Herbed Onion Bread

I really enjoy the convenience of my bread machine and use it often. Of all the recipes I've made in it, this is one of the best. The wonderful aroma while this herbed bread is baking makes it hard to wait for a savory slice.

    This is a wonderful recipe! I made it for the first time today and it came out perfectly moist and full of flavor. I added 1 tablespoon of milled flaxseed and increased the water to 3 1/2 tablespoons.

    Awesome! Perfect with a wild rice soup I threw together yesterday . My husband loved it! I'll be making this one again.

    Very easy to make, and enjoyed by the family. I'm not sure that we enjoyed it enough for 5 stars, but both my parents said it was make again bread.

    This is absolutely the BEST bread we have ever eaten. It is now our family favorite and make it often. We did change it a little though. We use milk and fresh onions. It's the BEST!

    This bread is divine! It's so tasty to go with soups, meats, EVERYTHING! Plus, since it's made in the bread machine, it's prepped ahead of time and done when you want the meal to be served. I have made this for years and will make it for many more!
