Brunch Pizza Squares

Brunch Pizza Squares
Makes 6 Servings

10 oz. Jimmy Dean Light Sausage
1 tube (8 oz.) reduced fat refrigerated crescent rolls
4 eggs
2 tbsp fat-free milk
2 oz. cabot 75% reduced fat cheddar cheese
Salt and pepper to taste

In a skillet, cook sausage over medium heat until no longer pink; drain. Unroll crescent dough into a lightly greased 13 x 9 x 2 inch baking pan. Press dough ½ inch up the sides and seal the seams between triangles by pressing down. Sprinkle with sausage. In a bowl, beat the eggs and milk. Add salt and pepper and pour over sausage. Sprinkle with cheese. Bake, covered, at 400 for 10 minutes. Remove foil and bake for 10 minutes or until the crust is golden brown and the cheese is melted (may need to cook for another 3-5 minutes).

Nutritional Information: 310 calories, 18 carbs, 19 fat grams and 17 protein grams. So yes, pretty high in fat, but having it on days when I have lower-fat meals planned for lunch and dinner will balance it out.

Review: We both REALLY liked it - great size serving and very filling. Also - YUMMY! And inexpensive - the crescents were $1 and the sausage was $2.20 - throw in eggs and some cheese and you're looking at like $.75 a serving - love it! This has really become a family favorite and quick, easy standby.
