Kalamata Olive Bread

Just realized this recipe got lost in the blog revision. Don't have a picture, but it's quite lovely when you make it!

Kalamata Olive Bread

Mix together in a large mixing bowl and let set until foamy:
1 cup warm water
2 pkgs dry yeast
1 tsp sugar

Sauté until lightly browned and set aside to cool:
1 medium onion, chopped fine
2 tbsp olive oil

Then add to yeast mixture:
1 cup flour
1 cup Kalamata olives, pitted and chopped
1 tsp thyme
1 tsp salt
1/4 cup olive oil

Mix together with the onions and knead in more flour (about 3 cups) until you have a smooth, non-sticky dough. Cover and let rise until doubled in bulk. Punch down the dough and shape into a ball. Place in a greased glass or ceramic pie dish, flatten the ball and lightly grease the dough with a little butter or oil, then let rise, covered, until doubled in size. Bake 50 min in 350 degree oven. Brush the top with milk and bake for 10 more minutes.
