Ingredients

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 350°F. Line large cookie sheet with cooking parchment paper.
  • 2
    In medium bowl, beat ham, bell pepper, 6 of the eggs and the pepper with whisk or fork until well mixed.
  • 3
    In 10-inch nonstick skillet, melt butter over medium-high heat. Pour egg mixture in skillet; cook over medium-high heat 2 to 3 minutes or until eggs are thoroughly cooked but still moist. Stir in cream cheese. Cook 1 to 2 minutes longer, stirring occasionally, until cheese is melted.
  • 4
    Meanwhile, unroll dough into 1 long rectangle onto cookie sheet. Press into 16x8-inch rectangle, firmly pressing perforations and seams to seal.
  • 5
    Spoon egg mixture in 4-inch wide strip lengthwise down center of rectangle. Sprinkle with shredded cheese. With sharp knife, make cuts 1 inch apart on long sides of dough rectangle to within 1/2 inch of egg mixture. Fold strips of dough up over egg mixture to meet in center; pinch to seal.
  • 6
    In small bowl, beat remaining egg with whisk or fork; brush evenly onto dough. Sprinkle with poppy seed.
  • 7
    Bake 25 to 30 minutes or until deep golden brown. Remove from cookie sheet; cut into crosswise slices. Serve warm.

Tips from the Pillsbury Kitchens

  • tip 1
    For convenience, in this crescent braid we used cubed ham, which can be found in the meat department of your favorite grocery store. You can also use leftover ham.
  • tip 2
    Serve with a side of fresh fruit for brunch.
  • tip 3
    Parchment paper makes transferring braid as well as cleanup easier. Just pick up the parchment paper after baking, and slide the braid onto a cutting board or platter.
