    Oh my goodness this bread is adorable, served with olive oil, herb’s, parmesan and garlic! I did make a few small changes to the recipe, I put dried rosemary in a Ziploc bag and crushed with the back of a spoon, so that I did not have long hard grains through the bread, but I still wanted the taste! Increased Italian seasoning to ½ teaspoon. After removing the dough from the bread machine, I kneaded dough and let sit in a covered bowl for 30 minutes. Shaped, placed on a baking sheet and cooked for 30 minutes, removed from the oven and glazed with olive oil and topped with crushed sea salt and Italian seasoning and baked for a further 1o minutes. Delicious!  -  21 Feb 2010


    Fantastic recipe, delicious results. We used the extra Italian herbs as suggested by others. We baked using the Russell Hobbs 18036 breadmaker on the P1 (White) small setting. Will be making many more times!  -  06 Jan 2014
