\N \N Flour
3 tablespoons Parmesan cheese
1 teaspoon Dried chevril leaves

On lightly floured surface, roll each portion into a long strand. Braid strands. Coil braid into a spiral on greased baking sheet. Brush with more melted butter. Sprinkle with cheese, chevril and caraway seeds. Let rise about 1 hour in warm place, until doubled. Bake at 375~ for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from pan. Cool on rack. VARIATIONS: Sprinkle bread with mix of 2 tbls dried minced onions, 1 tsp dried rosemary and ½ tsp dried thyme and ½ tsp marjoram. A second variation is to mix ½ cup grated cheddar cheese and 1-½ tbls poppy seeds into the dough before rolling the strands. Can really do almost anything you want with herbs and spices and this bread.
