    A stunning bread that is so easy to make with your bread machine. The smell will make it impossible to wait. I use fresh herbs from my garden when they are available. When using fresh herbs, double the amount stated. ENJOY!

    Lovely recipe, smelt amazing whilst cooking and tasted just as nice! A great recipe which I'll definitely use again.  -  16 Sep 2014


    When a friend of mine who had lived in Italy for 2 years had a slice of this, he immediately asked for the recipe! Thanks for making me look skilled in the kitchen. I didn't have all the individual spices so I added 4 tsp Italian seasoning and 1/2 tsp garlic powder instead. I used olive oil in place of the butter for a more Italian flavor, added 5 Tbsp grated Parmesan instead of 3, and reduced the yeast to 2 tsp. ALSO, I noticed several comments about the bread falling. When using cheese in automatic bread machines, be sure that it is mild. Sharp cheese can cause the dough to rise too quickly and then collapse due to the enzymes that some sharp cheeses contain. Hope this helps!  -  24 Jun 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This is a wonderful recipe for bread. I don't use a bread machine and was worried it wouldn't work. It turned out great! The only part of the recipe I changed a bit was the seasonings. I had to use what I could find at the grocery store. It's wonderful just to snack on. My toddler son even loved it! (making the bread the "old fashioned way" I used all purpose flour and set it in a greased bowl in a warm spot, left to rise for about 45 minutes, kneeded it for about 5 min. Then put them in greased (shortening) pan. (I used mini loaf pans) and let rise for about 30 minutes. It ony took about 20 minutes to bake. ( I kept checking)  -  17 Nov 2002  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
