Double Yum!

TWO Recipes in ONE Post?!?! This is CRAZYTOWN!

The past couple of days, I've been a cookin' fool. This post will introduce you to the yummblies that are the Breakfast Star and Buffalo Chicken Garbage Bread :) I found both of these recipes on Pinterest and then tweaked them to make them my own low fat. 

The Breakfast Star

This easy-peasy meal is the perfect weekend breakfast. It takes almost zero time to prepare and is a real crowd pleaser. I tested it on my parents and brother and it was a hit! Hooray!

1 Roll of Low Fat Crescent Rolls
5 Eggs
2 Cups of Low Fat Cheddar Cheese
1 Cup of Bacon Bits or Turkey Sausage Crumbles (Your Choice!)

1. Preheat your oven to 350, and scramble your eggs.
2. While your eggs are a'cookin and your oven's a'heatin, get out that large baking pan, unroll your crescents and put them in a "star" formation with the pointed ends facing away from the circle. Make sure the "fat" ends of the points are overlapping so the middle of your star doesn't have any holes in it.
3. Once your eggs have been properly scrambled, put them on the middle of your star along with the bacon (and/or sausage) and the cheese.
4. Fold the points of the star into the middle and over the eggs (see picture).
5. Bake your fancy pants star for 20 minutes and presto! You have a delicious breakfast treat! 

Buffalo Chicken Garbage Bread

I made this for family dinner last night and it turned out surprisingly well! Not too difficult, not too time consuming :)

1 Roll of Lowfat Crescent Dough
2-3 Chicken Breasts (Cubed)
1 Cup of 2% Motzerella Cheese
1 Cup of Lowfat Cheddar Cheese
1/3 Cup of Blue Cheese Dressing (Made with Yogurt)--Bolthouse, which you can get at Target, has a pretty yummy version
1/2 Cup of Frank's Red Hot Buffalo Sauce
1 Tsp of Olive Oil
Salt, Pepper

1. Preheat oven to 425
2. Heat your olive oil in a skillet and when it's good and hot, throw in your chicken bits and add salt and pepper for some flavor.
3. While it's cooking, flour a baking sheet and spread your crescent roll dough onto the pan. Make sure you pinch together the seams so your yummy stuffing doesn't seep out while it's cooking. Put your blue cheese dressing and 1/4 cup of Franks Red Hot Buffalo sauce on top of the dough and spread it around so there's a good mix.
4. Once your chicken has been cooked, add 1/4 cup of Franks Red Hot Buffalo sauce to the pan, stir it up, and let it sit for maybe 2-3 minutes on low heat.
5. Pour your chicken onto the dough. Add your cheeses.
6. Starting at the end of the dough (see picture), roll it all up until you have something closely resembling a loaf of bread. (This is the MESSY part)
7. Bake for 25 minutes and let cool for 10.

VOILA! There you have it friends! One Post. Two Recipes :)


  1. Yum. I have never seen low fat crescent rolls! I have to keep an eye out for them. =)

    Just Wild About Teaching

    1. For some reason, a lot of the yummy looking recipes I find need crescent rolls!! Finding the reduced fat ones was a life saver.... :)
