This is a very full flavor loaf that is well worth the effort. The basic recipe is the Eric's Fav Rye link. This onion rye has 1/4 cup of re hydrated onions and the water used to rehydrate them. The smell coming out of the oven will make you a believer. Then I brushed the top of the loaf with egg wash and topped with my "Everything" seed mix for bagels plus a little kosher salt. I hope you try this bread.
The crumb is moist and chewy. The smell of onions and taste of the seeds is a very savory experience. It is better than any bagel I have made and is begging for smoked meats.
