Sunrise Recipes for BTS!

Farmer, Jr. woke up and came and woke me up at 7:15.  And, I was silently disgruntled. Because this is my next to last morning to get to sleep in.  Actually?  This morning officiates that summer is over here at Farmer*wife house.
Because tomorrow morning is officially the Saturday morning leading to the first week of school. Meaning that from here on out with exception of holidays?  Saturday mornings are my only morning to sleep in (ie: till 7:00 or possibly 7:30 a.m.)
It is officially hustle and bustle time!  As I walked into the kitchen (Farmer, Jr. trailing behind me, tummy apparently growling -- that's what woke him up... -- and making suggestions for breakfast) I saw the most beautiful sunrise!  [I know.  And, I didn't take a picture....for shame.  I was pre-occupied with the smell of coffee.)
The sunrise reminded me of last year's school mornings and all the beautiful sunrises I captured and shared with y'all.  It also reminded me of the breakfasts I make as I like to give the kids a variety through the week, and I like most breakfasts to be hot!
This morning, Farmer, Jr. voted for "Cinnamon Sugar Pull Aparts."  This is a simple, tasty, warm to the tummy, recipe.  Great for mornings in a hurry!
Cinnamon Sugar Pull-aparts:
1 can of biscuits (whole wheat, or your preference)
1 Tablespoon sugar (you can use more, if  you like.)
Cinnamon (sprinkle to your liking)
Optional:  Butter spray, or 1 pat of butter
Preheat oven to 400.  Open biscuits and cut into four pieces, no particular shape or pattern.  Scissors work great for this. I have kitchen shears just for food.  Drop the pieces in a small baking pan.  Layer all the biscuit pieces kind of like those cinnamon breakfast cakes.
Sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar.  Optional, spray with spray butter or drizzle with a melted pat of butter.  Bake, and wha-laaa!  Yummy and warm.
This one is really good.  You might want to do a little prep the evening before , if your mornings are are short on time.
Ham, Egg and Cheese Crescent Bake
1 can crescent rolls; preferably reduced fat
Three scrambled eggs (can be prepared the day/evening before)
Chopped ham (I just use our deli sandwich meat and cut it up; the day/evening before)
Greated cheese (I like cheddar; but use your preference)
Preheat oven to temp on crescent can (350 or 400); Spray non-stick spray on a cookie sheet or baking sheet.  Lay out Crescent rolls flat; do not separate at seams.  If they come apart, just squoosh them back together.  The crescent rolls should layed out in a long rectangle (squoosh seams together).
Spread scrambled eggs down the middle of the rectangle.  Layer ham next, then cheese.  Last, roll seems up from each side and seal together.  Bake, until golden brown.  Cool a minute or two so cheese can set.  Then slice and serve!  Yummy!  
[I realize pictures might help; so, next time I make these I'll try to remember to take some]

Oh I'm definitely printing out that ham, egg and cheese crescent bake! That would be perfect for when family is visiting. Or I'm visiting them.

My kids are going to be lining up and drooling on your kitchen windows. It's a rare treat for me to make hot breakfast for them. You may just be making me see the error of my ways!
