This is really great bread. I always put in more peppers and ended up leaving out the nutmeg which is simply a matter of personal preference. The bread itself is very easy and give reliable results. Adding the other ingredients changes plain-old-bread into something really good. We serve this as an appetizer at parties. Thanks, DG, for posting it!
