Strawberry Breakfast Braid

This is a quick and yummy breakfast everyone loves. The kids equate it to toaster strudels but better. And of course mom knows it is healthier and more economical. I just wish my pictures were better.

  • 2 cups Bisquick
  • 3 oz cream cheese
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup jam (strawberry, raspberry, blueberry and apricot are our favorites)

Cut cream cheese and butter into Bisquick until crumbly. Add milk and mix. The dough will not hold together yet, but don't add more milk. Pour out onto a lightly floured surface and knead about 12 times until the dough holds together. Roll into a 12" x 8" rectangle. Spread the jam down the center of the rectangle the long way. Cut from long edge to jam every 1 1/2 on both sides. Fold cut strip in over jam pressing slightly. Bake on greased cookie sheet for 12 - 15 minutes in a 425 degree oven.

For glaze mix 1/2 cup powdered sugar, 1/8 tsp vanilla, 1/8 tsp almond extract and about 1Tbs milk. Add more or less milk to get the consistency that you want. Drizzle glaze over braid and enjoy.
