One bite in and I wondered how in the world I'd lived my life without trying it before. YUMMO! When I saw this Corned Beef Braid I knew I would love it... and love it I did! It's super simple to throw together. Check it out! It's March! Do you know what that means? It's the month of all things GREEN.Gather up your ingredients. You'll need Rhodes Dinner, dijon mustard, sliced deli corned beef, spinach, potatoes (baked & sliced), Swiss cheese, an egg, salt & pepper to taste & caraway seeds. Phew. It's not as bad as it sounds. It's really not that many ingredients. It's March! Do you know what that means? It's the month of all things GREEN.Make sure your rolls are thawed to room temperature.
