Breakfast has to be my absolute favorite meal of the day for several reasons.
1. I don’t have to worry about the calories I consume (as much.)
2. Eating something smothered in syrup or frosting still counts as a meal.
3. If I’ve been dieting properly, I’m usually starving when I wake up in the morning.
4. It keeps me energized all day.
5. I LOVE LOVE LOVE omelettes!
But then there comes the dilemma… Do I want that healthy egg white spinach omelette or pancakes? Do I want huevos rancheros? French toast? Something sweet? Something savory? Something with eggs? Maybe a breakfast burrito or quesadillas?
Well, if you’re like me, and you can’t choose between eating something savory or sweet for breakfast (I’m not indecisive.. I just WANT IT ALL!) Here’s a small simple solution.
Just make both.
And that might sound like a lot of work, but its really not, the two following recipes are exactly the same except you change up the filling and topping. My mom makes it in the morning, and I love it! I usually go for cinnamon rolls and my sister gets the savory scroll, and I’ll just steal a bite of hers if I’m craving something salty.
They’re also very portable, so a good breakfast-on-the-go (which I LOVE being a college student with no time to eat breakfast ever) or even a snack in your lunch.
Go here for the recipe for the dough for the Cinnamon Rolls.
The dough recipe for the Ham, Corn & Cheese rolls is EXACTLY THE SAME as the cinnamon rolls! Isn’t that great? The only thing different is the filling. And no frosting of course. Remember half the dough you set aside? You use that for the ham scrolls! Or if you just want one, double the filling or halve the dough recipe.
waiting for their second rising.
Ham, Corn, & Cheese Scrolls
2 tablespoons mayo
1/2 can canned or fresh corn, washed and drained
1 medium yellow onion, diced
1 teaspoon dill, oregano, whatever herbs you want
2 fistfuls (is this a measurment?) diced fresh mozarella
2 fistfuls ham, diced into small bite-sized pieces
For the filling, mix up the mayo, corn, onion, cheese, and herbs. Let sit for about ten minutes.
Follow the exact procedure of rolling out the dough for the cinnamon rolls, but instead of the cinnamon filling, spread on the mayo-corn mixture first. Then, sprinkle the ham evenly over, and roll up, cut, and then let rise. Baking time is the same.
