this just cries out that Christmas is here to me! I kind of want to dye the rolls green, but I'd probably screw something up.
To start off, you need some chopped ham (I was lucky enough to have some leftover thanksgiving ham that needed to be used up), chopped broccoli, cheese (your choice of white cheese--I used mozzarella, you could use swiss, provalone. . .) and two tubes of crescent rolls.
That's it! really not too much at all.
Mix together everything but the crescent rolls. Feel free to season with salt and pepper.
take a pizza pan or stone (I'm too scared to try my stone. . .I don't know how they work!) and layer the crescent rolls into a sun pattern. Make sure your bottoms are overlapping, since that's where all the filling is going to go!
Lightly press the seams together on the bottom, and then start piling the filling up!
it's going to get all over, it's ok. use your hands, and you can squish it together, that kind of helps it not to overflow too much off the edges.
then take the rolls and fold them over the filling and tuck them under the bottom of the rolls. Yup, the filling is showing, and I can hear you thinking "I don't want to get melted cheese all over, because that's a pain to clean off."
wait, that wasn't you? Must've been dear Captain Jax, who cleaned the stove out for me, after I flipped a pizza upside down while I was taking it out. Don't ask how it happened. Gravity and me just don't get along sometimes.
and here we have it after it's baked for about 25 minutes!! doesn't it look good? it tastes good too, and it's a nice CHEAP meal! just the way I like my meals.
