Ham Florentine Wreath

9 Jan

As a part of our ‘late’ Christmas celebration with my family, we enjoyed a ridiculous amount of food. Not surprising huh?! One of the best things we ate all weekend was a Ham Florentine Wreath. I was able to snap some photos while my sister-in-law Kara made the gorgeous meal.

Ham Florentine Wreath

2 8 oz packages refrigerated crescent rolls
8 oz thickly sliced deli ham, diced
1/4 c green onions with tops, thinly sliced
5 oz Swiss cheese, grated (1 1/4 cups)
10 oz frozen chopped spinach, thawed and well drained
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1/4 t coarsely ground black pepper
2 plum tomatoes, sliced
1 egg, separated
1/4 cup almonds, chopped (we omitted)

Preheat oven to 375° F.

Unroll crescents into 16 triangles. With wide end toward center arrange 8 triangles in circle. Arrange remaining 8 triangles in center matching wide ends. Seal seams.

Mix ham, green onions, 1 cup cheese, spinach, mayo and black pepper. Scoop filling over seams of dough forming circle. Arrange tomatoes in overlapping circular pattern over filling. Top with remaining cheese. Lift corners of dough over filling one at a time slightly overlapping to form wreath.

Beat egg white lightly; brush over dough. Sprinkle almonds over wreath.

Bake 25 to 30 min or until golden brown. Slice, serve & enjoy!

This dish was so full of color that it made you anxious to take a bite! Try it sometime and let me know what you think. If you are anything like me, you won’t be able to have just one slice!
