"This bread is fantastic. It's quite moist and didn't dry out when cooled like a lot of bread machine recipes. I didn't feel like mincing fresh garlic, so I just used some dried minced onions, but I'm sure fresh garlic would make it even better."

"A Excellent recipe, very flavorful and delightful. We make toast on the 2nd and succeeding days, untill it's gone. This Basil Garlic bread Recipe has replaced our "nooks & cranies" English Muffins, at the kitchen table."
