This is the first bread I've ever made and it was so so so easy and so so so good! I'm shocked that I can make bread! I opted to use the roasted garlic bulbs and doubled what you suggested (1 bulb per loaf) since I'm a garlic lover. Instead of mixing it in the dough i laid it on after rolling it out flat before shaping the loaves so that the bulbs retained their shape. Served it spread with pesto. yum yum yum!

Easy and flexible. I converted it to a garlic bread. I didn't use the refrigerator nor did I knead the dough that long.

This is fabulous! At the suggestion of another reviewer, I baked mine in a circular springform pan, and got a perfectly round loaf that looked gorgeous. Thanks so much.

Excellent. The next time I will roll it out a little smaller so it turns out more like a loaf of bread to slice for sandwiches. It was still good the next day.

Outstanding. My husband wanted fresh bread with my vodka sauce tonight and I was outside of the window on time in regard to having my bread maker make it. I went in search of a quick bread recipe and decided to try this with quick rising yeast. WONDERFUL! I only let this sit in the fridge for 25 minutes. Followed everything else as stated and it was AWESOME!! Way better than any bread machine recipe. Will definitely make again.

I'm terrible with breads but this worked very well for me. I cut the recipe in half to make 1 loaf, using about 2 1/4 cups of flour before it wouldn't take any more. Very easy with great results. Made some great garlic bread!

Absolutely loved this recipe. It was a big hit with my family. I took one roll and split it and made garlic bread with butter, fresh minced garlic, grated parmesan cheese and oregano. with a lot of picky people in my house this recipe is a keeper. Thanks for sharing.

No flash needed for my picture because a beam of light was shining down from the heavens, illuminating my masterpiece. Made for Soups and Breads Recipe Tag.

This is pretty good. It's the closest I've gotten to making Italian Bread similar to the bakery. And I've tried quite a few times with different recipes. I'll admit, I cheated and had my breadmaker mix the dough, then shaped & put in fridge before baking. Not too dense and nice crusty outside. It was so hard, I thought I'd overbaked it until I sliced into it. So don't be discouraged like I was when I first took it out of the oven. Also halved recipe and made into 2 small rounds, so might cut baking time by 5 minutes next time. Will try this one again. Thanks!
