Wrap up your breakfast scramble in delicious (and easy-to-use) dough! These things are SO good...

Prep: 10 minutes
Cook: 25 minutes
Cool: 10 minutes

1/4 cup finely chopped onion
1/4 cup finely chopped mushrooms
1 cup chopped spinach leaves
2 wedges The Laughing Cow Light Cream Swiss cheese
1 cup fat-free liquid egg substitute (like Egg Beaters Original)
1/4 tsp. garlic powder
1/8 tsp. salt
Dash black pepper
1 package Pillsbury Reduced Fat Crescent roll dough

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Spray a baking sheet with nonstick spray.

Bring a medium skillet sprayed with nonstick spray to medium heat. Cook and stir onion and mushrooms until softened and browned, about 4 minutes. Add spinach and cook until wilted, about 1 minute.

Transfer cooked veggies to a medium-large bowl and blot dry. Add cheese wedges, and stir until smooth and well mixed. Add egg substitute and spices. Mix well.

Remove skillet from heat, re-spray, and return to medium heat. Add egg mixture. Scramble until fully cooked, about 4 minutes.

Remove from heat and let slightly cool, 5 - 10 minutes.

Separate the 8 portions of dough, and lay them on a dry surface. Slightly stretch or roll each piece into a larger triangle. Evenly distribute egg scramble among the bases of the triangles. One at a time, beginning at the base, tightly roll up each piece of dough over the egg scramble to form a crescent. (If needed, press to seal.) Transfer crescents to the baking sheet.

Bake until dough is lightly browned, about 12 minutes. Enjoy!
