Easy Challah Bread

Happy Rosh Hashanah!

This is great for a Rosh Hashanah celebration or anytime.

I used premade bread dough for this, but you can make your own bread dough if desired.

Premade bread dough
1 egg, beaten
1/8 - 1/4 tsp. each: parsley granulated garlic, salt, pepper
non stick cooking spray
1/8 - 1/4 c. flour (enough to dust work area)

Preheat oven to 350' F.

Knead bread dough if needed and cut dough into three pieces. 

Place dough on a clean plate.

Cover bread dough with a clean dish towel and let rise 1 hr.  if needed.

With clean hands, sprinkle some flour on a clean workspace.

With your hands roll 1 dough piece into a long strand on workspace.

Repeat process with remaining dough pieces.

Place 1 strand in the center on clean parchment paper.

Attach remaing strands to the middle strand at the top of the strands by pinching them together.

Spread out strands and braid 1 strand over the middle and do the same with other strand. Repeat braiding process with strands until bread is braided.

Crack egg in a clean bowl.

Add salt, pepper, parsley, garlic and mix egg with a clean fork.

Place bread on cookie sheet.

With a pastry brus,h brush egg wash over the bread and place bread in oven.

Bake bread for 30 to 40 minutes or until done.

Serves 6 - 8.
