I enjoy making various herb breads -- but this is my all time favorite. I've seen other similar recipes -- but this is the easiest one to make -- and is just fabulous. It goes well with so many different dishes -- but I can eat it anytime - anywhere!!! When taking meals to friends who are recovering from an illness, surgery, etc. -- this bread is always in the basket.

My grandmother made this bread in the 60's and 70's. It was A pillsbury Bake Off Prize Winner in 1960. Absolutely easy and delicious. I'm serving it tonight with Salmon and a green salad.
