A MEXICAN TWIST TO BREAKFAST PIZZA


I bought myself a new camera, not for Christmas, but for my wildflower and hiking hobby! So, this morning while we were engaged in cooking up a twist on our “breakfast pizza”, I made a few snaps of the yummy pizza being constructed!

The basics are the same, a roll of large Pillsbury “Big and Flaky” Crescent Rolls, a round pizza baking sheet or dish, some eggs, cheese, and some kind of meat!

While I gently coaxed the triangles of dough into the round shape of the Pampered Chef pizza dish, Judy chopped up some sandwich ham, cut and opened two rolls of Ole’ Mexican Food Chorizo Sausage, and half a small onion. In some EVVO she sautéed everything together until the onions turned translucent.

Having finished the dough, I then beat up 3 large eggs, added salt and pepper, and some diced jalapeños. I poured the mixture into the middle of the dough and worked it out evenly over the dough’s surface. I then took the skillet of ham, chorizo, and onions and sprinkled them over the beaten eggs. Finally, I layered on the Kraft Pizza Cheese!

I then popped the dish into a 375 degree pre-heated oven for about 20 minutes.

When the pie came out it had bubbled up in a few places, but as it began to cool it shrank back into a perfect pizza shape!

Let me tell you, coupled with our coffee, this was delicious!

We sat and watched CBS NEWS Sunday Morning, as we’ve been accustomed to doing since we were married almost 29 years ago! If you’ve never tried the taste of jalapeños with your morning coffee, you have missed an incredible taste sensation! The hot of the pepper and the coffee mingle romantically in your mouth…it can’t be described adequately, so just try…trust me!

Years ago, Mom used to go to HEB and get a Mexican Lasagna that was killer! Just like regular lasagna, only with refried beans and other Mexican stuff in there. They don't make it any more. Too bad!

Looks GOOD. I might make this when my in-laws come to town in a few weeks!
