Crispy on the outside and soft on the inside, this bread flecked with herbs, is an almost identical version to the bread served at the popular restaurant Ramano's Macoroni Grill. I came across the recipe after becoming addicted to their bread and craving it constantly (thanks to Google search and Cafe Michele). It's a great bread to tear and dip in flavored olive oils and to serve with your best Italian pasta dishes, or soups.
I am a fan of banana bread, but once I tasted this one, I will take it anytime over banana bread. I adapted this one from a recipe on bettycrocker.com, the smell of your house as it bakes is so amazing and inviting.
This is a Quick Bread, the cycle of your machine should clearly say QUICK BREAD, if it says anything else such as express, then this recipe will not work as what happened to one of the reviewers, as it does not contain yeast.
You don't need a lot of ingredients for this bread and it always turns out the same, which is why I love it. From The Bread Machine Cookbook by Donna German, who always gives amounts for small, medium and large machine. I'm posting the large recipe.
I could not believe how high this bread was - and it was an experiment too! Wonderful flavours of bacon & onion with just a smidge of mixed herbs. Just crisp up your bacon & fry your onion, and then it all goes in the breadmaker for a delectable bread! Just think - you can have an English Breakfast just by adding some scrambled eggs on top of a slice of this bread!
