Onion Herb Bread Recipe

I've been making this easy bread for years. It goes great with a casserole, soup or stew. I've taken it to many picnics and potluck suppers. Many people have asked for the recipe, and they're always surprised at how simple it is to make!

"I have been baking this bread for the better part of 10 years and was disappointed that there are no ratings yet; I will gladly be the first! This bread is easy and flavorful and bakes with a wonderful aroma. I would suggest using sweet onions and chopping them extremely fine - as it bakes they will impart a delicate, sweet flavor. Enjoy!"
