1 1/2 cups warm water

1 Tablespoon of yeast

2 Tablespoons of granulated sugar

2 Tablespoons of vegetable oil

1 teaspoon salt

4 cups bread flour

BBQ Bacon Cheeseburger:

6-7 pieces of bacon, cut up, cooked

1 pound hamburger

1/2-3/4 cup favorite BBQ sauce (I use Baby Ray's Original), plus a little extra

2 cups shredded cheddar cheese

1 1/2 teaspoon hamburger seasoning (I use Grillmates)

sesame seeds (garnish)

First make the bread.

Combine water, yeast, and sugar. Set aside for about 10 minutes until it is foamy.

Add oil, salt and 2 cups of flour. Start mixing the rest of the flour 1/2 cup at a time until dough starts to pull away from the bowl. For me this was about 3 1/2 cups, I used the other half to dust and incorporate in the dough once it was on the counter.

Turn the dough onto a floured surface and knead until smooth and elastic, about 8 minutes.

Lightly oil a large bowl, place the dough in the bowl, turning to coat. Cover with a damp cloth and set in a warm place. Let rise for 1 hour or until doubled in size.

While the dough is rising, cook the ground hamburger. Season with the hamburger seasoning. Set aside.

Punch dough down. Divide the dough in half. 

Work on one loaf at a time. On a lightly floured surface, roll out one half into roughly an 11x17 rectangle. Transfer to a greased cookie sheet. Use a pizza cutter and cut slits about 2" apart and about 4" in toward the middle on the long sides of the rectangle.

In the middle, spread 1/4 cup of the BBQ sauce. Layer half of the hamburger. Then sprinkle with 1 cup shredded cheese. Next sprinkle half of the bacon. Then drizzle with a little bit more BBQ sauce.

To "braid" the bread, start on one end and fold it in. Then one at time bring in the strips, right to left, crossing them over each other. When you get to the other end, tuck it into the last few criss-crosses.

Repeat the whole process with the other half of dough.

Place both on the cookie sheet. 

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Let loves rest for 10 minutes.

Bake for 15-20 minutes, until top is golden. Butter the top and then sprinkle with sesame seeds.

Slice up and serve with extra BBQ sauce for dipping.
