Servings 8 servings


  • 4 cups (500 grams) bread flour
  • 3 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon active dry yeast
  • 12 oz water (room temperature)
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 medium onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 medium egg, mixed with 1 tablespoon water
  • 1/2 cup shredded asiago cheese


  • In a large bowl, combine flour, salt, and yeast. Drizzle in water, and honey and stir dough with a wooden spoon until a slightly-sticky dough forms. Cover bowl with plastic wrap and let sit at room temperature overnight or 18-24 hours.
  • The next day, preheat oven to 425F. Lightly grease a baking sheet and set aside. In a medium skillet, caramelize onions in butter over medium heat, stirring occasionally until onions are a deep golden brown. Remove from heat and cool completely.
  • Punch risen dough down and gently knead caramelized onions into dough. Gather dough into a smooth ball and place on prepared pan. With a sharp knife, cut a few slits in the top and brush with beaten egg and sprinkle with asiago cheese. Let rise 30 minutes until doubled in size.
  • Bake bread at 400F 30-35 minutes or until bread is a deep golden brown. Cool loaf on a wire cooling rack slightly then slice and serve warm. Enjoy!
