On some days a bowl of spaghetti with a side if bread just won't do. We gotta dress it up, make it fancy and make it the kind of comfort food you can enjoy wearing a cocktail dress and not just your jammies. For those days we have braided spaghetti bread. Same thing as before, just with a better dress sense.
- In a large bowl, mix together the yeast with the water. Mix well and make sure no clumps are left.
- To the yeast mix, add butter, salt, milk and sugar. Mix well.
- Now, using a wooden spoon mix in 2 cups of the flour. Add the remaining flour a little until a time to form a dough. Use more flour if your dough seems too sticky.
- Now get in there with your hands and show that dough who's boss for the next 10 minutes. Knead well.
- In an lightly greased bowl, let the dough rise for an hour, or until double it's size.
- While its rising, make your favorite spaghetti with a little extra tomato sauce. If you are not a fan of tomato sauce, you could even do an Alfredo sauce. Mix well with spaghetti and keep aside.
- Once the dough has risen, punch it down and quickly knead for a minute.
- Now push the dough down using your fingers or a rolling pin to form a rectangle.
- Layer your spaghetti and cheese on the middle of the rolled out dough in a straight line vertically.
- Using a knife, cut strips on earth side of the filling, approximately one inch apart.it should be like little slits.
- Once all the strips are cut, braid the strips, right over left, right over left, until the entire bread had been braided.
- Bake at 350 Degrees for 30-35 minutes. Let sit for a few minutes to settle and then slice to serve.
