It’s the first Feed Me Friday of 2013 and I’m in the mood for simple. You? Simple recipes that take normal ingredients and are guaranteed to be satisfying. And if they’re simple to eat now or save for later, that’s even better.
This week we’ve talked about asking God to help us Reflect before we rush too far into the new year. I’d love for you to join us for all or part of 2NEW ~ Planning for a great year. Next week we’re going to be asking God to help us Simplify.
Get Organized Resource
I found a great resource this week for getting organized at home. It even includes a treasure trove of simple worksheets for all things “home” in the back. Check out the e-book Getting it Together by Kayse Pratt. Click here to visit Kayse Pratt.. I found it so practical that I wanted to share it. It is especially useful for moms with kids at home, but so much of it is applicable for any woman’s home. I love what Kayse put together.
So here’s a simple weekend recipe with only 5 ingredients.
Crescent Breakfast Bundles
- 2 rolls of crescent rolls
- 1 egg (or 1 more if you want to do the egg white wash)
- 1 c. cheese, divided into 2 (I used a Mexican blend)
- 1 c. hashbrown potatoes (thawed) OR chopped up leftover baked potato
- 1 c. cooked/crumbled sausage OR leftover ham
7 Simple Cooking Steps
- Combine the sausage, potatoes, 1/2 c. cheese, and 1 egg.
- Press the crescent roll perforations gently together, and then cut each pair of once-triangles into 2 squares. I use a pizza cutter for smooth cuts.
- Put 1 heaping tablespoon of the breakfast mixture in the center of each square.
- Lift each of the 4 corners and pinch them together in the center, forming a bundle. Gently pinch the side openings together.
- If you want them to be extra buttery (It’s January … so let’s skip this) you could brush on melted butter … and then go for a walk. You could also spray on a little cooking spray (healthy option) or you could do what I do and brush on a little egg white, which makes them a little shiny (and another healthy option).
- Sprinkle the remaining 1/2 c cheese evenly over all the pockets. With 2 rolls of crescents, you should have 16 bundles.
- Bake at 375 degrees for 10 minutes. Let them cool a minute before serving.
SO nice served with a simple side of fruit, yogurt, or just a cup of coffee. They also make the perfect “grab and go” breakfast for kids who didn’t get up on time … or moms who never got to eat. They refrigerate and warm up well for a substantial, but simple, snack later in the day. I think these would be idea for a baby shower.
Here’s to hoping your weekend plate (and mine) will be filled with lots of simple, but satisfying food!
