How to make a kalac....


A kalac (or kalach) is a Hungarian and Russian braided bread, often served on special occasions.

My take is a bit different, but created similarly.

I defrosted 2 loaves of bread dough and spread each into 14"-16" circles.  I diced 1/3 cup each of green and red peppers, added some seasonings and chives and spread it over one circle of dough...


...and topped it with shredded sharp cheddar cheese....


...and then placed the other circle of dough on top....


....I coated the blades of kitchen shears with olive oil....


...placed a glass in the center and cut strips into the center...


...until it looked like this:


Each wedge was then twisted individually:


I brush a bit of melted butter over the dough and let it rise a bit before ....


....baking at 350' for about 30-35 minutes...


It's best served warm, and sometimes can just be pulled apart...


...or you can gently cut apart


I have made this with bits of ham and cheese OR onion and green pepper with pepper jack cheese.  The kalac I made on Sunday was gone in no time, with just the center left on the platter!
Delish!!
