1 tablespoon active dry yeast 2 tablespoons white sugar 1 teaspoon salt 3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour 1 cup milk 1 tablespoon distilled white vinegar 1/4 cup water 1/4 cup margarine 1/2 cup minced onion 1 clove garlic, minced 1/2 teaspoon salt 1 tablespoon minced parsley 2 tablespoons margarine
In a large bowl combine the yeast, sugar, 1 teaspoon of the salt and 1 1/2 cups of the flour. In a sauce pan combine the milk, water and 1/4 cup of the butter or margarine until 110 degrees F (38 degrees C). Add milk mixture and vinegar to the flour mixture and blend at low speed of the mixer until moistened. Beat at medium speed for 3 minutes. Stir in 1 1/2 cups additional flour to form a sticky dough. Turn dough out onto a floured surface and knead adding 1/2 to 1 cup more flour until dough is smooth and pliable. Place dough in a greased bowl and let rise in a warm place until doubled in volume.
Punch down dough and roll into a rectangle shape about 16x8 inches. In a saucepan heat the onion, garlic, 1/2 teaspoon salt, parsley and 2 tablespoons butter or margarine until butter or margarine is melted. Spread over the dough rectangle and starting from the 16 inch side roll the dough up tightly like a jelly roll. Place the bread seam side down onto a greased cookie sheet and let rise until doubled in sized.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (205 degrees C). Bake bread until golden brown about 20 to 30 minutes. Brush hot bread with melted butter and sprinkle with chopped parsley.
