I was looking for something creative to make for my students on Dr. Seuss' birthday this year (Read Across America Day). I threw this together, and I got 25 thumbs up. Hopefully others enjoy it. Using egg whites was a personal preference- Feel free to experiment with regular eggs.

This is such an easy and yummy breakfast! I skipped the food coloring and followed another reviewer's suggestion and used an 11x7 pan with just one package of crescent rolls. I also used just four eggs, and added sliced jalapeno to half the pan. It also took quite a bit longer to cook - at least thirty minutes. This is a definite repeater for those mornings I don't feel like putting much effort into breakfast - thanks!
- 2 (8 ounce) packages crescent rolls
- 1 1⁄2 cups egg whites (I used the container of egg whites from the store)
- 3 teaspoons milk
- 1 cup shredded cheese
- 1⁄2 cup diced ham
- green food coloring
Directions See How It's Made
- Unroll crescent rolls onto a lightly greased cookie sheet (or use Reynolds non stick foil). Be sure to press the seams together well, and to roll up the edges about 1/2 an inch to form the crust.
- Mix the eggs in a bowl with the milk and 3-4 drops of green food coloring.
- Mix the ham in another bowl with 2-3 drops of food coloring.
- Carefully pour the egg mixture onto the crescent roll dough.
- Sprinkle on the ham evenly on top.
- Then cover with cheese.
- Bake at 350 for about 15 minutes, or until the crust is brown, and the cheese melts.
- Be sure to seal the dough well, I did not the first time, and the egg seeped under the crescent crust. It still tasted great though :).
