and lay it out on the cutting board.
Step 2: Cut up ham and cheese into small bite size pieces. I cooked my ham before I baked it in the crescent roll.
Step 3. Lay the ham and cheese goodness in the center of the crescent roll dough
Step 4: Roll up the crescent roll so that no ham nor cheese is spilling out of the sides.
Step 5: Bake as directed on the package.
P.S: Because I am a sneaky cook, I unraveled the dough and mixed in Herb de Provence in the dough and sprinkled the filling with ground flax-seed. If you want to give it a little added flavor add dried herbs. If you want to make it healthier then add ground flax-seed but only a little tiny bit.
One last trick after the crescents had cooled I lined a wire cooling rack with freezer paper (shining side up) and placed the crescents on the rack. I then placed them in the freezer for a few hours till they were firm. I then transferred them to a plastic bag. Viola! You have a fresh homemade frozen grab and go breakfast!
Take that Starbucks!
