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


  1. Disolve the 2 packages of yeast in the warm water until yeast proofs ( I do this in my kitchenaid )
  2. Once proofed add remaning ingredients except the flour and mix until blended ( I do this with the dough hook attachment )
  3. Add 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
  4. Put 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 )
  5. Once 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
  6. Brush 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
  7. If 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.
  8. Bake 45 minutes until your bread is golden brown and let cool on a wire rack
