Broccoli Ham Ring

This Broccoli Ham Ring, or “Wreath,” is a delectable, all-in-one edible that is super easy to make and will be loved by everyone. This sandwich ring features crescent roll dough, chopped broccoli, savory ham, and swiss cheese. That is everything, literally wrapped into one, if you ask me!

The Broccoli Ham Ring is a treat that is fit for year-round enjoyment, but also brings a festive flair to your holiday party. As it looks like a wreath, you can dress up your serving plate or garnish with extra touch of parsley! This can also be a quick dinner for the family during those busy weeknights when there simply isn’t enough time to all sit down to the table.

True to LittleBit Busy form, there are many ways to make this more simplified or catered to your personal level of “busy.” Instead of buying a head of broccoli, try a bag of pre-chopped broccoli. Another option is buying a package of frozen chopped broccoli and defrosting before use. I promise this is just as good!

Other options are pre-cubed ham, or buying a ham steak and cutting it into small bites. If you have a larger ham, cut into smaller bits and pulse in your food processor! The recipe calls for shredded swiss, which seems hard to find at times; just buy swiss cheese slice and quick cut them into shreds. No worries here!

Quick Tip: Don’t forego the parsley in the filling! It brings an added freshness to the dish. Feel free to play with your filling ingredients! If serving for a party, make sure to use the round pizza pan for the best presentation! If making for a special snack at home, I’m a huge advocate for using the best baking sheet you have!
