Onion Bread


This is a recipe I enjoy making when I bake a roast or serve beef. Smells delicious when you bake it.

3/4 cup milk
1 envelope dry onion soup mix
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup butter, softened
2 packages dry yeast
1/2 cup warm water
1 beaten egg
4 cups flour
1 egg + 1 tablespoon water for egg wash
sesame seeds (optional)

In small saucepan, scald milk. Stir in onion soup. Add sugar and butter. In large mixing bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Add lukewarm milk mixture. Stir in egg. Add 1 cup flour. Beat in. Add rest of flour; knead several times. Place in greased bowl; cover and let rise until double in size. Punch down dough. Cut into two pieces and form into mound. Place in greased 1 1/2 quart casserole dish. Let rise for 30-40 minutes. Brush with beaten egg wash and sprinkle with sesame seeds. Bake at 350 degrees for 35-40 minutes until golden brown. Makes 2 loaves.
