French Onion Bread

The idea for this loaf was born because I had an extra packet of dry french onion soup mix in my pantry that needed to be used. It was left over from a pot roast recipe I put together a few months ago. The idea is simple. Take the packet of soup mix and dump it into a standard bread dough. The soup mix really adds a great taste to the bread. I have to admit, I did feel a bit silly putting soup mix in a bread recipe. Adding soup mixes to recipes is a very Minnesotan thing to do.I'm not sure what I was going for with the shape of the loaf. I just felt like playing with my food. I wish I hadn't cut the cross in the top. My knife wasn't sharp enough to do it right. Replicating this look is simple. Use a third of the dough to make braids and shape the rest into a ball. Then ring the braids around the outside of the ball.I cut up the bread and served it with the Slow-Roasted Cumin and Garlic Pork that I made last night. The onion flavor in the bread worked so well with the pork. Major drool factor!
