"Fantastic with any Italian dish! I use fresh herbs from my garden when they are available. When using fresh herbs, double the given amount. The smell will make it impossible to wait. ENJOY!"

When a friend of mine who had lived in Italy for 2 years had a slice of this, he immediately asked for the recipe! Thanks for making me look skilled in the kitchen. I didn't have all the individual spices so I added 4 tsp Italian seasoning and 1/2 tsp garlic powder instead. I used olive oil in place of the butter for a more Italian flavor, added 5 Tbsp grated Parmesan instead of 3, and reduced the yeast to 2 tsp. ALSO, I noticed several comments about the bread falling. When using cheese in automatic bread machines, be sure that it is mild. Sharp cheese can cause the dough to rise too quickly and then collapse due to the enzymes that some sharp cheeses contain. Hope this helps!


This is a wonderful recipe for bread. I don't use a bread machine and was worried it wouldn't work. It turned out great! The only part of the recipe I changed a bit was the seasonings. I had to use what I could find at the grocery store. It's wonderful just to snack on. My toddler son even loved it! (making the bread the "old fashioned way" I used all purpose flour and set it in a greased bowl in a warm spot, left to rise for about 45 minutes, kneeded it for about 5 min. Then put them in greased (shortening) pan. (I used mini loaf pans) and let rise for about 30 minutes. It ony took about 20 minutes to bake. ( I kept checking)


Great bread recipe! My husband couldn't stop raving about it! I think he may have enjoyed it somewhat, since I made this recipe into 10 dinner rolls, and he ate five of them! Instead of butter, I used two tablespoons of garlic flavored olive oil. Left out marjoram and used fresh rosemary from the herb garden.Mmmm Good.
