Mom's onion bread

My mom use to make this for my brother and I when we were young. I had forgotten about this recipe until I had an onion roll purchased at Albertsons. This bread is good toasted aside eggs and bacon. Excellent for a my husbands favorite liverwurst and onion sandwich.

How to Make Mom's onion bread


  • 1Disolve the 2 packages of yeast in the warm water until yeast proofs ( I do this in my kitchenaid )
  • 2Once proofed add remaning ingredients except the flour and mix until blended ( I do this with the dough hook attachment )
  • 3Add 3 cups of flour and mix you will need to add more flour until the dough pulls away from the bowl. I add in 1/2 a cup increments
  • 4Put the dough in a lightly oiled bowl, cover with a towel and let it rise until double ( mine doubled in an hour. I let me dough rise in my microwave )
  • 5Once you have reached your first rise punch down and form two loaves and place in your loaf pans. Let the dough rise for the 2nd time until double
  • 6Brush with melted butter. You can top with whatever you wish or leave it plain. I made one loaf with poppy seeds and 2nd with sesame seeds and dried onions
  • 7If you are using a glass loaf pan your oven needs to be at 325 and if your are using metal loaf pan your oven needs to be at 350.
  • 8Bake 45 minutes until your bread is golden brown and let cool on a wire rack
