DIY Desperation Breakfast

Croissant Roll-ups!

In my October frenzy of trying to clean (GREEN) out my cupboards of OLD food stuffs, and the refrigerator and freezers, I managed to let our food stores dwindle to starvation level.

This eggs or eggbeaters, no milk/or evaporated milk, one piece of dry bread, no juice, no bacon, ham, or sausage...but we had coffee, thank heavens. We are usually big breakfast eaters as we are always busy in the mornings. As my husband and I split a heel of bread...yugh...I thought of this!

In the drawer was a roll of Pillsubury low-fat crescent rolls, a package of low-fat smoked turkey deli-meat, and a hunk of mild cheddar cheese--all a base for what turned out to be a NUMMY breakfast.

Starving, we pulled apart the crescent dough, Hubby was fast on this, 
I had to catch up with the camera.
I placed a half a piece of turkey (next time will place both halves on)

and about a tablespoon of shredded cheddar cheese to the dough.

We added a dab of lingonberries (IKEA)---or this could easily be cranberries, or applesauce.

At this point they really looked good enough to eat. (Can't you tell we are hungry?)

We did a quick roll up, and placed them on parchment paper, popped them in the oven at 375 degrees for about 14-15 min.

They came out toasty brown and bubbling, (all the ingredients are precooked anyway) and these were ready to serve.

And were absolutely nummy, roughly 130 calories each as made. We each ate two and split a half an apple and another cup of coffee.

They were actually so good, next time I need to bring a brunch item, I will make some up with some ham/turkey and maybe some brie, with the lingonberries. I popped the other four into the freezer for a quick microwave breakfast in the future.

Now to clean the fridge and go shopping! 
Have a great day...and as always, thanks for stopping by.
