Sure, here’s a recipe for a delicious Ham, Egg, and Cheddar Breakfast Braid:


For the dough:

  • 1 package (1/4 ounce) active dry yeast
  • 1 cup warm milk (110°F/43°C)
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/3 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 3 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

For the filling:

  • 1 cup diced ham
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 4 large eggs, beaten
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley (optional)


  1. In a small bowl, dissolve the yeast in warm milk. Let it sit for about 5 minutes until it becomes frothy.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the sugar, melted butter, flour, and salt. Pour in the yeast mixture and mix until a dough forms.
  3. Knead the dough on a floured surface until it becomes smooth and elastic. Place it in a greased bowl, cover with a clean kitchen towel, and let it rise in a warm place for about 1 hour or until it doubles in size.
  4. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).
  5. Roll out the risen dough on a floured surface into a large rectangle.
  6. Sprinkle the diced ham evenly over the dough, leaving a border around the edges.
  7. Spread the shredded cheddar cheese over the ham.
  8. Pour the beaten eggs over the ham and cheese. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  9. Carefully fold the edges of the dough over the filling, creating a braid-like pattern. Pinch the edges to seal.
  10. Transfer the braid to a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
  11. Bake in the preheated oven for 25-30 minutes or until the crust is golden brown and the eggs are set.
  12. Optional: Sprinkle chopped fresh parsley over the braid before serving.
