I haven’t searched the world wide web to verify the originality of this recipe: Egg & Cheese Crescent Wraps.
But I can say with 100% certainty that Noah (who was 7 at the time) didn’t steal it from anybody…. he “invented” it one day when he asked if he could make lunch.
And we’ve had it several times since. Personally, I would consider this breakfast food, but Noah always requests it for lunch, and so for us, it’s become a lunch recipe!
If someone else thought of this concoction before him, then I guess great minds think alike!!
Anyway, since inventing this recipe (that’s what he says… “Mommy, can we make the recipe I invented for lunch today?”… he’s begged me to share it on my blog.
Well, today is Noah’s 8th birthday and to honor him – I’m sharing his recipe! Happy Birthday Noah!! We love you bunches and bunches and bunches!!
To sum it up, first he fries some eggs. We fry ours in a skillet with butter and we leave the yellow quite runny. It won’t be super runny when you’re done, because you’re also going to bake them.
Note – Noah had help the first time he fried eggs, but has because quite the expert and doing it himself (with supervision).
After the eggs are done, he laid them on a raw crescent roll – straight out of the can. The rolls were spread out flat in a triangle.
After laying the egg on, he took each corner of the triangle and wrapped it up around the egg. It won’t cover it all the way – and that’s okay!
Next, he shredded cheese on top. I prefer cheddar or pepper jack (that’s what he usually uses), but today we had mozzarella, so he topped them with mozzarella.
After they’re all wrapped up on a cookie sheet, he baked them at 375° for 10 minutes. At that point, the rolls are done, the cheese is bubbly and the egg yolk is set, but not totally cooked… just the way we like ’em!
I think this kid is a chef in the making, don’t you?
Noah would love it if he got lots of birthday messages… would you leave him a comment about his recipe or his birthday? Thanks so much!!
