Sooo good! I've been making bread for years now and this is the quickest, best tasting bread you will find. Thank you!

good and easy to make. thick to mop up juices, but it did lack a little in flavor.

Very good! I added an extra tablespoon of oil to make it more soft, and brushing the top with some seasoned oil made it into both French loaves and dinner rolls.

Love this recipe! I used my KA for the kneading-other than that I stuck to the recipe, spraying the loaves twice with water, and for the second rise I let it go a little longer as I tend to make a dense loaf if I don't. Lovely crust with a great inside "chew". I used mine for garlic bread, another night I warmed some up to dip in extra virgin olive oil and pesto, and the other loaf I turned into french bread pizza! My husband said "you can make this anytime you want! Thanks for Posting!

This is a wonderful crusty bread! Just what I was looking for. I used my KA mixer with the dough hook to knead it. I brushed the loaves with an egg wash (1 egg and 1 Tbsp. water) before baking so they would come out a nice golden brown. My loaves spread out instead of up, but otherwise it turned out great.

Delicious as it Looks January 12, 2012

The loaves came out of the oven nicely browned after 20 mins. The crust my slightly crisp (I only sprayed it once) and the inside was soft and moist. I'll try it again, not sure how many times loaves should be moisted with water though.

This is a great recipe. I add 1 cup of rocatta cheese at the end of kneading. Not dry at all. If your bread is too dry cut back a little on the flour.
