Layered Italian Bake

I think I've cooked dinner every night this week. That's probably a first for me. We usually at least have one night of frozen pizza or chicken nuggets.

This time it's Layered Italian Bake.

1- 8oz refrigerated crescent rolls
8 slices turkey
8 slices ham
12 slices salami (I didn't use salami, but I guess the meat is what gives it the Italian name?)
8 slices swiss cheese
4 eggs, beaten
1 can roasted red peppers (I didn't use these either because I don't like peppers)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Unroll crescent rolls without separating triangles. Separate into 2 squares.
Place one square on the bottom of an 8x8 square baking dish.

Layer half the meat on top of dough, then cheese and peppers. Pour half of the eggs on top of the cheese.

Continue layering meat, cheese, peppers.  Place other square of crescent rolls on top.  Pour remaining eggs on top of dough.

Cover lightly with foil and bake for 20 minutes.  Remove foil and cook for an additional 20 minutes. (I cooked mine for a total of 50 minutes because I noticed the eggs were still really runny and that grosses me out)

Let cool for 10-15 minutes. Enjoy!

I will admit this recipe scared me a little. First, was the fact that I was putting eggs on what was essentially a sandwich and I don't really like eggs. Second, was the way it looked. I'm a picky eater so if something looks weird I won't even try it, but this smelled amazing so I gave it a try.  It was actually pretty good. I couldn't taste the eggs at all. Mike said it was alright and again Marley only ate hers because she wanted candy afterwards.  I did some searching online to see if I could find some other reviews of it, just to see what others thought of it, and I stumbled across someone saying they would make it using cheddar cheese and add bacon so it's more of a breakfast dish. I am totally doing that next time- who doesn't love bacon?!
