Ingredients
  • 1 8 oz roll of organic crescent roll dough
  • 1 Tbsp butter
  • 1 finely diced large red pepper
  • 1 finely diced green pepper
  • 1 C finely chopped sweet onion
  • 1 C chopped ham
  • 10 eggs
  • ¼ C half and half
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ⅛ tsp black pepper
  • 2 C shredded cheddar cheese
  • ¼ C finely chopped chives
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 375º F. Also prep your ingredients by dicing and chopping the peppers, onions, chives, and ham. Shred the cheese. In a large bowl whisk together the eggs, half and half, salt, and black pepper. Set all of your ingredients aside for later use.
  2. Lightly grease the sides of a 9"x13" baking dish with butter. Using one 8 oz can of organic crescent roll dough from the refrigerator section of the grocery store, line the bottom of the dish with the unrolled dough in order to create a crust. Bake for 11 to 13 minutes, or until the crescent rolls are just beginning to turn golden brown.
  3. Meanwhile, over medium heat sauté the peppers and onions in 1 Tbsp of butter for three minutes. Next add the ham to the pan and sauté for another three minutes. Remove from the heat and set aside.
  4. Once the crescent rolls are done baking, assemble the dish by layering the crescent rolls, the peppers, onions, and ham and then the cheese. Pour the egg mixture over top and gently shake the dish until the eggs are evenly dispersed. Top with the chopped chives.
  5. Bake in a 375º F oven for 27-32 minutes, or until the eggs are cooked through and the omelet is just starting to pull away from the side of the dish. Serve immediately.
