Rhodes Corned Beef Braid // Tried and TastyWe are nearing St. Patrick’s Day and if you haven’t nailed down your menu, let me suggest this Corned Beef Braid. I have mentioned a couple of times that I have only had corned beef within the last couple of years and I really like it! In fact, I’ve now wondered where this traditional Irish meat has been all of my life?! 

If you are looking for an easy festive lunch or dinner I’ve got a zillion step-by-step photos for you to walk you through every moment of the process! If you’ve been afraid to attempt a ‘braid’ I’ll relieve your hesitations. It’s SO easy! Stuffed with yummy corned beef, cheese, potatoes, and spinach this braid is not only simple, it’s also filling and delicious!

  2. Remove wrap and spread mustard lengthwise in a 4-inch strip down center of dough. Top with corned beef, spinach and potatoes. Sprinkle potatoes with salt and pepper. Top with grated cheese. Make cuts 1 1/2-inches apart on long sides of dough to within 1/2-inch of filling.
  3. Begin braid by folding top and bottom strips toward filling. Then braid strips alternately over filling. Finish by pulling last strip over and tucking under braid.

    What an amazing idea! I love corned beef, but it’s nice too see something different than the usual corned beef and cabbage. I’d like to link to this on Friday if that’s ok with you (I post text links to things I love each Friday).
