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!

"This bread had a wonderful flavor, but didn't seem to rise very well for me. I wasn't able to be at home when the bread machine was mixing, so maybe it needs more water? I liked the flavor well enough to give this recipe another shot. I substituted 1 and 1/4 T. of dried minced onion and used 1 t. of garlic powder and NO dill weed (not a fan)."

"This is wonderful. I use 1/2 tsp dried onion powder instead of the onion. My family fights over who gets the most of this bread. Wonderful texture and flavor. I am tempet to make 2 since we go through it so fast."

"I made this bread without use of bread machine. It's yummy! We had it with Tomato Basil Bisque Soup, also excellent, (TOH-Jun-07)

I try bread machine recipes the regular way first and then make them in a bread machine at out mountain cabin. At 6000 ft, I can't get bread to rise except in the bread machine."
