…is Swiss Ham Ring Around.
I first saw it on a grocery store pad of recipes, I think put out by the Pillsbury Company.
1 cup fresh or frozen chopped broccoli, cooked and drained
1 tablespoon margarine or butter, softened
1/4 cup chopped parsley or parsley flakes (optional)
2 tablespoons finely chopped onion
2 tablespoons prepared mustard
1 teaspoon lemon juice
3/4 cup shredded Swiss cheese
1 cup diced cooked ham
1 can Crescent Rolls
Grated Parmesan cheese
Heat oven to 350°F. In large mixing bowl, combine margarine, parsley, onion, mustard and lemon juice: blend well. Add cheese, broccoli and ham: mix lightly. Set aside. Separate crescent dough into triangles. On greased cookie sheet, arrange triangles points toward the outside, in a circle with bases overlapping. The center opening should be about 3″. Spoon ham filling in a ring evenly over the bases of triangles. Fold points of triangles over filling and tuck under bases of triangles at center of circle. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. Bake at 350°F for about 20 minutes or until golden.
I usually leave out the parsley, and I don’t cook the broccoli thoroughly since the mixture is going to be baked.
It’s hard to know what to serve with it, though. Tonight I just had carrot sticks with it. Sometimes I’ve made macaroni and cheese as a side dish. Since it has bread, vegetables, cheese, and meat all together, though, you can just serve it alone if you’d like. :)

I am using an archived post this week. This is one of my most-often searched for posts, especially right after Easter and Christmas. :) So I am just going to link to it rather than copying and reposting.
