Ingredients

How to make it

  • Preheat oven at 375 F.
  • In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in ½ cup warm water. Add 1 tsp. Sugar; let stand for 5 minutes. Add the butter, onion, egg, salt, mustard, 3 cups flour and remaining water and sugar. Beat until smooth. Stir in cheese and enough remaining flour to form a soft dough.
  • Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 8-10 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 45 minutes.
  • Punch dough down. Turn onto a lightly floured surface; divide in half. Roll each portion into a 18-inch x 10-inch rectangle. Cut in half lengthwise. Combine filling ingredients; spread to within ½ inch of edges. Roll up each, jelly-roll style, starting with a long side; pinch seams to seal. Place two ropes, side by side, on a greased baking sheet. Twist ropes together; pinch ends to seal and tuck under. Repeat with remaining dough.
  • Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 45 minutes. Beat egg yolk and water; brush over twists. Sprinkle with additional poppy seeds if desired.
  • Bake at 375 F. for 25-35 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from pans to wire racks to cool. Store in refrigerator. Yield: 2 loaves ( 16 slices each ).
  • NOTE: I have modified the original recipe.
