    Pabbit's Note:

    Ancient recipe. This is an involved yeast bread but it is beautiful and tasty! The filling could easily be herbs rather than onion. The paprika makes for a nice color in the filling but it could easily be omitted. Add more herbs though to absorb the butter.

      I was going to post this recipe as a thanks to the folks that have helped me learn to adapt this site to my needs. This is an amazing bread that lookes and tastes wonderful. We love the filling and usually triple it and add much more (at least an additional 1/4 cup) parmesan to aid in soaking up the butter to make sealing the ropes easier. It is labor intensive, but worth every minute of effort. I always use poppy seeds for the filling and baste the loaf with butter and dust with more poppy seeds after the second rise.

      Awesome. This was my first braided bread attempt and it turned out great, with a couple of flubs on my part. I also added the green onions (which is what I used) to the butter and microwaved them together. Bread was very tender and full of flavor. I only made 1 loaf but used all the filling and it truned out great. Thanks for a real impressive loaf of bread.
