Onion-Garlic-Herb Bread

A few days ago we went somewhere and there was a garlic herb bread that someone had made, I only had a chance to smell it (I didn't taste it or see the recipe) so I'm not sure how close this is to it. Originally, I was planning to make a onion bread today, but I decided to add basil and oregano as well. We served it with salad and cottage cheese for lunch. 

  • 1 ½ cups warm water, 100-115 degrees Fahrenheit
  • 1 tablespoon yeast
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • ¼ cup minced onion (dried)
  • 1 teaspoon basil
  • 1 teaspoon oregano
  • ¼ garlic powder
  • 1 ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 3 1/3 cups flour (I use whole wheat)
In a large bowl, mix water, yeast, and sugar. Let sit five minutes, until foamy. Stir in the remaining ingredients. Knead for 5 minutes. Let rise for 1 ½ hours.
Divide the dough into two balls. Roll each ball out into a 10x8 inch rectangle. Roll up, starting at the 10-inch side. Pinch at seams and roll into a 16-18 inch “log”, tapering the ends. Let rise for 45-60 minutes. Preheat oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit. Slash top of loaves every couple inches with a sharp knife. 
Optional: With a fork beat 1 egg white with 1 tablespoon of water. Brush onto the loaves to get a shiny-golden look.

Bake for 15 minutes.
