Herb-Crusted Bread Recipe

Minced onion and garlic plus a sprinkling of dill help perk up the flavor in this wholesome rustic-looking loaf. "The dough mixes up easily in a bread machine," comments Becky Steinberger of Denmark, Wisconsin. "I like to serve this crusty bread alongside soup, pasta and saucy tomato dishes."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 15, 2014

Of course I would give it 5 stars, it's my recipe. But, they altered my recipe when they published it. For oats you are supposed to use 1/4 c oat flour. I use my kitchen aid stand mixer for the bread. My loaves come out nicer looking than the pic. I put the yeast and sugar in the water first and let it sit 5 minutes. This is new. I do this to be sure the yeast is good and active. I hope you try this recipe. It is very good.

The flavor is amazing! I didn't have a bread machine. I don't think my bread raised properly.
