Breakfast Za

I know what you are thinking...what the heck is Za? Well Za is our way of saying pizza. Silly huh? I used to say it the good ole normal way...until I met Garrett and his family who called it za, now I call it za. Za is short. Za is easy. Our kids will probably say za. Not that pizza is an extremely long or complicated word.

Now that you further understand our weirdness, let's talk about how delicious this breakfast pizza really is! I mean, what's better than breakfast foods anyway? We both come from a family who often had breakfast for dinner, so anytime there are eggs, bacon, and sausage around, it is welcomed into our bellies with a smile on our faces.

Using the wonderful Pinterest, I discovered this recipe here. It called for Egg Beaters, low fat turkey sausage, and light cheese. Psh, yeah right. Not only did I already have pork sausage, full fat grated cheese, and regular eggs, I wasn't about make a reduced fat breakfast item! Don't get me wrong, usually I am all about reduced fat or lower calorie foods, but not for breakfast! It's early in the morning, you are allowed the real thing! : ) However, if you do want to make the lower calorie version you can click that link and it will take you to it! I'm sure it tastes great! But, if you are like us and already have most of the ingredients such as eggs and pork sausage, you can follow our recipe.

You will need:
* Only 4 ingredients!*

  • 1 Can of Crescent Rolls
  • Pork Sausage (We just eyeballed the amount, so use it as you would like!)
  • Grated Cheese (We eyeballed this too. It's up to you!)
  • 4 Eggs

You need to:

1. Open the can of crescent rolls and grease a baking sheet or dish. Place the rolls so that they make a half circle. You could make a full circle too if you used another can or maybe cut them in half. Ours formed a half circle, so that's what we made! Roll up the edges to make a crust.

2. Brown ground pork sausage in a skillet. Drain what grease you can and spread the sausage over the unbaked crescent rolls.

3. Crack 4 eggs in a small bowl and scramble with a fork. Pour them over the rolls and sausage. Some will probably run off the edges, ours did, but it didn't matter.

4. Sprinkle grated cheese over the whole thing. We like alot of cheesey goodness so we used quite a bit, but make it the way you like it!

5. Bake in a 375 degree oven for about 25 minutes or until crust is browned and cheese is melted.

Doesn't it look yummy?

Not the most photogenic, but yummy!

You can use a pizza cutter to slice it into triangular shapes if it doesn't pull apart on its own.

We each had a piece that morning and then I kept the leftovers for my early commute to work the next couple of mornings. It is great heated up in the microwave too!

Now back to beating my mother in law in our fantasy football game... : )

Oh, before I forget. I posted a Red Velvet Brownies entry to a linky party on a neat blog called A Creative Princess, and it was one of the top 5 most viewed so it was featured on her page!! To me, that's super exciting! : ) Thanks for featuring me Terri and thanks to her readers for checking out my blog!!
