Pampered Chef Braid

Have you ever made a braid out of crescent rolls? When my mom passed away in 1997, I started selling Pampered Chef products, and it was a fun outlet (distraction) for me. I made so many braids at so many parties! Yes, the recipe has been around for a long time, but I’ve never shared it here on RE. 

[PS. I hosted 100 parties!]

How to make a scrambled egg and ham braid

  1. Arrange the crescent rolls from one package into a rectangle shape on top of a piece of parchment paper on a cookie sheet. Place rolls from remaining package along the edges of the two long sides of the rectangle, with the broad half of the rolls on top of the first layer of rolls, and the pointed ends extending over the sides of the pan.
  2. Arrange the ham in a layer down the center of the dough. Spoon the cooked egg mixture on top of the ham and then sprinkle the cheddar cheese. Bring the corners of the rolls together over the cheese to form the shape of a braid.

It’s easy!

When I think of the holidays this year, I think of smaller gatherings, and bringing our loved ones together around our table with good food. Definitely 2020 looks a lot different for many of us, but we will still eat, get together, and give thanks.

I’ll end with this poem, that makes my heart warm and happy:

The world begins at a kitchen table. No matter what, we must eat to live.

The gifts of earth are brought and prepared, set on the table. So it has been since creation, and it will go on. -Joy Harjo

ENJOY!
