Bread Machine Italian Herb Bread

I am not a baker. That’s why I have a bread machine. I’m lucky even still to get something that resembles a loaf of bread. And I’m really lucky (and happy) if I get a loaf that tastes as fantastic as this Italian herb bread. The aroma from this bread as it bakes is insane. If I could bottle it I would put it into air fresheners. Herbs are throughout the bread so there’s no chance you take a bite and don’t get all that deliciousness.

I wouldn’t change a thing about this bread machine Italian herb bread. Well, that’s sort of true. I sometimes sneak in a pinch or two or three of red pepper flake. Just enough for a bit of spiciness but not so much that the bread is ‘hot’. But trust me, the bread is fantastic just as it is.
