3⁄4 cup Idaho-E. Oregon yellow onion, finely chopped
1⁄2 cup bacon, diced
1 clove garlic, minced

1⁄4 cup warm water
1 cup warm milk
2 tbsp. sugar
3⁄4 tsp. salt
4-4 1⁄2 cups unsifted flour

1. In a skillet over medium heat, sauté onion, bacon and garlic in oil until golden.

2. In a bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Add milk, sugar, salt and 2 cups flour. Beat until well blended. Stir in onion, bacon and garlic mixture. Add enough extra flour to make a soft dough.
