Ham & Cheese Braid

When it’s warm outside, actually it’s been HOT, no one wants a big meal. So, I experimented and hit on a good recipe that I’ll repeat!

It actually was fun to make, and only took a few ingredients. I had everything I needed on hand. I could have made my own dough, but the tube of pizza dough worked perfect and was quick.

My husband was happy there were leftovers and used the air fryer to warm some up for himself the next day.
