    Step 1

    Cut the onions in pieces of your desired size. Melt the butter in a heavy pan and bake the onions until they are light yellow. Add the sugar and bake until the onions are a little caramelized. Let it cool.

    Mix the flour, rye flour, salt, yeast and cheese in a bowl. Make a hole and put the onions in it. Add the water and knead. If the dough sticks on the fingers add a tablespoon flour.

    If the ball is stiff, knead it for 10 more minutes on a clean, flat, floured surface. The dough must be strong and resilient.

    Step 5

    Knead the dough again and make balls of your desired size. You can make an onion shape if you like to. Put the balls on a floured griddle and leave them to rest for 30 more minutes covered with a humid tea towel. After the rest cover the breads with a beaten egg.

    Use little bowls so the towel won't touch the bread.
