Easter Bunny Bread Recipe

If you thought your Easter table should be filled with dishes and hours of hard work in the kitchen, think again! We suggest you spend your time more fun-filled with your family and friends, instead of with pots and meats. Here is a nutritious and delicious appetizer you can bake in a total time of 45 minutes. And why not spend the rest of your lunch time catching up and enjoying discussions with each other, instead of stuffing your belly with food. It’s your choice. Here is what you’ll have to do to make the Easter Bunny Bread:

2 loaves (1 pound each) frozen bread dough, thawed
2 raisins
2 sliced almonds
1 egg, lightly beaten
Lettuce leaves
Dip of your choice

First, lightly beat the egg. Then use the dough to shape the bunny. Start with the head (a pear shape), followed by the body and then the whiskers and head. For these last two you should make 3/4 inch deep cuts in the head dough. Make the oval shaped paws from the remaining of the dough. These should connect to the body via one inch slits. Use the raisins for eyes and the almonds to act as teeth. Take the egg and brush the entire bread with it.

Place your rabbit in a warm place for half an hour or more until it doubled in size. Put to bake for another half at 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Decorate a tray with lettuce leaves and put the golden brown bread bunny on them. Now take a knife and fashion a medium size hole (5 by 4 inches) in the center of the rabbit, remove the interior and fill it with the dip you like. Put extra veggies on the sides and place on the table. Enjoy your meal!
