I received this recipe with my new bread machine ,I am not normally a fan of recipes that come with bread machines ,but this is one great recipe .This bread is soft ,and very flavorful ,yet strong enough to hold up under a sandwich with all the fixings ...I did find I some times find I have to add a little extra milk .Just watch the dough ball .
