This is wonderful with spaghetti, lasagna, or another Italian dish, but my family likes it with almost anything. It's very good if made the day before you need it, then split down the middle, buttered, and reheated at mealtime. I use a bread machine, but it can be made without. I like to use the dough cycle, then bake it in a French loaf pan.

I obviously wanted to give this a taste before I wrote my review and blush four slices later here I am. This bread is wonderful! I forgot to add the dry milk powder and that may just be one of the reasons why I liked this bread so much - dry milk powder helps to make a soft and fluffy bread and I much prefer something sturdier which this was. I noticed the reviews of this recipe run the gamut from its having too much flavor to not enough - I guess it depends not only on your taste buds but the herbs you use and how fresh they are (if they are on the brownish side definitely toss 'em!). I found it perfect with subtle understated well-balanced flavors. I used the French bread setting and got the sturdy well-developed texture and crackly crust I wanted. I also reduced the sugar to 1 T. since I don't like much sweetness in my breads and to ensure it didn't over rise (which it still did a little bit so next time I'll use even less or none at all). Don't be put off by the title which could lead you to think this is a boldly flavored GARLIC-y bread. It's not. Sure hope this recipe sees more activity because it really is terrific. Read More

We just did not like the taste of this bread. For how many ingredients were used we did not think that it had a lot of flavor. Sorry Read More

This bread is out of this world. However the recipe doesn't tell how to cook if using the bread machine on the Dough Setting and baking in the oven. Temperature? Length? Time to rise before baking? I use my best cooking knowledge and seemed to do okay. Read More

Good but a little to herby tasting. I will leave out some of the other herbs next time and add a little more garlic. Good texture. Read More

I made and baked this bread in my bread machine. It fell a little. It tasted great though and went great with the homemade lasagne we had for dinner. Read More

I found this recipe years ago on this site. I added a touch of crushed garlic to the recipe and it is now a tradition to make this for my family on Thanksgiving! Read More

This was a snap to assemble. I used my Kitchen Aid mixer from beginning to end as I'm not one that has a bread maker. I proofed the yeast in my Kitchen Aid mixer bowl with the sugar and water for ten minutes to get the yeast to "bloom" then I added the vegetable oil and the rest of the dry ingredients. I did add in 3 tablespoons of Kraft parmesan cheese and I used garlic powder instead of garlic salt. I had to add one more tbsp. of flour to get the bread to jump on the bread hook but it didn't need much more flour than that. I kneaded it with the bread hook for about five minutes then set it to rise in a lightly covered greased bowl on my warm heating pad for an hour. After it doubled I formed the dough into rolls and plopped them into greased muffin tins. I got ten large rolls out of one recipe. I again covered it lightly and set it to rise on my heating pad again. 350 for 17 minutes was just right. When the rolls came out of the oven I brushed just a touch of oil over the top for a nice bakery sheen. The flavor of these rolls is almost "ranch" like and the texture of these rolls was very soft and fluffy. (It's funny that it did turn out almost light in texture when the dough itself was so heavy feeling.) Next time I might try using dry buttermilk powder and see if I can't get more of a buttermilk ranch flavor. As it is this was a very good bread recipe. This will be very good with our spaghetti dinner. Read More
