French Countryside Bread (bread machine recipe)

Melissa Etheridge


Each week I make at least one loaf of homemade bread. I use this loaf to accompany dinner each night during the week~or until it runs out. If any is left over by the next weekend, I make croutons out of it. This loaf has a crusty top and a soft inside.
