"Of all the breads I make, this is my husband's favorite," writes Marilyn Smith from Green Bay, Wisconsin. The subtle honey and oat flavor makes it perfect for toast or sandwiches...or as a side with a hot bowl of soup.
I really enjoy the convenience of my bread machine and use it often. Of all the recipes I've made in it, this is one of the best. The wonderful aroma while this herbed bread is baking makes it hard to wait for a savory slice.
