Serves: 8
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 30 minutes


3/4 lb (2 1/4 cups) cooked ham, chopped or 1 cup Green Giant Select Frozen 100% Broccoli Florets, thawed or 4 oz (1 cup) shredded Swiss cheese or 1 (4.5 oz)jar Green Giant Sliced Mushrooms, drained or 1/2 cup mayonnaise, or salad dressing or 1 tablespoon honey mustard or 2 (8 oz) cans Pillsbury Refrigerated Crescent Dinner Rolls or 1 egg white, beaten or 2 tablespoons slivered almonds

Heat oven to 375 degrees. Spray cookie sheet with nonstick cooking spray. Combine ham, broccoli, cheese, mushrooms, mayonnaise and mustard; mix well.

Unroll both cans of dough. Place dough lengthwise together on sprayed cookie sheet, forming 15x12 inch rectangle. Press edges and perforations to seal.

Spread ham mixture in 6-inch strip lengthwise down the center of dough. Cut the dough horizontally 1 inch from filling, out to the edge of the dough on both sides, 1 1/2 inches apart. Twisting each strip once, alternately cross strips over filling. Tuck short ends under; press to seal. Brush with egg white. Sprinkle with almonds.

Bake 28 to 33 minutes or until deep golden brown. Cool 5 minutes. Cut crosswise into slices.
