Preparation

1 In a large bowl of a mixer, dissolve yeast in warm water. Add sugar and 11/2 cups flour. Allow to proof for 30 mintues.
2 After yeast has proofed, with machine on with a dough hook attachment, add salt, oil, beaten eggs, and the rest of the flour one cup at a time. Keep mixer until dough forms a ball, then continue to mix for 5 minutes.
3 Remove dough and place in a large oiled bowl or bag in a warm place. Allow to rise about 11/2 hours.
4 In the meantime, make the onions. In a large saute pan, heat oil over medium heat. Add onion. Allow to carmelize, stirring occasionally for about 30 minutes until golden and sweet.
5 Punch down dough and then add the onions and mix in. Allow to sit for another 10 minutes then knead again and begin shaping.
6 If you want to make a pull apart like the photo, use a round pan, grease and flour, place rolls all around and in the middle. Allow to rise another hour. Then bruss with egg wash and bake at 350 for 30 minutes.
