On Sunday Kim cooked a great baked ham. We had some leftovers and I decided to cook Broccoli Braid with are a few pics.

Laying out the crescent rolls


Spreading cream cheese and butter


The ham & broccoli


The cheese & green onions


Prepped & ready for the small BGE...cooked at 350 for 30 minutes


Almost ready


Added a little cheese & ready to eat


Overall it was very good and I will make it again however I will make a few tweaks to the recipe...stay tuned for updates & thanks for looking.

Also, we were trying to fix the dome on the small Saturday and we broke a screw...oh well it still cooks well

    Ginny, That looks neat to make. I would think a person could use their imagination and use many different ingredients. I'm going to bookmark this cook. Thanks Tim ;)

    Yes, unfortunately those screws don't have enough "cap" to support over-tightening. My dealer was nice enough to give me a couple of replacement screws when I broke one.
  • mint-tulipmint-tulip Posts: 171
    Nah he hangs around to get pointers...LOL ;) :laugh:
  • elzbthelzbth Posts: 2,075
    Looks delicious! Did you steam the broccoli in advance?
  • HossHoss Posts: 14,600
    That looks AWESOME!!! B)

    That's a thing of beauty! Nice work

    I broke one of those same screws on my new mini band. I was able to fabricate another one from a stainless screw, I just had to cut a good portion of the head off so it wouldn't push against the dome. I used a dremmel tool with a cut-off wheel and clamped the screw in a vise (with 2 nuts on it to not hurt the threads)

    What a great idea. Very nice :)

    Ginny on top of being delicious this is a work of art. Congratulations
  • vidalia1vidalia1 Posts: 7,092
    Yes she did partially steam the broccoli even though the recipe didn't say to. We like our broccoli cooked through not al dente'.... ;)
