This recipe comes from a Nitty Gritty cookbook, The Bread Machine Cookbook. I adapted it for my bread machine. It's a favorite to take to potlucks and holiday dinners (what's better than fresh-out-of-the-oven bread?) My bread machine has a timer feature, which is nice, because I can set it several hours ahead of time, then the ingredients are room temperature when it's time. **Note -- I don't bother to cut an egg in half.
