This is my most frequently asked for bread. This also comes from the Book Bread Machine Magic. Feel free to change the herbs around a little, I always add more rosemary because I love it, and I have a pot growing outside

    Put all bread ingredients in bread pan in the order given. Cut butter into 4 chunks and deposit in each corner.

    Turn bread machine on, and it will beep when dough is complete, my bread machine this is exactly one hour.
  • 3
    Turn dough on a floured surface. Gently roll and stretch dough into a 24 inch rope.

    In a small bowl combine the melted butter, garlic, and herbs.
