How dramatic!

Hi! I just found your blog and it's beautiful! Clean, bright photos. Love it! I'm from the basque country in northern spain and we have a similar bread for eater. rich brioche type bread with a cooked egg in the middle. one of my favorites!

Another gorgeous creation! Great job!

oh, i'm so glad you mention dying eggs with onion skins, because it's such a strong easter tradition in poland, and so few people know about it.
i dunno though, it might be a bit hardcore for this recipe, because the eggs tend to turn a rusty deep red that actually does look kind of like dried blood. might be a bit too graphic?
also, i am kind of confused - the eggs stay in their shells? isn't that kind of a pain?

Hi Rachel, I hope you mean the breads and not my post! They really are quite pretty when you pull them out of the oven.

Hi Aran, thank you for stopping by. It is so enjoyable to see the regional breads and sweets of each area during holidays. It is one of my favorite things about visiting other blogs.

Thank you Tracy!

Hi Kasia, the eggs stay in the shells because you only partially cook them before you bake the bread. I haven't tried it, but I think that if you were to fully cook them, peel them and then bake them with the bread--they would be tough and rubbery.

oh my gosh -- i'm half greek, and my grandmother used to always make these for greek easter every year. and now i have a recipe! i haven't had this since i was a kid!

Hi Katy,

I wish my grandmother had been Greek -- it wouldn't have taken me 20 years to have this delicious bread for the first time!

what's with the chopped onion then?!

Jon, good catch! It should read correctly now.

Awesome, I was hoping you'd done this on your blog.
I just got off the phone with my grandma who used to make this when I was little (she's greek). I've been fantasizing about trying to make it this Easter.
I'm going to try to find and use mastic and mahlab for that real Greeky taste.
Also, in Greektown in Chicago they sell that crazy blood-red dye that's another important part of the nostalgia for me.
