"I thought this bread sounded good and I wasn't disappointed. It was wonderful. I didn't have shallots so used chopped onions instead and added a little minced garlic. It turned out beautifully. Excellent flavor and very easy to make. Next time I may add just a little dill weed and see how that tastes. My entire family loved it and I'll definitely make it again and again."
