Braid Up Your Dinner or Dessert

28 May

This is the best photo of instructions I’ve seen to make a stuffed dough braid. Start with your favorite dough – or do what I do and use 2 rolls of crescent rolls and press them out into a large rectangle. Cut slits along the sides as in photo. Add your filling. Starting at one side take end strip and fold it diagonally over the filling. Repeat with other side. Continue as in photo. To end, I’ll wrap one strip along the edge of the filling to keep it from oozing out while baking.  I like to brush on a beaten egg and depending on the filling; sprinkle with parsley, rosemary, or cinnamon/sugar mixture! The egg will give the braid a shiny professional look.

I know your thinking what am I filling this thing with? Just about anything! The other night I did the classic chicken, broccoli and cheddar cheese with a little mayo. But any recipe that you would normally serve over noodles or rice would be fantastic- just omit the noodles and rice. Or any pie filling would make a lovely and yummy dessert.

As long as your filling isn’t raw meat or anything – pop into 350F oven for 20 minutes or so. Check for dough done-ness.

One extra tip: If you’re making a dessert – when its done you could even stir up a little milk into some powdered sugar for a sweet drizzle – so good!  photo via
