Original recipe makes 2 - 1 1/2 pound loaves Change Servings


  1. Warm the milk in a small saucepan until it bubbles, then remove from heat. Let cool until lukewarm. In a large bowl, stir together yeast, warm water, and 1 teaspoon sugar. Set aside to proof.
  2. Add milk, 2 2/3 tablespoons sugar, salt, butter or margarine, flour, and soup mix to the yeast in the bowl. Combine until dough forms, and then turn out on a lightly floured surface. Knead until dough is elastic. Oil a large bowl. Place the dough in the bowl, and turn several times to coat. Cover the bowl with a damp cloth, and set aside in a warm place to rise for 30 minutes.
  3. Divide dough in half. Shape into loaves, and place into two greased 8 1/2 x 4 1/2 inch bread pans. Set aside to rise for 30 minutes.
  4. Bake at 375 degrees F (190 degrees C) for 40 minutes. Loaf will sound hollow when done.

This bread is excellent and very quick and easy to make. I only had one package of yeast so I was only able to make one loaf. I did sprinkle kosher salt and some mixed herbs on top during the second rising period. One other note is that this bread sticks very bad to your pan so make sure you use lots of shortening to grease the loaf pan.

We didn't care for it. It didn't have much of an onion flavor. It didn't rise very well either, maybe it was my yeast.

This recipe is delicious and pretty easy. I added real minced onions and garlic instead of the mix and it turned out great. Thanks for posting!

Fabulous bread! It looks just like a loaf you would get from the supermarket, but tastes even better. I cut the recipe in half and it worked very well. Don't change a thing!

I only make 1 loaf at a time, but I use the entire package of dry onion soup mix for half of the recipe. 5 stars made this way!

Made this for the first time today and it was wonderful! I used water instead of milk to make it non-dairy, and it was still perfect. Garnished with chopped onion before I baked it. My dad couldn't believe I made it!

My family and I really like this yummy recipe. I only made one loaf, but I still used an entire packet of the soup mix because I like the stronger onion flavor. It was my first try at baking bread on my own (just last night, without a stand mixer or bread machine for help) and to my surprise, the loaf baked up perfectly. It's delicious! I added a small handful of canned mushrooms that I dried out a bit in the oven first, and then I topped the loaf off with a few sliced spanish olives to make it look different. This bread makes tasty ham sandwiches, or it can just be eaten alone. I will be making this one again soon.

This came together nicely, it's just taking donkey's years to rise. Almost two hours later and it's finally risen to almost the top of the loaf pan! I'll edited my review later after I've baked it and we've tried it with dinner.
