Breakfast Pizza

We love breakfast for dinner in our house. I usually make pancakes with bacon and eggs, though tonight I found something faster, easier, and darn tasty. And the best part (for my husband) is that the eggs stay warm, so you don't have to rush and devour them first. Success all around.

1 package (8 ounces) crescent roll dough
6 ounces breakfast sausage patties
1 cup frozen hash brown potatoes
3 tablespoons butter
3 eggs, beaten
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon black pepper
3/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese

1. Heat oven to 350°F. Spray a pizza pan with nonstick cooking spray. Spread out crescent roll dough to fit pan.
2. Crumble the sausage and brown in a 10-inch skillet about 6 minutes. Drain and transfer to a plate.
3. In the same skillet, cook hash browns in 2 tablespoons of the butter, 10 to 12 minutes. Transfer to another plate.
4. In same skillet, melt 1 tablespoon of butter, add eggs and scramble over medium heat, about 2 minutes.
5. Sprinkle sausage, potatoes and eggs on dough. Season with the salt and pepper. Top with shredded cheese.
6. Bake at 350°F for about 20 minutes or until cheese is melted and edge of pizza is browned. Cool slightly. Cut into 6 pieces and serve.
