First you need to prepare the filling. Ham grate on a medium grater, you can cut into strips. Cheese on a small grater. Garlic and dill chop and mix with mayonnaise. Filling is ready
Start to make the strands of our braids. The dough is approximately 130-150 g roll out into a rectangle with a length of 30 cm and a width of approximately 7 cm to Lubricate the middle of the rectangle with mayonnaise with garlic and dill, leaving the edges of the dough free.
Lay the ham on the mayonnaise. Cheese on ham, also leaving the edges of the dough free.
And now, lifting the edges of the dough to connect and sculpt them together.
The first "strand" braids ready. Remove it to the side and cover so that the dough does not air.
Similarly, make two more"strands". Then put three strands next to each other and to connect their ends on top, between.
Braid pigtails. Transfer to a baking sheet buttered. Beat egg and spread it over the braid. If desired, sprinkle with sesame seeds. Bake in a preheated 180 degree oven until ready, 20-25 minutes. It may take longer, it all depends on your oven.
That's the beauty of it. After the oven, grease the pigtail with butter and let stand
And here's the pigtail cut. Filling can be completely different. Maybe even each strand has a different filling.
