Ham & Cheese Braid




When there is a Honey Baked Ham in the house I feel like " The Old Man" from A Christmas Story. I just can't keep my hands off of it! It was so hard to chop up all the ham tonight and not eat it all! This braid is really easy to make and tastes great. It is like a hot ham and cheese sandwich - only better! We had some leftover that I am going to eat for lunch tomorrow.



Ham & Cheese Braid

1 can crescent rolls (or Recipe Creations)
1 1/3 cups chopped ham
2/3 cup cheddar cheese, grated
1/4 cup honey mustard

Roll out crescent rolls vertically on baking stone, do not separate and seal perforations. Mix ham, cheese and mustard. Spread ham down center of crescent rolls. Cut 10 strips on each side of the dough. To braid, lift strips of dough across mixture to meet in center, twisting each strip on turn. Continue alternating strips to form a braid. Bake at 375 for 15-20 minutes - until lightly browned.

  4. So how did the ranch version turn out? My son doesn't like honey mustard so I need an alternate. This looks so good - I HAVE to make it!

  6. This was a winner at our house. I need to tweak my oven a bit to get the bottom to crisp up, but we'll definitely have this again!

  7. Ranch sounds awesome! I saw someone use cream cheese too but I think I'll use fat free ranch to try to keep it semi healthy ish ;) haha

  14. We don't care for honey mustard either...so we used pesto on the first one and Dijon mustard on the second one.
    BOTH were super yummy!!!
