Don't forget to bake your shlissel challah on the shabbos after Pesach! It's a segulah for 4bms and other such awesomeness.

My only question... is it a challah with a key inside? Or a challah shaped like a key?

Ah, the million dollar question.

I say do a key-shaped challah with a key inside, you'll be yotzei l'chol hadeios.

Some people just make a line on top of the challah.  If you put the key inside, you gotta be very careful nobody eats it.

Are you kidding? Eating it is the biggest segulah there is!

Which key do you use? House key, car key, office key? What about if you have a home office?

"Some make the challah in the shape of a key.

Some attach a piece of dough in the shape of a key. Breslov Customs for Pesach (page 57) says this is the minhag of the family of Reb Elazar Kenig shlita and of Manistritch.

Sefer Hatoda’ah mentions making the image of a key with sesame seeds on top of the challah. These first three customs can, perhaps, be seen from the wording of the Ohev Yisroel in one place where he says we put the image of a key on the challah.

Some place an actual key in the challah. Perhaps this is done because of the wording in many places of indenting the challah with a key."

If you Davke wanna put in a real key in the Chalah you can put it into a piece of silver foil and put it in like that.
You can say what you think when you think what you say.

We don't do it at all
