Turkey Potato Cups and a Broccoli Pesto Bread Braid

There is absolutely no way I can prepare you for what you’re about to read over on the Tablespoon.

I just need you to sit down, clear a spot in your mind for never ending confusion and clear a spot in your throat for never ending WHAAAAAAAAATS.

If you’re an old friend of mine or even a current one, I . . . you . . . I . . . you’ve been warned.

I’m nervous. Alright, here goes. One…two…..THREE.

OKAY CHECK YOUR PULSE. I can’t be held responsible for fatalities today. I already have to wash my hair.

Once you can find your eyelids that are probably still pressed into the back of your skull, (sick?) I have something else to show you. Something that doesn’t involve a jack hammer and a crow bar to the nervous system.

Bread braid! Braided bread. Broccoli bread braid. Broccoli braided bread. Broccoli breaded braid. Brocc–OW! Really, that neck hook ain’t cool, duder.

That’s broccoli in there! Oh, right I already said that. Come and braid with me?

*If your heart rate has not settled back down to its normal beat, please check with your local doctor and then let me know, because I’m willing to wash my hair tomorrow. Thank you and I’m sorry.*

    All sorts of yum going on here! The potatoes are drool worthy indeed. The bread is awesome and would be perfect on the St Pat's table, all green and pretty like that. Nice posts today Bev!

    My mom is big on baking (not cooking, mind you ;) and I have the fondest memories of apple-stuffed braids that she would make when we were kids...all cinnamony and airy with a glaze. Your pesto braid looks delicious. I would love to tear off a hunk and eat it with pasta or soup! Gorgeous work!

    Well now I officially love you even more....for a couple of reasons. First of all, those turkey potato cups just look absolutely amazing, and I cannot wait to try them. Secondly, I love college basketball, too. As a matter a fact, when my husband got home last night, he said, "There is something we need to do tonight. We have to fill out our tournament brackets." I always get more right than him. :)

    Prettiest braid ever. That looks delish, Bev!

    I flip out for potatoes - not basketball - potatoes. So I'll scream and jump with you. Also, since my little girl refuses to grow hair, I'll just have to stick with braiding bread for now.

    I remember seeing that pesto braid on Instagram and I couldn't wait for the recipe! I love a good pesto, and I've recently fall in love with broccoli pesto. Yum!

    I don't care which one looks better because for me they both look appetizing and delicious.

    I totally just burst out laughing because when I saw the title of this post on your sidebar, I read it out loud and went, "Whaaaaaat?" Then I started reading your post and saw that you wrote exactly that. Your blog is clearly perfect. And you are a mind reader.
