Pass down a love for Tribes-A-Dozen Voilà! Hallah Egg Bread Mixes Prize Package Giveaway

I was raised by a Catholic Mother and Jewish Father… crazy, huh? It was actually very cool for me as I learned about religions and holidays from both sides. My Father was a Conservative Jew on the more Orthodox side. We had Shabbat dinner every Friday evening, with prayer over wine and Hallah and attending services every Saturday morning.

Well, I am now grown up and my Father has passed away. We live in a home with my In-Laws who are practicing Southern Baptists and my kids all attend church and Sunday School. But, this doesn’t mean that I don’t want them to know about my families heritage. I still believe it is a necessity to teach them about all religions and about how I grew up. The problem is that there are not too many Jewish restaurants or even stores on this side of town, so it has been a bit rough on us. This is why I was very excited when Tribes-A-Dozen contacted me about their unique kosher (OU) line of three Voilà! Hallah Egg Bread Mixes — Simply Spelt, Traditional, and Wholey Wheat that I could make here in my own kitchen. Hallah (or challah bread) is a classic egg bread, that can also be referred to as barches, brioche, kalács, osterbrot, or, simply, twisted bread.

The Voilà! Hallah Egg Bread Mix comes in a box with a little packet of yeast, so all you need to have on hand is warm water, vegetable oil, eggs, and if you want poppy or sesame seeds.

Since I don’t have a mixer, I mixed the bread by hand using wooden spoons and it took about ten minutes until I felt I had the right consistency. Of course, all the while Baby Miss was all too excited to help, which was actually a lot of fun. Once I was done mixing, I followed the directions to roll the bread in a ball, placed it in an oiled bowl and let it rise for about ten minutes.

At that time, I laid out some flour on the counter so that Baby Miss could ‘help’ and rolled out three rolls of dough then I ‘braided’ them together. Please keep in mind that I am NOT a baker and this was my first time, HA!

I puckered the ends together, placed it on parchment paper and then we added the egg wash and sesame seeds.

We then let it sit for another forty-five or so minutes to rise before putting it in the oven. Of course, Baby Miss didn’t want to wait, so I allowed her to have some more fun with the flour, HA!

Now, my bread only raised just a bit, but I was okay with it. So, I put it in the oven and within a few minutes my house was smelling so good, bringing back so many wonderful Shabbat dinner memories to me.

When the Hallah was finished baking, I removed it from the oven and it just looked and smelled amazing, exactly how I remember it as a child. The crust was flaky and the inside was moist and delicious, and I could not wait to dig in.

All in all, the whole thing was super easy, yes, it would have been easier with a mixer, but I was just as happy as I could be. This one item brought back a spiritual feeling in me and I just knew that my Father was looking down on us smiling as he watched his youngest grand-daughter learn about one of his traditions.
