The second bread that I really wanted to bake right away was Varada’s ‘Korean Onion Bread’. It looked so colorful and interesting with the onion, pepper and cheese filling and topping. I remember seeing something similar in the local Korean bakery, which was another reason for me try it at home.
I made it for my Mother’s day lunch and the entire loaf was gone by the end of the day. It looked and tasted delicious with the cheesy center and topping.
Original recipe had ham in it and Varada used red peppers instead. I think that was a brilliant idea because red pepper gave the bread a beautiful color and makes it taste hearty & yummy!!
The bread itself has a soft crumb and is quite tasty by itself. Since the veggies are added raw to the bread, it has to be baked longer and also left to finish cooking with the oven turned off. So make sure to follow the instructions carefully to have an evenly baked bread.
