Company coming onion braid

Yield: 1 Servings

Measure Ingredient
2½ teaspoon Yeast
4 cups Bread flour
1 cup Milk, warmed in micro
¼ cup Sugar
1½ teaspoon Salt
½ cup Butter
¼ cup Water
1 Egg

Here's a recipe that's too big to bake in your machine, but it will mix and knead it. It's a beautiful braid.

Put in machine on dough cycle.

When the machine beeps, take the dough out and roll out 12 x 18 rectangle.

Cut dough into 3 (4" wide) strips. Mix filling: 1 minced clove of garlic, 1 tbsp Parmesan cheese, 1 tbsp poppy seeds, and ¼ c butter, melted.

Carefully spoon this mixture along the middle of the the strips. Fold over long side, pinch together. Place the three strips on greased baking sheet about an inch or so apart. Carefully braid from the center loosely out to each end. Press the ends together and tuck under. Cover; let rise until double. Before baking, brush with 1 egg yolk mixed with 1 tsp cold water and then sprinkle with poppy seeds. Bake at 350 for 30 to 35 minutes.
