Baking for breakfast, this month's WBB#7 theme.As soon as Nandita announced, i went to search for an ingredient with which i could play around.Got it, it was right there in my fridge( which i had totally forgotten abt),Pillsbury dinner rolls.So from last week, i was playing around with many possible ways of breakfast items using these wonderful rolls.

Cinnamon swirls

This recipe was adapted from a recipe idea i found on Pillsbury website.This was the first one to try and came out pretty well.


Pillsbury® Refrigerated Crescent Dinner Rolls - 1 (8-oz.) can
Granulated sugar - 2tbsp
Cinnamon powder - 1/2tsp
Chocalate icing - for topping


Heat oven to 375°F.Separate dough into 4 rectangles; firmly press perforations to seal. In small bowl, combine sugar and cinnamon; sprinkle mixture evenly over rectangles. Starting at shorter side, roll up each rectangle; pinch edges to seal. Cut each roll into 5 slices.Place them in a parchment paper line cookie sheet ,Bake at 375°F. for 13 to 20 minutes or until golden brown.After it is cooled down , top it with chocalate icing.

Take the hard boiled egg and shell them and and cut them into 4 slices(lengthwise).
In a pan. heat oil and fry sliced onion till brown.Now add chilli,turmeric powder and salt and fry till aroma comes .finally add the vinegar and fry for some more minutes.Heat oven to 375°F. Separate dough into 16 triangles.working one trinagle at a time, place one egg slice with the onion masala on the longer side of the triangle.Now start rolling from the longer side towards the shorter side, make it as tight as possible.Place them in a cookie sheet and bake them till they are golden brown(13-20).

Spicy Egg roll

I made apple roll and simple parmesean roll the same way.For apple roll , i used appleslices with some sugar,cinnamon,nutmeg and limejuice.For parmesean cheese roll, just sprinkled some parmeasean cheese :)).In the case of other swirls, i made kale+parmesean swirls.I mixed finely chopped kale greens with some salt,pepper and parmesean cheese and sprinkle them into the dough.For the tiny square pizzas, i used onions,tomatoes and cheese.

I gave egg wash for some of the above items and have to say it really makes a difference.
