From Electric Bread. A little bit different from others I've tried, and very good. The smell is divine. The original had 1 teaspoon of poppy seeds, but I didn't think they did much for the recipe. You can certainly add them if you wish. You can also use 1 tablespoon onion paste instead of onion powder. Time will vary according to your machine.

We loved this onion bread! I followed the lead of a cpl of the reviews by using a mix of white & whole wheat flour + dry onion soup mix. My kitchen smelled like heaven & my tastebuds thot they had died & gone there. This is a dense bread that is great as toast & for sandwiches is best sliced thinly. Thx for sharing this great recipe w/us. :-)

I made a few changes to the recipe. I did not use my bread machine but instead kneaded the dough in my Kitchen Aid and let it rise for 30 min. Hereafter I punched it back down and formed it as a round 'loaf' and let it rice for another 30 min. I used 1/4 dried onions and 1 tsp garlic powder since I did not have onion powder. I used water instead of milk and only 1 tbsp of butter. All in all it worked great and we had a fantastic bread with our dinner and for lunch! Thanks for sharing.

Very nice flavor, with a tender inside crumb. Made on the dough cycle in the ABM, with 2 cups bread flour, 1 1/4 cups whole wheat flour, 1/2 tsp garlic powder ~ and then as written! Made into 8 little loaves, baked at 375F for 15 minutes! Tagged for Zaar Stars.
