Challah Bread

For our second Saturday Bread Baking we made Challah Bread. This recipe is from Baking Illustrated. This recipe calls for two braids, a smaller one stacked atop a larger one, to get a good challah shape.
The larger, bottom bread braid.
The second, smaller bread braid on top the larger one. The braiding isn't that difficult.
So pretty & shiny with the egg wash. But even prettier after baking:
A beautiful golden color. The braids really did stick together.
We used the bread to make roast turkey & smoked gouda with honey-dijonnaise sandwiches for lunch.
It's a bit of a sweeter bread, but so tasty. I tried it plain, toasted, and panini grilled. I liked the panini version the best. I've been enjoying our homemade breads so much that I don't think I'll be able to go back to English muffins for lunch. I guess we'll have to factor in bread baking time every weekend - ?!
