Cheese & Onion Pull Apart Loaf

READY IN: 55mins




  • Place the frozen onions in a microwave safe bowl and heat in the microwave on high for 4 minutes.
  • Sift the flour and salt into a mixing bowl; add the butter and rub it in with your fingertips to resemble fine breadcrumbs.
  • Mix the egg, milk and mustard together; add them to the flour mixture and mix to form a soft dough.
  • Turn the dough out onto a well-floured surface and knead lightly; and then divide the mixture into approximately 14 uneven pieces.
  • Line a greased 14cm x 22cm loaf pan with baking paper; and place half the dough in pieces over the base.
  • Sprinkle with half of the onion, cheese and parsley; then cover it with the remaining dough and the remaining onion, cheese and parsley.
  • Bake the loaf in a preheated oven at 200°C /400°F for 40-45 minutes or until it is a rich golden brown.
  • Notes: This is best eaten hot straight from the oven. Add chopped kalamata olives or diced bacon with the onion for a tasty addition.
