Brunch Scramble Rolls: Celebrate Blog With Friends

Today’s post is the next in our series of Blog With Friends theme collaborations. Each month a group  of bloggers get together and each publish a project based on a theme. What I love about this partnership is that it’s not bloggers with similar interests or strengths but a diverse group coming up with a variety of posts. In any given month we may have a recipe, sewing tutorial, crafts projects, book review and/or a technology post all related to the theme of the month.

This month's theme is Celebrate. Appropriate for December, don't you think?

There will be individual project pictures and links to what everyone else has to offer at the end of my post, but here’s a peek at what we all came up with:

I made Brunch Scramble Rolls. The reason I chose this dish is because, for me, brunch is a big part of celebrating during the holiday season. This is especially true of New Year's Day. I wrote a post once before about the New Year's Brunch I used to host when my kids were little. It was a casual, festive open house, I had as many as 40 guests in any given year.

 Brunch Scramble Rolls


So much of the holiday season revolves around food, and I wouldn't have it any other way. I always make a full turkey dinner for Thanksgiving, and I do the same on Christmas day. The start of Chanukah is celebrated not just with the lighting of the menorah, but with a dinner featuring Prime Rib. The day after those holidays, and New Year's too, I serve brunch. It's a late morning meal served and eaten in pajamas. It's a family tradition I treasure. So when I think of "celebrate" and I think of food, it's brunch that often comes to mind for me.

These Brunch Scramble Rolls are a new addition to our brunch table and they're a hit. They're quick and easy to make, which always works for me. I want delicious and impressive brunch options, but it's the day after a holiday, I want ease when it comes to preparation.

I start with dinner rolls and no, I don't make them I buy them. This year I used wheat rolls. I hollow them, butter them and pop them in the oven.

I gather the other ingredients. Did you notice most of them are in baggies? I do the chopping the day before.

That makes the scrambled egg portion as easy as . . . well . . . scrambling eggs!

Fill the rolls with the eggs, pop on the tops and serve. Delish. And they're festive looking, don't you think?

Shhh, don't tell, but when Hubs isn't home for dinner, the boys and I will sometimes have breakfast for dinner. Lately, College Boy's been requesting these Brunch Scramble Rolls.

As always, any time you make one of my recipes, feel free to post a picture of it to my Baking In A Tornado Facebook Page. I'd love to see it!

Brunch Scramble Rolls
                                                                          ©www.BakingInATornado.com

Ingredients:
6 dinner rolls
3 TBSP butter, melted
2 tsp grated parmesan
1 green onion, chopped
1/4 cup chopped red pepper
1/2 cup fresh spinach
1/2 cup cooked chopped bacon
4 eggs
1/3 cup milk

salt and pepper
1/3 cup shredded sharp cheddar

Directions:
*Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease a baking sheet. 
*Cut just the tops off of the rolls and set onto the baking sheet, cut side up. Carefully remove most of the bread from the inside of the roll to create a bowl. Place onto the baking sheet.
*Using a pastry brush, dab the melted butter into the bread bowls and onto the bread tops. Sprinkle with the parmesan.
*Bake for about 10 minutes, just until they start to brown. Remove from oven.
*Heat a greased skillet to medium. Add the green onion and the red pepper. Cook and stir until it starts to soften. Add the spinach and stir for 1 minute. Add the bacon.
*Whisk the eggs and milk together, pour into the skillet. Sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste. Cook and stir until the eggs are scrambled. Lower the heat, add the cheddar and stir until it melts. 
*Scoop the scrambled eggs into the prepared bread bowls. Gently place a toasted bread top over each bread bowl.

  1. Those look absolutely amazing and I could totally make them in Japan! I am blown away that you could host a brunch for 40, that is truly an accomplishment. Your house sounds like such an inviting place it must be wonderful for all of those holidays.

  2. These are perfect for a brunch and they look very festive. For the low carb crowd they can scoop out the egg goodness if they must!

    1. Yes, they're pretty, easy, yummy, and I hope if someone scoops out the egg, they find someone else to eat the roll!

  6. These are almost perfect. Making me hungry - I love scrambled eggs, I love wheat rolls and I am in awe of anyone who can host a brunch for 10, much less 40. Alana ramblinwitham.blogspot.com

  7. I love that you pre-chop your ingredients. Makes for quick and easy assembling - I mean, scrambling. Breakfast for Dinner is fun!
    Now Brunch, which is supposed to combine Breakfast and Lunch, doesn't work for me. Just like "all you can eat buffets". Don't get me wrong, I like a leisurely brunch, (and your New Year's one sounds so fabulous!) but I can't fit that much food into my stomach, and soon I'l be hungry again, and if there are yummy, festive snacks, I'll eat them, and I'll eat the early dinner, too, and because it's early I may get hungry again before bedtime... You can see my dilemna.

    1. Ah, the dilemmas of the concept of brunch. I agree, many of them just offer too many foods and they all look too good to pass up.

  8. I love brunch. Fruit, bread, cheese, eggs I could go on.

    1. Me too. Sleep late and get to have breakfast at lunch time. Works for me.

    1. Yes, you should do this. I miss our New Year's open house brunches. They were so much fun.

  10. We have browsing days over the holidays. There's no set meal time, just snacky fare ready to go whenever you need a nibble. These would work for that sort of thing too.
