A "Twist" on Greek Easter Egg Bread

Sometimes, we "borrow" recipes from other traditions. My mom and grandmother did it all the time because there were so many good foods from other cultures that they wanted to try. This one is a slight Polish spin on a Greek sweet bread for Easter. The basic recipe is the same, and the dough is braided (like the Jewish Challah bread - more borrowing for technique :) and then formed into a ring. The raw, undyed eggs are set right into the unbaked bread. After baking, the eggs are perfectly cooked. I brush some egg dye on the eggs, and voila - it's done! The Greek bread will typically have all red eggs. I paint my eggs in multi-colors. Either way, this is a delicious bread that I love to make every Easter. Nom!
