- 1 package (1/4 ounce) active dry yeast
- 3/4 cup warm water (110° to 115°)
- 1 cup warm 2% milk (110° to 115°)
- 1/4 cup butter, softened
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- 1 egg yolk
- 1-1/2 teaspoons salt
- 4 to 4-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 egg white
- 2 teaspoons water
- 1 teaspoon coarse sea salt or kosher salt
- 1 teaspoon dried minced onion
- 1 teaspoon each sesame, caraway and poppy seeds
- In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Add milk, butter, sugar, egg yolk, salt and 2 cups flour. Beat on medium speed for 3 minutes. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a firm dough.
- Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease the top. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 1 hour.
- Punch dough down. Turn onto a lightly floured surface; divide dough into thirds. Shape each into a 20-in. rope. Place ropes on a large greased baking sheet and braid; pinch ends to seal and tuck under. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 45 minutes.
- Preheat oven to 375°. Combine egg white and water; brush over dough. Combine salt, onion and seeds; sprinkle over bread. Bake 22-28 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from pan to a wire rack to cool. Yield: 1 loaf (25 slices).

"Fantastic! Made as directed except I used my stand mixer. Definitely will do again."
"Made it and it was excellent...It was easy to do and smelled amazing while it was cooking...I sprinkled kosher salt, and some seasoned garlic on top."
"This was wonderful. Made it exactly as written."
"I have been making this bread for every major holiday for the past 4 or 5 years. I am now dubbed the "bread lady" because of how much my family LOVES this bread. I think the secret is in the temperature of the water and to make sure the butter is softened, not melted (yes I have done this and killed the yeast). This really is an "everything bread. I've done braids, crowns, and rolls. It also turns out better (in my opinion) if you refrigerate the dough overnight."
