Merry Christmas! Broccoli, Ham and Cheese Wreath- Guide Recipe

I have been so busy the past few weeks! I graduated from UNCW last weekend and Christmas this weekend, phew! I have been cooking a lot but I haven't had a chance to post. I have the luxury this year of being lazy on Christmas day with my family. My laptop has also been out of commission because the charger was not working.......but now I am on my moms and I have finally posted my recipes! I have had a wonderful Christmas with my family and I hope you all have too! 

I made this wreath last week and fell in love with it. You could literally put ANYTHING in this, and I will be playing around with this whole wreath thing a lot. All year long. I call it a wreath now because its Christmas but we can just call it a... round or something the other 11 months of the year. :) Next I'm going to try a Cuban Sandwich ring, how good does that sound?! This is what I used this time:


2 cups cooked, chopped ham
2 cups chopped broccoli florets
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1/2 c mayo
1/2 c ranch
1 tbsp ranch dressing powder
4 strips bacon, cooked and crumbled 
2 packages crescent rolls

1. Mix all the ingredients in a large bowl except the crescent rolls and bacon.
2. Line a pizza pan with foil and spray with Pam. (I used a large skillet because Mr. Picky did not have a pizza pan at his house. I just wrapped the handle in foil so it wouldn't melt. Worked!)
3. Arrange the crescent dough triangles in a circle on the pan with the large parts of the triangle overlapping. (see picture above) Spoon the filling in a circle over the overlapped portion of the dough. 
4. Fold the short end of the triangle over the filling towards the center and tuck underneath the overlapped dough. Sprinkle the crispy bacon evenly on top.
5. Bake for 30 minutes in a 375* oven or until golden brown. Let cool slightly before slicing.


  1. Oh yes, thank you! It was an afterthought and
    I forgot I sprinkled it on there. Bacon makes everything better. :)
