    Kaarin's Note:

    This is incredibly yummy!!! It's a dijon flavored bread braided over layers of ham, swiss and dill pickle. It's a great party bread-beautiful and different.

      I used frozen bread dough to make this faster. It was delicious served with spicy mustard. Sliced on diagonal to make it prettier.

      I made this for supper last night. I liked it and my husband really enjoyed it. The flavor combos are very nice. It is neat to have the Dijon in the bread. I think this would be great on a party or buffet table. I would give it 5 stars if the bread part of the recipe was better, the flavor was good but the texture seemed lacking to me.

      Hallelujah! This was a family favorite recipe. I originally found it in a magazine advertisement for Grey Poupon. I lost my copy and and turned my house upside down but couldn't find it. Thank you Kaarin for posting this fabulous recipe. It is a winner! Goes well with vegetable soup or a salad. Every time I made it for company they loved it! My husband and children will be glad that I found this recipe on line.
