A great versatile cheese bread. I cut them into sticks to go with an Italian meal also a great side with tomato soup. I agree that the thyme is too strong so I exchange it for some of our other favorite herbs. Taste's great and takes no time at all!
I have been wanting to make this recipe for a couple of years. Tonight I did. It was easy and quick, but I did not like the taste. The thyme was a little overwhelming. I know I could switch the herbs to my liking but I was rating the recipe on the recipe as stated. And as stated, I wasn't thrilled, nor was my bread eating family. I will try again with different herbs and spices. Thanks again for the recipe!
An old favourite. We all love this for a snack.
I made this in my bread machine using the dough setting. I had some thin spots, so next time I'll need to make sure I pat it evenly in the pan. The bread was delicious. I added some oregano to the dough and used olive oil instead of canola oil.
