1/4

1/2
lb chopped cooked ham
1
cup shredded sharp Cheddar cheese (4 oz)
1
egg, beaten
1 1/2
teaspoons sesame seed
  • 1 Heat oven to 375°F. Cook broccoli as directed on bag; drain well on paper towels.
  • 2 If using crescent rolls: Unroll both cans of dough; do not separate. On ungreased cookie sheet, place dough with long sides together, forming 15x12-inch rectangle. Press edges and perforations to seal. If using dough sheets: Unroll both cans of dough. On ungreased cookie sheet, place dough with long sides together, forming 15x12-inch rectangle.
  • 3 Arrange turkey in 6-inch-wide strip lengthwise down center of dough to within 1 inch of each short side. Spread mustard-mayonnaise spread over turkey. Top with ham, broccoli and cheese.
  • 4 With sharp knife or scissors, make cuts 1 1/2 inches apart on long sides of dough to within 1/2 inch of filling. Alternately cross strips over filling, twisting strips once. Tuck ends under; press to seal. Brush dough with beaten egg. Sprinkle with sesame seed.
