Yield 1 braided ring, serves 12-18




  • 3/4 cup buttermilk
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 2 large eggs
  • 4 cups bread flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 3 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1 (0.25oz) package (7g) or 2 1/4 teaspoons Red Star Active Dry Yeast


  • Egg wash: 1 egg plus 1 tablespoon milk (whisked together)
  • 1 tablespoon sesame or poppy seeds (optional, for topping)


  • Have all ingredients at room temperature. Add dough ingredients in pan in order recommended by manufacturer. Select dough/manual cycle. Check dough consistency after 5 minutes of kneading. The dough should be in a soft, tacky ball. If it is dry and stiff, add water, 1/2 to 1 tablespoon at a time. If it is too wet and sticky, add 1 tablespoon of flour at a time. At end of cycle, continue with next step.
  • Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Punch down dough to remove air bubbles. Divide into three equal pieces. On lightly floured surface, roll each piece to a 24-inch rope. On greased cookie sheet (optional: lightly sprinkled with cornmeal), loosely braid ropes from center to ends. Shape into a circle; fasten ends by pinching dough together. Cover; let rise until indentation remains after touching.
  • Make egg wash: whisk together egg and milk. Gently brush over risen dough. Sprinkle with sesame or poppy seeds, if desired.
  • Preheat oven to 375°F.
  • Bake for 25 to 35 minutes until golden brown; cool on wire rack.

Assemble sandwich ring

  • Using a bread knife, slice ring in half crosswise to create a large sandwich. Spread bottom section with mayonnaise; arrange filling ingredients on top of mayonnaise. Spread top section with Dijon mustard; place on top of filling. Slice into serving portions.
  • Suggested Filling: mayonnaise, thinly sliced deli meats (ham, roast beef, prosciutto, salami), sliced cheeses (brick, mozzarella, Swiss), leaf lettuce, sliced tomatoes, sliced onion rings, sliced black olives, Dijon mustard.
