I saw this recipe on My Kitchen Cafe (link on the side bar) and couldn't resist! It sounded so delicious - and I just happened to have those ingred in my fridge! I made it for dinner last night and wowsa...
Cheesy Ham and Broccoli Crescent Braid
1 1/2 cups cooked ham, diced
1 cup fresh broccoli florets, cut into bite-size pieces
1 T dried parsley
2 T Dijon mustard
2 cups shredded Swiss cheese
1 8 oz Pillsbury Crescent Recipe Creations
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl, combine ham, broccoli, parsley, mustard and cheese. Stir well. Unroll the crescent roll dough and arrange flat on an 11X17 baking sheet. Using a knife or scissors, cut 1 inch wide strips in towards the center, starting on the long sides. There should be a solid strip about 3 inches wide down the center, with the cut strips forming a fringe down each side. Spread the filling along the center strip (it will be piled high but the strips will reach over the mound of filling when it is braided). Fold the side strips over filling, alternating strips from each side and pressing them into the dough on the opposite side, forming a braid. Pinch or twist to seal.Bake in preheated oven for 20 to 25 minutes until deep golden brown. Cut into slices and serve immediately.
*I eliminated the parsley (was in a hurry) and didn’t have Swiss cheese – so I used Cheddar and added diced onion – so good – and simple! The kiddo's macked this!
