  2. Cut 2 cloves of garlic into thin slices, and insert slices evenly into braid. Brush 1 1/2 tablespoons melted reduced-calorie margarine over braid, and sprinkle with 2 teaspoons sesame seeds. Bake at 350° for 25 minutes or until loaf sounds hollow when tapped. Remove from baking sheet immediately. Serve warm.
