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.

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.
