1 pkg. dry yeast
1/4 c. warm water
1/4 c. sugar
1/2 c. warm water
1/2 c. milk
1/4 c. butter (softened)
1 egg, beaten
4 c. flour

1/4 c. melted butter
1 c. onion, finely chopped (or 1/4 c. instant minced onion)
1 T. grated Parmesan cheese
1 T. sesame seeds
1 tsp. garlic salt
1 tsp. paprika

Dissolve yeast in 1/4 cup warm water. Add sugar, 1/2 cup warm water, milk, 1/4 cup butter, egg, salt and 2 cups of flour. Blend at low speed until moistened. Beat for 2 minutes at medium speed, stir in remaining flour to form soft dough. Cover, rise until light and double in size, about 1 hour. Punch down and roll out to 18 x 12 inch rectangle. Spread filling on top.

Cut lengthwise into 3 - 18 x 4 inch strips. Starting with 18 inch side, roll up in jelly roll fashion to form 3 strips and place on well greased cookie sheet and braid, sealing in edges. Cover, let rise about 1 hour.

Bake in 350 degree oven 30-35 minutes. Brush with butter.

Personal Notes:
Make the filling first and put it in the refrigerator. It is much easier to put cold filling onto the dough when sealing in the filling.

This recipe was a 4-H grand champion and state fair award winner for both me and my daughter Nicole (25 years later!!)
