Fresh-baked yeast rolls are always a hit at dinners. To make it easy on the cook, these start in the bread machine. They are arranged in a tree-shape for the yuletide season, but they can also be baked in a 13- x 9-inch baking pan. —Lorri Reinhardt, Big Bend, Wisconsin
This bread is so full of flavor that spreading butter on it is not necessary. I always hear yums, oohs and aahs when guests take their first bite. It's best served warm, and the next day makes the best toast you've ever had!
I love my bread machine and am always trying new recipes in it. This bread is one of my successes. When it's baking, the whole kitchen smells wonderful. Basil, garlic, chives and Parmesan cheese give this tall tender loaf a real Italian flavor.—Joy McMillan, The Woodlands, Texas
Says Ruth Fanger of Monroe, Oregon, “I developed this recipe in an effort to match the flavors of our favorite store-bought bread, adapting it to a recipe in my bread machine manual. A hearty, great-tasting loaf!”
You're sure to love the heavenly aroma and pleasant herb flavor of this tender bread from Lois Gelzer of Standish, Maine. "It's great with spaghetti and meatballs or most any Italian pasta dish," she suggests.
"After 3 years of trial and error, I came up with a simple and delicious bagel recipe for the bread machine," says John Russel of Greentown, Indiana. "Now I enjoy trying variations, like this fruit and nut favorite."
