Bread Machine: Garlic Herb Bread

The  aroma of garlic and fresh herbs as this bread is baking  gets the taste buds going. The taste is not disappointing.   It has a mild, yet satisfying flavor, not too dense of a texture, and a slightly chewy crust.
If you are looking for a bread that is easy to assemble and goes great with  everything from soup to making a sandwich, you need to try this bread.  It is also great for making croutons and stuffing for your turkey.
