Here's a masterpiece for your next brunch: Ham and Bacon Pastry Ring. I love this recipe because it looks pretty special when you serve it to your guests, but in reality it's pretty dang easy to whip up, and it's loaded with ham and bacon....perfection!
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
In a large mixing bowl, make the filling by combining the ham, cream cheese spread, Caesar dressing, apples, grapes, and bell pepper.
Unroll both cans of crescent roll dough, pulling the dough apart into triangles at each perforation.
Using a large, greased (or well seasoned) pizza stone, or greased pizza pan, place the triangles of dough onto the outer edge of of the pizza stone, forming a large ring, overlapping each triangle slightly (at the wider end) with the next, letting the points over lap the pizza stone onto the counter. (The crescent roll dough on the pizza stone will now look like a big sun!)
Spoon the prepared filling evenly around widest part of the dough that's been laid in a ring around the pizza stone. Gently pull each dough triangle up and over the filling, tucking these points underneath the dough edge at the center, allowing some filling to be visible in between the dough triangles.
Using a pastry brush, brush the dough with the prepared egg wash. Bake the pastry in the preheated 375 degree F. oven, on the center rack, uncovered, for 25-28 minutes, or until the pastry is nicely golden brown.
Remove the pastry from oven and let it rest for 5-10 minutes. Gently use a large spatula to loosen pastry ring from pizza stone, then slide it from the pizza stone to a platter or large cutting board.
Sprinkle the baked pastry ring with warm, chopped (cooked) bacon, then slice to serve.
