I love this bread! My grandmother was mostly blind and she would have me read recipes off the flour wrappers. She asked me to read her this one and she decided to make it. It was a hit. Wherever she would visit, everyone would ask her to make it for them. I will have to try to make it myself now that I have found the recipe once again. I hope I can make it as good as grandma made!

I remember my mom making this awesome bread back in the 1970s -- but she lost the recipe and forgot where she originally got it. Surprisingly, "Onion Lover's Twist" was a clue in some version of Trivial Pursuit I was playing, and when it came up, I suddenly realized that was the long-lost bread!!! I follow the recipe with one exception: I use two cloves of real garlic, minced, rather than garlic salt.

This was simply excellent. The dough was a dream to work with and the filling was divine. I did individual buns (16 of them) instead of one whole bread. I rolled out the dough into a large rectangle then cut it into squares, put some filling in the middle of each one , sealed it up and placed seam side down in a baking tray, let them rise 30 mins then baked them as directed. Also great with an egg wash and sprinkled with sesame seeds.

Not too difficult to make. This is a great bread to have with soup on a cold winter night!

I just happened to remember making this bread over 10 years ago from a Pillsbury bake-off cookbook I had. I don't have to book with me anymore and decided to see if this site had the recipe and I am so happy I found it!%0d%0a%0d%0aI just loooove this bread so much. because I like the onions caramelized more than raw, I did cook the onion mixture and added the sesame seeds at the end of cooking. %0d%0a%0d%0aI haven't tried it leaving the onions raw before baking but the way I did it makes it DELICIOUS and everyone who tried it loved it. I remember once making 10 loaves of this to give away. I can't believe I forgot all about this!!

This recipe is a real "POPPER"! One of the most savory and succulent tasting breads I have ever enjoyed. It is a fantastic compliment with any meat or fowl main course entry you serve.
It also can be enjoyed as a side with stews and soups. Very great, lingering, aftertaste anyone that likes onion flavor will really enjoy---and quite simple to make---and makes a beautiful presentation!

I first made this bread after finding the recipe in a Bake Off paperback book in the late seventies. Have long since lost the book but have been making the recipe ever since. It easily impresses but is easy and fun to make and remains one of my alltime favorites. L Edel, Freesoil, MI.

Growing up in the 70's this was one of the favorite treats at home. Whenever family or friends would visit my Mom would bake one of these (usually accompanied with Manhattan Clam Chowder).%0d%0a%0d%0aGreat taste, great memories.%0d%0a%0d%0aGary in Massena
