Recipe Review: Santa Fe Breakfast Ring

Like most of my recipes, I found this one on Pinterest. I was looking for something to make for breakfast for my Sunday school class at church. When I first found this recipe I assumed that it was higher in PointsPlus values and that I would not make it on a regular basis. However, I decided to go ahead and put the original recipe into the Weight Watcher's Recipe Builder. I was right, it was higher in PointsPlus values. So, I began to make some healthy substitutions to see if I could get the PointsPlus values to come down. When it was all said and done, this breakfast ring came out to be only 5 PointsPlus per serving!!

I really enjoyed this recipe and to be honest, I did not make it for breakfast. Earlier this week Jon and I had this for dinner! Jon enjoyed this recipe just as much as I did and said that I could make it again sometime soon! You know that if Jon enjoyed this recipe, it's good! I hope you enjoy it too!!

The Ingredients
Preheat the oven to 375 degress

Scramble your eggs on the stove top.

Line a pizza pan with parchment paper.

Lay out crescent rolls on parchment lined pan.

Cook turkey bacon according to the instructions on the package.

Lay cooked turkey bacon on top of the crescent rolls.

I was supposed to add 1/3 of my cheese. However, I just added all of my cheese right on top of the bacon.

Next, I add your scrambled eggs on top of the cheese layer.

Finally, fold the crescent rolls over. You can add cheese on top, but I did not do that.

Bake for 17 minutes or until the crescent rolls are done and golden brown.

Serve hot!

I recommend garnishing with fresh salsa and/or some chopped parsley.
