2 cans refrigerated Crescent Dough Sheet
6 ounces sliced corned beef
1 cup chopped cooked spinach
2 large red potatoes, boiled, cooled and sliced
1 cup shredded white cheddar cheese
Egg wash (1 egg beaten with 1 tablespoon water)
Caraway seeds, for sprinkling (optional)
Heat oven to 375°F. Line a baking sheet with a silicone mat or spray with cooking spray.
Unroll dough sheets onto prepared baking sheet. Place sheets side-by-side lengthwise and press into one large rectangle, pinching seam together with fingers.
Place corned beef in center of dough in a 8-inch wide strip. Top with spinach, then potatoes. Sprinkle with cheese.
Using a knife or kitchen scissors, cut 1-inch wide strips on long sides of dough (cut the same number of strips on each side) to within a 1/2-inch of the filling. Fold in short sides, then alternately cross strips over the filling to make a braid effect.
Brush braid with egg wash, then sprinkle with caraway seeds, if desired.
Bake 25 minutes or until a deep golden brown; let cool 5 minutes before slicing.
