I really want to try this bread - could it be frozen, and re-warmed before serving?

My sister shared this recipe with me so I decided to make it with a twist. I only had half a Vidalia onion so I added 3 cloves of minced garlic to the onions as they cooked. I added fresh chopped parsley and fresh thyme to the batter. This bread is delicious and quick to make. I envision making this bread in the fall to be served with homemade soups and stew.

Great with pasta and a salad.
