Herbed Peasant Bread Recipe

The recipe for this beautiful flavorful loaf came from our daughter-in-law, Karen. She's a great cook. Everyone who enjoys a slice of this moist bread asks me for the recipe. It's super used for a sandwich or just served with butter. -Ardath Effa, Villa Park, Illinois

I love making this bread, changing the herbs to what I like, adding garlic to it as well. Makes a great addition to a big pot of soup.

MY REVIEW

This bread is delicious, soft, and moist. Makes great turkey or club sandwiches. Toasting it really enchances the flavor. And if there is EVER any leftover stale bread, you can make croutons, bread crumbs, or use in dressing. I have probably made two hundred loaves of this in the last few years, for gifts and gatherings, and the recipients never stop talking about it. (Only recommendation is to allow plenty of time for the onions to saute and infuse the butter.) Just try it!
