That’s So Jenn’s Mother’s Day Edible Gift Ideas 2014 *As Seen on CT Style*

Get the recipe:

  • 1 tube original crescent roll

    1-2 tablespoons olive oil

    3 slices fresh mozzarella

    Handful of roasted garlic cloves

    Handful of arugula

    Handful of chives, finely diced

    About a quarter block of manchego cheese, grated

    3 eggs

    4 thin slices of prosciutto

    Kosher salt and pepper to taste

    Fig balsamic for drizzling (or balsamic reduction)

    Dollop of creme fraiche for garnish

  • Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees.

    Mold entire tube of crescent dough into a ball, then spread into a circle on a parchment lined baking sheet. Stretch it as large as you can without forming holes.

    Brush with olive oil.

    Evenly disperse garlic cloves. Tear each mozzarella slice into quarters and spread over dough. Crack eggs onto dough, keeping them towards center so the liquid stays contained.

    Generously grate manchego over top.

    Break up pieces of prosciutto onto dough.

    Sprinkle arugula over top

    Season with kosher salt and pepper

    Bake pie for 15-20 minutes, cooking egg yolk mostly through in center, and allowing dough to turn lightly golden.

    Top with a dollop of creme fraiche in center

    Garnish with a drizzle of fig balsamic and more chives

    Eat and enjoy for Mother’s Day brunch or any day of the year!
