The Prepared Pantry

Sour Cream Onion Gourmet Bread Mix

Make this with your bread machine, stand-type mixer, or by hand.

SKU: M28-1

Can I use this mix in my 1 pound capacity or 1.5 pound capacity bread machine?

We have designed our mixes specifically for 2 lb. capacity machines. However, you may still find success with 1.5 lb. capacity machines. You may expect to see the top of the loaf touch the lid of the machine towards the end of the baking cycle. This may lead to imperfect baking in that one spot on the loaf. The rest of the loaf should be fine. For 1 lb. bread machines, we recommend only running the bread on the dough cycle and then transfer the dough to a pan for baking in a conventional oven. See packaging for more info.

Why do the directions ask me to use a thermometer?

Yeast is very sensitive to heat and other environmental factors. We have tested and designed our mixes to find the sweet spot for yeast activity to get the best rise. Even just a few degrees off on water temperature can make a big impact on the quality of your bread. Measuring the temperature of your water accurately is the best way to ensure consistently successful bread baking.

I followed the directions exactly and I see had a problem with my bread? What can I do?

Sometimes bread issues happen. We are happy to help. Send us a picture of your bread and a picture of the back packaging of your bread mix to our customer support email at Include as much detail as possible about your baking process and bread machine model so we can troubleshoot the cause of the issue.

Should I adjust my mix for high altitudes?

We don't recommend making any changes to the mix for high altitudes. We have tested our mixes in a variety of locations and have fine tuned each mix to be the best product possible.

I don't have a bread machine or a stand-type mixer. Can I still make this bread in my oven?


This bread is better than you expect--definitely worth a try.  See how many people say this is their "absolute favorite" mix.

"I don't like sour cream. I don't like onions. BUT, I Love this bread. I received this mix as a gift and made it so that it doesn't go to waste. Now, I'm looking to buy more. You can't taste the sour cream. Better than an onion bagel and much softer. Seriously, a great loaf of bread. This is what friends are for!!"  Mongo627

"OMG, I was a little skeptical but decided to try it, and glad I did. My Husband thinks this is definitely a keeper. Flavor and texture are the best. I'll be buying this again. So happy I found Prepared Pantry."  Diane D Auser 


This is simply a refined white bread--the sour cream makes a little moister with a nice, tight crumb.  The onions give it just enough flavor.

"My absolute favorite bread. The taste of this bread is wonderful. And the smell of it baking is divine."  Patricia Robinson

"Heavenly. This mix is pure heaven! The taste of onion is just right, not too strong, and just enough to know it is clearly onion. It smelled so yummy as it baked. This will make the perfect "bun" for our homemade burgers for dinner tonight!"

  Loretta Moreland 

"The BEST loaf here. We are huge fans of this mix!! Beyond the phenomenal yummy taste, the smell it gives the house when it’s cooking is amazing. We’ve used this for sandwiches, toads in the whole breakfast, and even slathered with garlic butter for a quick garlic bread. Hoping and praying this one never goes out of stock!"  J

"Ridiculously amazing. The bread is packed with flavor, with a very soft center with an amazing crust. . . . it makes great sandwiches and toasts up magnificently well."  Rob Waters
