Onion Bread

Q: How many onions did you put in this bread?
A: Just one-ion.

300g bread flour
100g water
5g salt
7g yeast
1 large onion (minced)

Mix up everything but the onion, then go watch one episode of Rocky and Bullwinkle while the ingredients autolyze. Knead dough for about five minutes, then rise until doubled. Roll out the dough and fold in the onion. Proof for 45 minutes while preheating the oven to 450˚ F. Make slashes with a knife for the oven spring. Bake for a half hour.

I love it when I get the crust just right and then the bread sits there just crackling at you on the counter. It’s exciting.
