  • 1
    Heat oven to 350°F. Spray 12-cup fluted tube cake pan with cooking spray.
  • 2
    Remove dough from both cans; do not unroll. Place in pan in a circle; pinch both ends of dough firmly together to seal into 1 ring. Bake 30 to 33 minutes or until golden brown. Cool slightly, about 10 minutes. Remove bread from pan to cooling rack. Cool completely, 40 to 50 minutes.
  • 3
    Line 18x13-inch sheet pan with cooking parchment paper. With serrated bread knife, carefully cut bread in half horizontally. Pinch or tear bread from top and bottom halves, leaving about 3/4-inch shell; discard or save bread pieces for another use. Place bread rings cut sides up on pan.
  • 4
    Use decorative side for top of Bundtwich. Place cheese in decorative side of bread ring and ham on other side of bread ring. Bake 8 to 12 minutes or until cheese is melted and rings are hot.
  • 5
    Meanwhile, in 12-inch nonstick skillet, melt butter over medium-high heat; add onions, bell pepper and salt. Cook 4 to 6 minutes, stirring frequently, until vegetables are tender.
  • 6
    Pour eggs into skillet. Cook 1 to 2 minutes or until firm but still moist, stirring occasionally from outside edge to center, allowing uncooked egg to flow to bottom of skillet. Spread evenly over ham on bread ring.
  • 7
    Carefully replace decorative side of bread ring; lightly press. With serrated bread knife, cut into 8 wedges to serve.

Expert Tips

  • Prepping for a brunch party? You can bake the crescent dough in your fluted tube cake pan up to 4 hours ahead of time so all you need to do before serving is assemble the Bundtwich.
  • Want to make this Bundtwich extra cheesy? Stir 1/2 cup of shredded Monterey Jack cheese into the eggs after removing them from heat.
  • When making scrambled eggs, stop cooking, and remove from heat a few seconds before the eggs are finished cooking. The heat from the pan will continue to cook the eggs even after you take it off the burner.
  • This riff on a Denver omelet is delicious as-is, but you can also customize the ingredients you add to the egg mixture. Try mushrooms and red onions, or caramelized onions with baby spinach instead.
