Caramelized red onion and cheese butter bread

250g Strong bread flour

8g sea salt

8g dry yeast

5g caster sugar

160g warm water

500g red onion

50g soft butter

50g comte cheese (can be substituted for another semi hard cheese such as cheddar)

(2) In a bowl add sifted flour, sea salt, sugar

(3) Mix dry yeast with warm water

(4) Slowly add yeast and water to flour whilst continuously mixing, continue to mix to form a smooth dough

(6) Knock back dough and fold in butter, caramelized onion and comte cheese

(7) Continue to knead dough until all is fully incorporated
