Prep Time: 10 minutes
Bread Machine: 2 hours
Total Time: 2 hours, 10 minutes
Yield: 1 Loaf
- 1 cup warm water
- 1 beaten egg
- 1 tsp salt
- 2 tbsp sugar
- 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
- 2 tsp dried rosemary, or use 2 tablespoons fresh, crumbled
- 1 tsp each dried oregano and basil (or 1 tbsp each fresh)
- 3 cups all-purpose flour
- 2 tsp bread machine yeast
Place in machine according to machine instructions (or if you make bread by hand, you already know what to do).
Bake on large loaf, light crust.
A few minutes into kneading, check that the dough is the consistency that you want, add any flour or extra water that you need (I usually find I need a little bit of flour).
This herb combination smells heavenly, and goes great with chicken or pasta or on picnics. You can use any combination of herbs you like, and adjust it to complement the meal you are serving if you like.
Another favorite combination for us is dill and onion bread. Just omit the herbs in the recipe above and add 1/4 c finely chopped onion and 1 tbsp dried dill leaf (or three tbsp fresh).
