Onion & Italian Herb Stuffed Bread

You are going to love this one. After frying a little onion, garlic and Italian seasonings you place the mixture on the rolled out dough, roll it up cinnamon bun style and you have a wonderful stuffed herb bread. I made the dough in my bread machine on the dough setting. You can easily do this with a Kitchenaid mixer using a dough hook. This is a little softer crusted bread because anytime you use milk in a dough, the bread comes out a little softer. I can’t wait to cut into this one! Enjoy!

Ingredients for the dough
3 teaspoons Instant active dried yeast
2 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon salt
4 cups bread flour
1 cup milk
1 tablespoon vinegar
1/4 cup water
1/4 cup melted butter

Filling
2 tablespoons butter
1/2 cup minced onion
1 clove garlic chopped
1 teaspoon Italian seasonings
salt and pepper to taste

Combine all dough ingredients. Knead until smooth 5-10 minutes. Place dough in a greased bowl, cover and let rise until doubled (about 1 hour) Or use dough setting in bread machine.
While waiting for dough to rise, fry the filling ingredients in a small pan. Set aside.
Roll dough into a 16×8 inch rectangle shape. Spread herb mixture over dough, starting from the 16 inch side, roll the dough up tightly like a jelly roll. Place the bread seam side down onto a greased pan, cover, let rise until doubled in size. Brush with egg wash and sprinkle with Italian seasonings. Bake for 30 minutes at 400 degrees or until golden brown.

    Looks like another winner! ๐Ÿ™‚

    OT, but I have a question. I have a friend who “struggles” in the kitchen. He’s skittish about baking bread and has been looking at breadmakers. Any suggestions? What kind do you have? He doesn’t want anything fancy or complicated.

    Mucho gracias!

  2. Susan I have the Zojirushi bread machine and LOVE it. As long as the machine has a dough setting, you are all good. I use it a lot lately. It rises the bread perfectly every time. Then all you do is form it in any shape you want and let it rise again on your counter. Never a bad bread.

    I can almost smell it! Wish I were there.

    Wow, that looks good. I will make this one for sure. Now I am hungry, thanks Carol.

  5. Susan Lind says:

    Thanks, Carol. Is it really easy to use?

  6. Susan Lind says:

    Oh, shoot, and which model? There are several, from what I’m seeing.

  7. Susan, it is easy for me. The only hard part (that I need to read the directions for) is setting the timer to turn it on say in the morning. I really don’t use that feature anyways. They sell a smaller machine that I’m sure would be great too. It makes a huge bread. My only problem is how to cover/bag such a big loaf after I make it. lol!

    Great, thanks for the help!
