A great savory (and very easy) bread.
I found this recipe in "The Best of Country Breads" (published 2000).
I've adapted the seasonings to my liking. You could change the seasonings and amounts to your liking. My father and soon-to-be husband absolutely love this bread; a loaf lasts less than a day when they are around!
