Step by Step Method

Step 1

Combine flour, salt and onion powder in a large bowl with a wire whisk.

Step 2

Pour 1/2 cup of the water into another large bowl, along with the 1/4 cup sugar and oil. Pour the other half cup of water in a cup along with 1 teaspoon sugar and yeast. Let yeast mixture "bloom"** for about 5 minutes. Then pour the yeast into bowl with water, sugar and oil, and also add beaten egg. Whisk it in.

Step 3

Then add the flour mixture a cup at a time and mix in with a spoon until it gets too thick to work with. Then use your hands to mix it in.

Step 4

On a clean surface, sprinkle about 1/4 cup of additional flour. Dump dough out onto floured surface and knead for 10 minutes. If it gets too sticky, spray the surface with non-stick spray instead of using more flour. Then place the dough in a lightly greased bowl or other container large enough to allow it to at least double in bulk, cover with a kitchen towel, and let it rise for about 60 to 70 minutes, till it's just about doubled.

Step 5

Transfer the dough to a lightly greased work surface, and pat/roll it into a 12" x 17" rectangle if making buns. If making a loaf of bread, roll into an 8" x 12" rectangle.

Step 6

Sprinkle the dough with the minced onion, and press/roll it into the surface gently.

Step 7

Starting with a short end, roll the dough into a log, sealing the ends and side seam.

Step 8

If making buns, cut the log into eight slices.

Step 9

Place the buns on a lightly greased or parchment-lined baking sheet, flattening them to about 3" wide. Cover them with a kitchen towel, and allow them to rise in a warm place till they're very puffy, about 1 hour. Towards the end of the rising time, preheat the oven to 375°F.

Step 10

If making a loaf of bread, roll it up and put it in a loaf baking pan that has been sprayed with non-stick cooking spray. Cover and let rise.

Step 11

Bake the buns or bread in preheated 375°F oven for 20 to 25 minutes, until they're golden brown and and sound hollow when you tap them on the bottom.

Step 12

Remove them from the oven, and cool on a rack. When completely cool, wrap in plastic, and store at room temperature

Step 13

Step 14

**Blooming yeast: Allowing yeast, warm water and sugar to get foamy. That way you know the yeast is active and working.
