food:: breakfast braid

Finally!

An original idea again!

Then of course I found someone else who had done something similar.  Curse you Pinterest!!!

OK ~ so I really don’t mean that.  I love you Pinterest.  You are a blessing and a curse.

But I really made the whole recipe up myself. Really I did.

And it turned out pretty tasty on the first try.

I have been really stuck on the whole spaghetti braid thing.  The guys ask me to make it about once a week.  Not that I actually make it that often, but they are not shy about asking.

Naturally, with the whole braid situation working for me, I had to find other meals that I could use with this delivery system.

Aha moment…breakfast!

 Perfection!

Breakfast Braid::

Preheat the oven to 450 degrees.

Make a double batch of Bisquick biscuits, and roll it out on parchment.  For that you need 4 1/2 c. Bisquick and 1 1/3 c. milk.

In a skillet – make some hashbrowns, add some cubed ham, and maybe some onions & green pepper (or chives and mushrooms), then add the eggs and get them about 3/4 of the way scrambled and set.  Obviously – there are unlimited possibilities – think along the lines that anything added to an omelet can go into your scramble.  I know I plan on getting creative with this part.  Asparagus and bacon.  Cherry tomatoes, monterey jack & a sprinkle of cayenne.  Broccoli, lots of broccoli.

Layer it on the dough, with some shredded cheese, salt & pepper; and cut wide strips down the sides.  Braid that puppy up and bake it in the oven for about 10 – 15 minutes, basically till you get your desired level of tanning on the biscuit dough.

While that is in the oven, get a handy-dandy packet or two of McCormick’s Country or Sausage Gravy mix cooked up on the stove.

And yes, it has like a bajillion calories, but it feeds at least 6 – 8 people and is oh-s0-yummy!
