Denver Scrambled Braid – scrambled eggs mixed with ham and, red and green peppers, placed on a crescent roll sheet and topped with crumbled bacon and shredded cheese. This is one breakfast fit for a king!
Breakfast is one of our favorite meals.
Many times we’ll have pancakes for dinner and now that I’ve started making these breakfast braids, you can bet that we’ll be having these as well.
Just like the Taco Braid, it is really easy to make and is absolutely delicious. Mr. 365 said it was restaurant quality, but I don’t know if I’d go that far. haha I was pleased with the compliment though.
This is so easy to put together, you won’t believe it.
You’re going to start by rolling out the crescent dough into a 10 X 15 inch rectangle. Using a pizza cutter along each long side, slice strips that are about 1 1/2 inches in width and three inches long. Make sure that a strip of about 3 inches is left in the center for the eggs. At either end of the center, make two slices in about two inches deep. You’ll pull these pieces up over the end and wrap the adjacent strips over them to secure.
For this braid, I made the strips slanted, but it isn’t necessary. You can see that I did it differently with the Taco Braid and it still turned out wonderfully. You just want to make sure that all the food is tucked in and doesn’t escahpay, as Dory says.
Place the scrambled egg mixture along the center. Fold the end pieces up.
Evenly distribute the crumbled bacon along the egg and then do the same with 1/2 cup of the cheese.
Beginning at the top alternately fold the pieces of dough over the egg until you reach the bottom.
Sprinkle with the remaining 1/4 cup of cheese.
Transfer the braid on the parchment to a baking sheet and bake for 13 – 15 minutes until golden.
