This bread is delicious! The only things I did differently were brushing olive oil on the top when it came out and dusting it with parsley flakes. I will make this one again.
The bread was delicious, the only change I made was substituting ham for the bacon because I was out and had the ham on hand it was delicious, will use bacon next.
