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."

How to Make Green Onion Bread


  1. 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.
  2. 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).
  3. 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).
  4. 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.
