Forget about garlic bread! If you like to make your own bread – or even if you don’t! – perhaps you’re looking for some new flavors or textures. How about onions? Use both spring onion and white caramelized onion in the dough. Then let it rest, bake, and… fall in love!

Ingredients Needed for Onion Bread

1 onion
3 spring onions
2 tablespoons of fresh yeast
1 teaspoon sugar
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
2 pounds of flour
2 ¼ warm waters
1 tablespoon olive oil

How to Cook Onion Bread

  1. Preheat the oven to 450°F/230°C.
  2. Thinly slice the onion and chop the spring onion.
  3. Add the fresh yeast in a small bowl and gently break it into chunks with the help of your fingers. Add the sugar and mix it with the yeast. Add 2-3 tablespoons of warm water and mix until you obtain a smooth, moist mixture. Leave it aside.
  4. Heat the vegetable oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add the onion and cook it until it is golden.
  5. Add the flour in a large bowl. Add the spring onion, yeast, fried onion, and warm water. Mix with your hands until you obtain a smooth dough.
  6. Now scrape the bottom of another large bowl with olive oil. Move the dough in it and cover it with a towel for 30-60 minutes.
  7. After that, spread flour on your working surface. Grab the dough, and knead it for a few minutes until it’s firm, smooth, and elastic.
  8. Move the dough in an oven tray, cover it with a towel, and let it rise for 15 minutes.
  9. Slide the tray into the oven and bake it for the next 15-20 minutes.
