So, our freezer has been giving us fits lately. Not sure what’s up, but some days it works perfectly and them BAM! It takes the day off. Usually I can reboot it (flip the breaker), but this time no go. As I was emptying it again into the garage freezer (thank goodness for that), I discovered my Rhodes Bake-n-Serve frozen individual rolls had begun to rise and the bag was about to burst! Now instead of individual rolls, I had a big pile of dough. UGH! I had to start getting creative and that’s how this breakfast pie came about.
Once I took the rolls out, or shall I say a pile of dough that resembled Jabba the Hut, I put them on a greased cookie sheet so they can finish rising. Once done, I had a mountain of dough that I had to use quickly so it didn’t go bad. I hate to waste food. I remade my Calzones for dinner that night, cut a few slices off and rolled them into a ball so I can have an ACTUAL roll, then used the rest for this breakfast pie.
This was easier than I thought. I Googled the Rhodes site to find out how long to bake it since I had already tossed the bag and trash day came around. There are lots of recipes there for individual rolls or blobs like I had and they came to my rescue. I decided to make a breakfast pie and had eggs, potatoes and veggies to add to it. For what started out as a colossal mess, turned into a pretty good breakfast.
I’m not the best with a rolling pin so my crust didn’t look like something out of Martha Stewart’s kitchen, but the crust turned out good even as ugly as it looked. I turned this into a simple meal by shredded the potatoes into hash browns and cooking those while the crust baked. Then I added it all to the crust, baked it some more and had a wonderful breakfast that also became great leftovers for work. Yes, I eat breakfast at work. These leftovers were a welcome break from the usual yogurt.
