Here at my house my family loves ham and cheese.
When you add homemade bread to the equation,
it is heavenly!
Today we are having friends over so I decided to make this for lunch.

Basic Bread Recipe
4 to 4 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 package of active dry yeast
1 cup milk
1/3 cup sugar
5 tablespoons butter
1 teaspoon salt
2 eggs

In a mixer bowl combine 2 cups flour and the yeast.  Heat the milk, sugar, butter, and salt just till warm.  Stir to mix ingredients well and add to the flour mixture; add eggs.  Beat at medium speed and slowly start adding as much of the remaining flour as you can.  Shape into a ball and place in a greased bowl; turn once.  Cover and let it ruse in a warm place till about double.  

 Roll out the dough into a rectangle.

 Make slashes on each side of the dough.
This is what you're going to braid.

 I added cheese, ham, and cheese again.
We like cheese in our family.

Braid the bread.

Wrap it in foil.
Bake in a 350 oven for 20 -25 minutes.
If the top is not brown, take the top foil off.

Take it out of the oven, slice it and enjoy!
