1 1/4 cups of warm water
1 pkg of yeast
2 TBs oil
2 tsp sugar
1 tsp salt
3 1/2 cups of flour (more if needed)
You can stop here and just make plain bread, It also makes great sandwiches.
For onion bread I add 1/2 tsp of onion powder and some minced onions to the liquid before adding the flour. Regular minced onions work fine. In this batch I used 1 tsp of dried onion flakes..
Knead for 5 minutes...
Cover and let it rise for 1 hour..
