How about getting a break and treat yourself with some quick savory deliciousness? Taking just 30 minutes to make, this beef blue cheese braided puff pastry will comfort you in the best way.


The best time to eat a piece of braid is when its still warm, but the best time to slice is when already chilled. You decide! I sliced it when it was still warm and crumbly, but the best flavor is truly right out of the oven !
