    1. 1
      In a large mixing bowl, combine 1-1/2 cups flour, sugar, yeast, salt and herbs. In a saucepan, heat the milk, water and butter to 120*-130*F. Add to dry ingredients; beat just until moistened. Add egg; beat until smooth. Stir in just enough remaining flour to form a soft dough.
    2. 2
      Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 4-6 minutes. Cover and let rest for about 10 minutes.
    3. 3
      Divide dough into thirds. Shape each portion into a 15 inch rope. Place ropes on greased baking sheet and braid; pinch ends to seal and tuck under. Cover; let rise until doubled, about 20 minutes.
    4. 4
      Bake at 375*F. for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown. Brush with melted butter. Combine herbs; sprinkle over bread. Then remove from pan to a wire rack to cool.
    5. 5
      Yield: 1 loaf (16 slices).

      This is so good and SO EASY! I am a novice in the kitchen and I made this bread with no trouble! It was braided perfectly and I was so shocked that I made something that looked that good! Haha! Definately going to be using this again!!!

      I did the bread in the bread machine and then I braided it... I used 1/2 tsp of each herb like someone suggested. I didn't use sage cause I didn't find it. I used only 4 cups of flour. After 20 minutes of cooking, the bread was ready and with a beautiful golden color. Thanks Sharon. Made for Zaar Star Game.

      This is a wonderful bread! I prepared all of it in our Kitchenaid and it came out beautifully! While I was making the dough I couldn't figure out why I didn't need to add more than 3 1/2 cups of flour. While it was baking, I finally realized that I forgot to add the egg! (DOH!) It still came out great! This bread goes absolutely wonderful with spaghetti. Thanks for sharing. ~Buddha
