This is an excellent, easy bread recipe! It makes delicious bread loaves and buns. My family (ranging in age from 70 to 7), raves about it between bites! The only thing I do differently is to brush the top with olive oil as opposed to the egg wash. Comes out perfect every time!
This bread is sooooo delicious. I made it to take to our friends house for dinner and four of us ate both loaves!! I followed the recipe exactly but I used 2 cups all purpose flour and 1 cup bread flour and I did add some kosher salt before baking as well as the Italian seasoning and it was the perfect salty/sweet combination! I also tried to get fancy and braid one of the loaves and it turned out great. I had to bake it for a longer period of time but it was worth it! Thank you for this recipe!!! It is saved and I will be making it again soon!!
This bread is SO good and easy!
Very easy, smells and tastes wonderful! I adapted it for use without a bread machine, since I don't have one. Beautiful, dense and the family loved it. I topped it with Kosher salt instead of Italian seasonings-but I'm sure its great with those too!
OOOOH yummy scrummy and delicious! This was easy and tastes just perfect, a bit sweet and a bit salty, I topped it with crushed kosher salt before baking. Can't wait to eat another slice :)
Can this bread be made by hand? I don't use a bread maker.
This is one of my family's favorite bread machine recipes. I follow the recipe as written, but always add a bit of kosher salt to the Italian seasoning that I sprinkle on top before baking. This gives it a salty-sweet taste that we really enjoy. For those having issues with the recipe, it may help to use whole milk or a mix of half-and-half and milk. I've done this and noticed that the bread is a bit more dense. Thanks for a great recipe!
My whole family loves this recipe, I make it both as oven baked long loaves as well as using my bread machine to cook it. I use it for sandwiches, garlic toast, French toast, as well as for dips & soup as well-it's delicious in every way!!
Love this! I noticed some people have had problems with this recipe. I can tell you mine comes out perfectly every time, but I don't use a bread machine so maybe that's the difference. This bread freezes very well, too.
I have been making this bread for a few years now and we love it! I use regular bread loaf pans instead of the round pans and it turns out perfect every time!
