Brandt Black Forest Ham Easter Brunch Ring


4 slices Brandt Black Forest Ham deli sliced and cut in half,
2/3 cup plus 1 tbsp. milk,
9 eggs slightly beaten,
1/2 red pepper chopped,
3/4 cup Mexican cheese blend shredded,
2 pkg. of crescent rolls,
freshly ground pepper and salt to taste


Preheat the oven to 375º F. Line large pizza pan with parchment paper. In medium bowl, beat 8 eggs and milk. Stir in bell pepper. Pour egg mixture into non-stick skillet. As mixture heats, portions of the eggs will begin to set. Gently push cooked portions with spatula to the outside edge of skillet. Avoid stirring constantly. As more egg sets, push it to the edge and place it on top of the already set egg mixture. Cook until eggs are thickened throughout but still moist. Unroll dough; separate into 16 triangles. On the pizza pan, arrange triangles with widest side in the center, overlapping into a star shape, leaving a 6” round circle in center of the pan. Crescent dough points will hang over edge of pizza pan. Press overlapping dough to flatten at the center. Sprinkle all of the cheese onto widest part of dough. Spoon eggs over cheese. Roll the 1/2 slices of Brandt Black Forest Ham and place at the very edge of the dough. Pull points of triangles over eggs and cheese, and tuck under dough to form ring (filling will be visible). Whisk the one remaining egg carefully brush dough. Bake 20 to 25 minutes or until deep golden brown. With broad spatula, carefully loosen ring from pizza pan; slide onto serving platter. Serves 6-8
