Antipasto Bake = Yum!

Amy @ Living Locurto was wonderful enough to post her recipe for a delicious Antipasto  Bake a while back.  You can see her post here.  This has quickly became my family's favorite dish!  It's easy to make, creative to change up, and delicious to eat!  And, by the way, it is VERY filling!  We try to have this dish once a week.  I am constantly changing it to make it different.  But, we have our favorite combination here and I made it for my family last night:

Antipasto Bake

2 cans crescent rolls
1 package Canadian Bacon (I used all of it)
1 package pepperoni slices (1/2 package)
1 package cotto salami slices (1/2 pkg.)
1 package sliced provolone cheese (1/2 pkg cut up in thin slices)
1 package sliced swiss cheese (1/2 pkgs cut up in thin slices)
1 jar roasted red pepper strips (only used 1/4th of the jar!)
1 egg
3 tablespoons grated parmesan cheese
1/4 tsp black pepper

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Line a 13x9 inch pan with sides with one can of dough.  Layer meats and sliced cheeses and red peppers on top of the dough.  In a bowl beat egg lightly, and stir in parmesan cheese and black pepper.  Spread 3/4 of this mixture over the peppers.  Unroll the 2nd package of crescent rolls and place over the top the peppers.  Brush with the remaining egg mixture.  Cover with aluminium foil.  Bake for 25 minutes then remove foil and bake for 10-20 minutes longer or until dough is fluffy and golden brown.

As you can see from her recipe, I changed it up a bit on the meats.  You don't have to use all the packages of meat and cheese.  I use about 1/2 of each package and then make sub sandwiches with that during the week for lunches.    Hope you'll try her delicious recipe for your family!
