Remove ½ of frozen loaf from freezer quickly chop into large cubes, repeat until all is chopped. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Gradually mix mixture with thawed bread cubes in large pan. Thoroughly mix eggs and milk mixture and drizzle over top of bread cubes. Place any extra onion scraps over top bake for 45 minutes at 350 covered but last 10 minutes.
