Herbed Tomato Bread

Total Time

Prep: 15 min. Bake: 3-4 hours


1 loaf (1-1/2 pounds) and 1/2 cup spread

I added my favorite herbs to another recipe to create this savory tomato loaf. For extra flavor, I serve it with a garlic chive spread my family loves. In fact, my sister confiscated all the leftovers at our last gathering! Slices of this moist bread also make great grilled cheese sandwiches. -Sherry Letson, Trinity, Alabama
