FRENCH ONION BREAD

This is an old recipe from my late mother's recipe files.

1 pkg dry yeast
2 cups lukewarm water
4 cups sifted flour
1 tbs. sugar
2 tsp. salt
4 tbs. onion soup mix

Dissolve the yeast in 1 cup of the luke warm water. Sift flour,sugar, and salt together in a large bowl, then add onion soup mix. Stir in dissolved yeast and add enough of the second cup of water to hold dough together. Mix until you have a soft sticky dough. Cover and let rise to double. Punch down and beat well by hand. Divide in 2 sections and place in 6-inch round glass casserole dishes. Let rise to double and then bake in 375 degree oven for 50 to 60 minutes or until bread is brown and crusty. Brush top with butter. Makes 2 round loaves.
