  1. In a small nonstick skillet, saute onion in oil until tender; set aside. Place biscuit mix in a bowl. Combine egg and milk; mix well. Stir into the biscuit mix just until moistened. Stir in the onion mixture, 1/2 cup cheese and poppy seeds.
  2. Transfer to an 8-in. x 4-in. x 2-in. loaf pan coated with nonstick cooking spray. Sprinkle with the remaining cheese. Drizzle with butter. Bake at 400 degrees F 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. Store in the refrigerator.

This bread was very good. The texture was a bit cake-like, but to my mind that just made it more interesting. The poppy seeds were a wonderful touch. I used bacon grease instead of olive oil to ...

I needed something quick to serve with dinner last night and this was it! Loved the poppy seeds in this!! I made this into muffins and got six nice size muffins that rose beautifully. I devia...

I'm a tinker-er, I can't help myself. My family wouldn't touch a poppy seed! I substituted bacon bits (real bacon - not the fake stuff) I also used mini-loaf pans to cut down on the cooking time...

Love it!!! I didn't have popy seeds so I ommited them and I also didn't have onion so I used dehydrated chopped onion. I may try this next time with chives and bacon.

This is a super easy 'go-to' bread. The texture is delicate and cooking the onions till they are slightly browned makes the flavor wonderful.

This was ok but nothing outstanding. I made it with regular Bisquick and full-fat cheese. It had a rather cakey texture which didn't thrill me. Very easy though!
