MAKING THE STUFFED BREAD

Start bringing the top most slit ends across from each other alternately.
Keep going, remember to alternate, like a crisscross fashion. Left to right…right to left.
When you reach the end, leave a tail at the bottom, just for the appearance. You can just tuck everything neatly in if you like.
Grease a tray and place your breads.
Apply egg-wash and sprinkle the sesame seeds
Bake in a preheated oven at 375 deg Fahrenheit for about 45 minutes or until the bread is golden brown

SERVE HOT
