Potluck Friday!

So Friday we had a potluck lunch at work for the world series. Everyone could wear their favorite baseball gear and brought in something to share (or chipped in money for pizza.) you know I never pass up an opportunity to make food to share!
I made antipasto squares, a recipe I got from one of my old managers which is a godsend for potlucks and a good make ahead appetizer if you're having company because they're easy and you can make them the night before because you serve them cold.
2 tubes of crescent rolls
1/2 lb of Swiss cheese
1/2 lb baked ham from deli
1/3 lb hard salami from deli
1/3 lb slicing pepperoni from deli
2 eggs

Preheat the oven to 375 and grease a baking pan with just a little bit of Pam or canola oil or whatever you choose. One the first package of crescent rolls and unroll it in the bottom of the pan leaving it in a sheet. If need be stretch the dough so it covers the bottom of the pan completely, but don't worry about the side. Then lay a layer of cheese across the whole thing, a layer of salami, a layer of ham, and a layer of pepperoni. Then one more layer of cheese across the top of the meat layers. Now it's time to open your second package of crescent rolls. This will be your top layer so just make sure it covers the pan. Then scramble up the two eggs in a separate bowl and pour the eggs over the top. Try and spread it evenly over the top crescent layer. The egg will act as a sealant to bind all the layers together. Don't worry if some of the egg pools it will all cook and look nice.
Cover the pan in foil and place in the oven to cook for 15 minutes, then take off the foil and bake for another 15 minutes. Allow to cool and put in the fridge before cutting. It's much easier to cut when it's cold. Cut them into squares and serve right out of the pan or arrange them on a fancy plate.
Sorry the photos are backwards in order from completion through the steps. They were a huge hit at the potluck and I hope ya'll enjoyed the recipe!
