Onion-Poppy Seed Biscuit Loaf

"I found this recipe in a magazine while waiting in a doctor's office. It looked so good, I made it that evening with dinner. This is tasty & quick, and I would imagine you could experiment with any number of seasonings to go with a variety of menus. These can also be baked separately on a cookie sheet instead of the loaf pan."

Ready In:
1 loaf


  • 14 cup butter or 1/4 cup margarine, melted
  • 2 tablespoons minced dried onion
  • 1 tablespoon poppy seed
  • 2 (12 ounce) cans refrigerated biscuits (10 biscuits per can, NOT the Jumbo size)


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees; lightly grease a 9x5 loaf pan, or use a non-stick loaf pan& set aside.
  • Melt butter or margarine in a medium-sized bowl; stir in the minced dried onion& poppy seeds.
  • Open the cans of biscuits& separate them.
  • Dip each biscuit quickly into the butter mixture, turning to coat both sides.
  • Line up the biscuits in the loaf pan, standing them on edge, forming two long rows; drizzle any remaining butter mixture on top of completed loaf.
  • Bake in preheated oven for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown.
  • (You may find you need to lower your oven temperature to 325 degrees in order for the middles of the center biscuits to get done; or you can bake these individually on a cookie sheet after dipping them in the butter mixture.).

  1. This tastes great. My guests just raved about it. I didn't have a loaf pan so I put it in a bundt pan. It turned out beautiful. I'm not sure I would even use a loaf pan now after seeing these results. I will experiment with different spices and additions to the biscuits. This is a sure keeper.Thanks again mary scheffert.5 stars all the way.
  2. Great recipe! I had one similar for an herb biscuit loaf but the spices are not as complimentary as your recipe. Everyone loved it! I served it in an 8x8 square pan with the biscuits folded in rows. This is staying in my recipe file for sure!
  3. This is a delicious bread. Looks like you went to a lot of trouble, but it is so easy. I also found this recipe in a Southern Living mag and cut it out. You will get raves when you fix it. DH and I loved it! I really like the idea of using a bundt pan for a neat look! Thanks for posting this where I can find the recipe!


I have been a Central Illinois resident all my life. My hobbies include fishing with my husband, reading, counted cross stitch, and of course, cooking (especially baking)! I currently work in an office, behind a desk, pushing paper. My dream would be to open my own bakery. Spending time in the kitchen is very relaxing to me, and it keeps me connected to my domestic side!
