Onion Bread

I found this little gem in an old paperback copy of Uncle John Raye's Bread Book. This formulation is GREAT! Make sure there's butter or margarine handy when it comes out of the oven, because it will dissappear fast! It would make a great bread to make stuffing/dressing with for Thanksgiving.

Onion Bread
Yields: 2 loaves

c dehydrated onions
c water
c warm water
1 T yeast
1 pt milk, warm
2 T shortening
2 T sugar
1 t salt
1 # 8 oz bread flour
1 t celery salt
t poultry seasoning
1 T melted butter

Allow onions to rehydrate in c of the water. Proof the yeast in the c warm water in a mixer bowl. Add warm milk, shortening, sugar, and salt.
Sift the flour with celery salt and poultry seasoning.
Muffin method: add dry ingredients to wet. Knead on machine 10 minutes. Place dough in a greased bowl, roll dough around in the bowl to thoroughly coat with fat. Allow dough to rise until doubled. Punch down and let rest 12 – 15 minutes.
Make-up into two loaves, and place in greased pans. Let loaves rise until doubled. Split loaves, if desired, and brush with melted butter.
Bake @ 400F until done, about 30 minutes.

Do you think that it would mess anything up if you added some shredded sharp cheddar it it?

Is that 1 pound and 8 ounces of flour? This sounds delicious.

Poultry seasoning in a bread recipe...that's interesting. Can't imagine what it would taste like. Can you describe the taste and have you tried it? TIA

We use poultry seasoning in our cornbread dressing all the time. I also use it in a squash dressing. It's very good. I don't know what dressing tastes like without it.

I agree, Texas. I've used poultry seasoning in stuffing recipes, but curious about what the taste is like in this recipe for baked bread.

I would love this bread with a "Christmas leftover" sandwich! Thanks Allen, I've got a new one to try this December!

Yes, that is 1 lb 8 oz of flour. I tend to use professional abbreviations in my recipes, so you'll see a lot of "#" instead of "lbs".

It has a great onion flavor, and the poultry seasoning adds a nice hint of sage.

For the admins, yes, I did rewrite the instructions of this recipe to reflect my style of mixing a bread dough.

Still haven't made it yet - what is wrong with me?
