This goes down as the family's favorite! Suggestions: Use 1-1/2 cups bread flour and 1-1/2 cups whole wheat to make a lighter bread. I let bread machine do whole thing. Why take out of machine to let rise & then bake? Make sure to choose whole wheat cycle which gives more time to rise. Read More

One of the best wheat bread recipes I have made in my 50 years as a cook/baker. My hubby and inlaws grandkids love it! I recommend this if you wish to impress somebody. I did add a bit more water to the recipe The dough rose beautifully and the aroma was wonderful! I made one round loaf after it came from the oven I put real cream sweet butter on the top of the crust. Thanks for offering this special bread recipe.!! Read More

Moist tasty bread. I think substituting some rye flour for wheat would be good. Did not rise much with no white flour. Next time I would add some gluten. Read More

I modified the recipe by using equal parts of white rye and whole wheat flour. This made a good bread but it didn't taste as good as it smelled when it was baking. The loaf was so hot when I cut the first slice that I almost burned myself. Read More

This was a good bread recipe although I agree with some reviewers that the onion soup mix smelled good but the taste just wasn't there in the finished product (and my kids didnt' like the chunks of onion or the idea of onions in bread). I made the recipe again without the soup mix and ended up with a delicious soft and tender whole wheat bread that was perfect with honey or apple butter. I made it into rolls and they freeze nicely.

This is a very good recipe. I baked it in the bread machine too. I used the wheat flour made for bread machine baking. I used the "wheat" setting on the machine with a light crust. The loaf came out moist & the texture was perfect. The flavor is very savory. If only I'd had some cream cheese to spread on it...:-) Read More

Even though I adapted this recipe a little, I give it 5 stars. It is unique and delicious! I add some sauteed onions and also some onion flkes to make it more "onionny" since many reviewers said it wasn't. Mine turned out with a great aroma AND great flavor! Read More

This is so good! For the recipe I added one cup white flour and one cup wwheat. But I will have to add some more onion next time. I used 1/4 of a cup and it wasn't enough we wanted a strong onion flavour. But it was super moist DH toasted it in the morning as well. I baked it in the oven as requested because my bread maker is for a 2 pound loaf so i didn't want to over bake it in my bread maker. It is so good will for sure make it again! Thanx! Read More
