Apple Onion Bread with Cheddar Cheese





From the kitchen of One Perfect Bite...This is a wonderfully savory bread that can be made by beginners, but it's so flavorful I suspect that experienced bakers will try it as well. Mary Woodruff develop this prize winning recipe for the Vidalia Onion Festival. A "cheat" gets the recipe off to a quick start. A packaged hot roll mix is used as a base for the loaf. What makes this bread a standout are the ingredients added to the dough. Purists can add those "extras" to a homemade dough and achieve the same results. This is the winning recipe.

Apple Onion Bread with Cheddar Cheese...from the kitchen of One Perfect Bite

Ingredients:
1 tablespoon butter
1 large apple, diced
1/2 cup chopped sweet onion
1 (16-oz.) package hot roll mix
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
2 tablespoons chopped red bell pepper
1 tablespoon caraway seeds
1 egg, slightly beaten
1 cup hot water

Directions:
1) Melt butter in a small skillet set over medium heat. Add apple and onion and saute until tender. Set aside.
2) Place contents of roll mix in a large bowl. Open yeast package and whisk into flour. Stir in cheese, red pepper and caraway seeds; mix well. Add egg, water and apple-onion mixture; mix with a wooden spoon until mixture pulls away from sides of bowl.
3) Transfer dough to a lightly floured work surface; knead for 5 minutes.
4) Return dough to bowl; cover with plastic wrap and let dough rest for 5 minutes.
5) Grease a 6 to 8 cup bread pan. Place dough in pan; cover with plastic wrap and let it rise for 30 minutes.
6) Meanwhile, preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
7) Bake the bread for 30 to 35 minutes, until golden brown and loaf sounds hollow when thumped. Yield: 1 loaf.


I'm linking this recipe to Wild Yeast for the weekly Yeast Spotting event.

wow, I've never heard of this, but it is a good combination in salads. I 'love mixing sweet and savory.

Cathy said...

Love the apple and onion combo, Mary. Its still to hot to bake here, but this is on my must bake list. I especially like that it starts with a hot roll mix.

I bet it will make great sandwiches.

Allie said...

What a terrific combination! I can tell I would love it. Your loaf came out just perfectly.

I haven't been baking lately, it's too darn hot over here. I'm having withdrawals.

Faith said...

What a great combination of flavors in this bread! I can think of so many sandwich toppings that would wonderfully compliment the bread!

Natashya said...

What a great combination of flavours!
I have never seen a packaged hot dog roll mix, but I imagine the additions would be excellent in a good eggbread recipe.

I love onions. I go through onions like crazy. If a recipe calls for a half cup, I add a whole cup. Just love them! THis bread will taste good this fall.

Oh how I love the breads. This one sounds so good I may have to break down and try it. I will need to keep up my strength as the new road crew groupie won't I.

Chef Fresco said...

LK, several years ago PBS did a series of local festivals and winning recipes. I've cited the festival.

Madam Chow said...

This looks so good, but I have a confession to make: I don't know what roll mix is! Is there a brand that you use that you like?

Mary said...

Madam Chow, Pillsbury makes a hot roll mix. It can be found in the baking aisle. However, you can also take your favorite roll recipe and incorporate the apple, onion and cheese into it as well.

Pam said...

I've never had a bread like this before but I know I would LOVE it.

Sara said...

Mmmmmmmmmmm....This looks delicious!
