Ingredients

  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1-1/2 cups reduced-fat biscuit/baking mix

Bake at 400° for 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean and loaf is golden brown. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack to cool completely.

"The sauteed onions seem to really make this a moist bread. Good, but next time I think I'd add a little salt."
