Ham, cheese & broccoli braid

I have been wanting to make this ever since The Baker Chic posted her braided broccoli-pesto bread recipe and I just got a new baking stone, so perfect time to try it! My braid definitely didn’t turn out as pretty as hers, but I had some restraints (ie: 3 hungry boys tugging at my legs). It was so delicious though!

You can check out the recipe for the dough and how to do the braid here. It’s not as hard as it looks!

Here is what I used for the filling:

  • 1 cup chopped ham
  • 1 cup chopped, steamed brocoli
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 2 tablespoons dijion mustard
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 tablespoon ts onion onion
Mix all ingredients together and spread onto dough.Bake at 350° for 2 minutes.
