How to Make Ham & Cheese Braid

To make this braid, start with a can of crescent rolls. Roll them out and press all the seams together. You can also use a can of the crescent sheets if you can find them. Once you have the crescent rolls spread out, cut 10 slits on each side of the rectangle – leave the middle of the dough uncut. Combine the chopped ham, cheese, and honey mustard dressing. Spread it down the middle of the crescent roll dough. Pull the dough strips over the ham mixture and bake.

If you have any leftover filling, just spread it onto the top of the braid during the last few minutes of baking. It will make it look pretty and you get more ham and cheese to eat.

  1. 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!!!

  2. 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

  3. 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!

  4. i just kept the honey mustard out and made it without it and then used the ranch to dip into it…my kids like to dip. lol turned out awesome!!!

  5. 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!
