Announcing Bread Baking Day #43: Onion Breads

Last Sunday I had the good fortune to eat at Volt restaurant in Frederick, Maryland. Volt, in case it doesn't sound familiar, is owned by Bryan Voltaggio, one of the past contestants on Top Chef. One of the menu items was Biscuits and Gravy. These, however, weren't just any biscuits. They were delicious scallion biscuits, topped with a home-made-sausage gravy. So delicious!

Monday morning, when I read my email, I was delighted to find that I had been asked to host this month's edition of Bread Baking Day. How perfect was that timing!

Bread Baking Day is the monthly event for bread-lovers everywhere, creat
ed by the talented and gracious, Zorra from 1x umr├╝hren bitte . Each month, the current host chooses a theme and calls on all bread bakers to get creative and submit their freshly baked bread by the beginning of the following month.

The previous roundup, Bread Baking Day #42, was hosted by Palmira of Come Conmigo El Blog de Palmira. Do stop by Palmira's blog and see all the delicious picnic breads that were submitted.

Because of my tasty experience at Volt, I chose the theme of Onion Breads for BBD43. Let your imaginations run wild! Just use some kind of onion in your bread -- chives, scallions, shallots, spring onions, leeks, red, yellow, or white onions; diced or sliced or whole; caramelized or roasted or sauteed. The form of the bread is up to you.

Here's how to participate in Bread Baking Day #43:

  • Bake any kind of bread that includes some kind of onion
  • Post about it on your blog with a link back to this post

  • Subject line: BBD#43: Onion Breads

  • Deadline for submission is September 1, 2011

No crying now. I'm looking forward to seeing all the yummy bread!
