Italian Layer Bake

Serves: 6

Cooking Time: 40 min

What You'll Need:

  • 1 (8-ounce) container refrigerated crescent rolls
  • 8 slices deli turkey (about 1/2 pound)
  • 8 slices deli ham (about 1/2 pound)
  • 12 slices deli hard salami (about 1/2 pound)
  • 8 slices Swiss cheese (about 1/2 pound)
  • 1 (12-ounce) jar roasted peppers, drained
  • 4 eggs, beaten

What To Do:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Unroll crescent roll dough without separating triangles. Separate dough into 2 squares along center cut line.  
  2. Place 1 square of dough into an 8-inch square baking dish. Using your fingertips, press dough to fit bottom of dish.  
  3. Layer with half the turkey, ham, salami, Swiss cheese, and roasted peppers. Pour half the beaten eggs over the peppers and repeat  the layers with remaining meats, cheese, and peppers. Place remaining square of dough over peppers. Pour remaining beaten eggs over dough and cover lightly with foil.  
  4. Bake 20 minutes, remove foil, and bake an additional 20 to 22 minutes, or until golden and heated through. Let cool 5 minutes, then cut and serve.

 

Notes:

  • For even more flavor, you can add 1/2 teaspoon of Italian seasoning, along with 1/4 teaspoon of salt and pepper. Feel free to try another cheese too - like provolone!
