Sweet Onion Savory Bread

Sweet Onion Savory Bread

The simple combination of curry and mayonnaise is superb in this sweet onion loaf. It's the perfect bread for lunch.


Bread dough of your choice
200 g
Sweet onion
1/2 medium
2 to 3 slices
Pizza cheese
Black pepper
3 shakes
about 3 tablespoons
Curry powder
about 1 teaspoon


1. Thinly slice the onion and cut up the bacon.
2. Put the mayonnaise and curry powder directly into a bag.
3. Use your hands to rub and combine the mayonnaise and curry powder. This is the only the prep work.
4. Roll the dough into an oblong shape and place the onion, bacon, and cheese on top. Sprinkle on the black pepper and roll it up.
5. Cut into 6 sections and place it in the bread pan. Let sit for the second rising. If there are too many, bake as individual rolls!
6. After rising, top with cheese. Cut the tip of the bag containing the mayo and curry powder and squeeze on the bread dough.
7. Bake for 16 minutes in an oven preheated to 180°C. (I used a gas oven. Adjust the temperature according to your own oven).
8. Top with a sprinkle of parsley and they're done. It's also really good if you bake each round individually as opposed to making them into a loaf.

Story Behind this Recipe

Last year, I was given 10 kg of onions and they were used up to make this bread.
