Herbed Tomato Bread Recipe

I added my favorite herbs to another recipe to create this savory tomato loaf. For extra flavor, I serve it with a garlic chive spread my family loves. In fact, my sister confiscated all the leftovers at our last gathering! Slices of this moist bread also make great grilled cheese sandwiches. -Sherry Letson, Trinity, Alabama

"I switched out a few things: I added fresh chopped onion, fresh basil and chopped sun dried tomatoes!!! I was out of fresh parsley and dried tarragon. There wasn't a crumb left!!!"

"Mulanw that sounds like a yeast issue. Make sure your yeast is fresh and active, try heating the milk / water to a bit warmer temp. Closer to 100 degrees."

"I tried two times with this recipe, but failed two times, It didn't rise to full size as my other breads, and the top is very rough and uneven. My machine PANASONIC SD-YD250. Any suggestions?"

"This bread was absolutely delicious! I'm a bit of a basil lover, so I switched out 1 of the tablespoons of parsley for chopped basil, and I'm more of a thyme and oregano than tarragon person, so I switched there as well, and this was *wonderful*.

It toasts beautifully, and went perfectly with a roasted tomato and pesto cheese spread! I would definitely make this again, and in fact just gave the recipe to a friend."
