- 3/4 cup chopped onion
- 1 tablespoon canola oil
- 1 package (1/4 ounce) active dry yeast
- 1/2 cup warm water (110° to 115°)
- 1/2 cup warm milk (110° to 115°)
- 1/4 cup butter, softened
- 2 eggs
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- 1-1/2 teaspoons salt
- 3-1/2 to 4 cups all-purpose flour
- 2 tablespoons cold water
- 2 tablespoons sesame seeds
- 1 tablespoon poppy seeds
- In a small skillet, saute onion in oil until tender; cool. In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Add the milk, butter, 1 egg, sugar, salt, and 1 cup flour. Beat on medium speed for 2 minutes. Stir in onion and enough remaining flour to form a soft dough.
- Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, 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.
- Punch dough down. Let stand for 10 minutes. Turn onto a lightly floured surface; divide into 32 pieces. Shape each piece into an 8-in. rope. Place 2 in. apart on greased baking sheets. Cover and let rise for 15 minutes.
- Beat cold water and remaining egg; brush over breadsticks. Sprinkle half with sesame seeds and half with poppy seeds. Bake at 350° for 16-22 minutes or until golden brown. Remove to wire racks. Yield: 2 dozen.
Reviews for Soft Onion Breadsticks

These were good; left out the toppings. The outside was rather crusty. The printed recipe in the TOH Cookbook has a typo with the "1 egg" being added twice to the dough. After I did that I didn't have one to brush on the top. The online recipe looks like it is correct.
Tasty breadsticks! These came out better than I expected them to. I varied the "toppings" to just sesame seeds, sesame seeds and grated parmesan cheese mixture, and basil, parsley, and parmesan cheese mixture. The fam thought they were great!!
Loved these breadsticks!
I made these with soup, and my family gobbled them up! I would add more onion, and will when I make these again. My dough took longer to rise, but it was a simple and delicious recipe.
