Ham Breakfast Braid - Review by Deborah Wells
This braid is easy and impressive. I prepped the veggies I wanted to add the night before, but did everything else Christmas morning and it was in the oven within 20 minutes. Sauteed some red pepper and onions first, then added the egg mixture. Used spiral sliced ham, but also sauteed it up quickly before assembly to rid of a little moisture. I would not omit the cream cheese. I think it is there to help bind the eggs and to keep them moist. This sliced beautifully and reheated well in the micro. The braid part is not difficult. Read the other reviews and look at the pictures. The dough is very forgiving, which I knew in advance from making the other Pampered Chef braid recipes. Looks beautiful every time; don't skip the egg wash at the end.
