Green Onion Bread

deb baldwin


This bread is really different. The first time I made it I was confused about what type of onion, so I used green onions. (I don't think this is what I was suppose to use)
Anyway, what a wonderful flavorful bread.
"This light, tender white bread with a fresh onion flavor.
The slash on top gives these easy to make loaves a special look."

pinch tips: How to Knead Dough



2 loafs


1 Hr 40 Min


40 Min




7 to 7 1/2 c
all purpose flour
2 pkg
active dry yeast or quick rise yeast
1/2 c
finely chopped whole green onions (about 7)
1/3 c
2 tsp
2 c
1/3 c
shortening, i use butter flavor or butter
egg, slightly beaten
1 Tbsp

Directions Step-By-Step

In a large mixer bowl, combine 3 cups flour, yeast, onion, sugar and salt, mix well.
In a saucepan, heat 2 cups water and shortening until very warm (120-130 degrees; shortening does not need to melt).
Add to flour mixture.
Add 2 eggs.
Blend at low speed until moistened; beat 3 minutes at medium speed.
By hand, gradually stir in enough remaining flour to make a firm dough.
Knead on floured surface, 5 to 8 minutes.
Place in greased bowl, turning to grease top.
Cover and let rise in warm place about 30 minutes (15 minutes for QUICK-RISE yeast).
Punch down dough.
Divide into 2 equal parts.
On lightly floured surface, roll or pat each half to a 14 x 7-inch rectangle.
Starting with the short side, roll up tightly, pressing dough into roll with each turn.
Pinch edges and ends to seal.
Place in greased 9x5-inch bread pans.
Cover; let rise in a warm place about 40 minutes (20 minutes for quick rise).
Oven: 375 degrees
Combine 1 egg and 1 tbs water; brush loaves.
The egg wash will make a shinny, crispy crust.
With sharp knife, carefully make a slash 1/2 inch deep lengthwise down center of each loaf.
Bake at 375 degrees for 35 to 40 minutes until golden brown. My oven: 30 min.
Remove from pans; cool.

Makes great sandwiches or sliced thick and grill for Texas toast.
