Onion Yeast Bread Recipe

This is an old recipe of my mother's. She was often asked to make it for the annual banquet hosted by our church's youth group.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 25 min. + rising Bake: 20 min. + cooling YIELD:24 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 packages active dry yeast
  • 1/2 cup warm water (110° to 115°)
  • 1-1/2 cups warm milk (110° to 115°)
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 tablespoons shortening
  • 1 envelope onion soup mix
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 4-3/4 to 5-1/4 cups all-purpose flour

Directions

  • 1. In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Add the milk, sugar, shortening, soup mix, salt and 3 cups flour; beat until smooth. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a soft dough.
  • 2. Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.
  • 3. Punch dough down. Turn onto a lightly floured surface; divide in half. Shape into loaves. Place in two greased 8-in. x 4-in. loaf pans. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 30 minutes.
  • 4. Bake at 375° for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from pans to wire racks to cool. Yield: 2 loaves.
