"I adapted a recipe for herb bread to come up with this flavorful version that's become one of our favorites," writes LeAne Swanson Chab of Palmdale, California. "My bread machine makes a smaller size loaf, which is perfect for my husband and me."
This crusty bread is as big a treat today as it was when Mom made it back when I was growing up. It goes so well with an Italian meal or alongside a big bowl of soup. —Cookie Curci, San Jose, California
"EVERY Italian meal must have its garlic bread, and this recipe is not only delicious but also attractive. It's rich which cheese and butter and colorful with paprika. Auntie Ann always waited until we were all seated before bringing out her garlic bread, warm from the oven."
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!
Serve any main dish with these biscuits from Nancy Zimmerman of Cape May Court House, New Jersey. She writes, “This easy-to-prepare bread incorporates many different flavors including garlic, cheese and various herbs. And it bakes up golden and aromatic.”
Loaded with pizza flavor, these moist muffins are served at Andrea McGee's home regularly. "They're great for lunch but also make good appetizers when baked in mini muffin cups," suggests the Port Alsworth, Alaska reader. "Try adding chopped mushrooms or green pepper to the batter."
