A nice beer bread. I used leftover olives from Recipe #305489, so they had already marinated in garlic and oregano which made for a great addition. I also added about a tsp of dried minced onion, but it was undetectable in the final product. Hubby really liked this and went back for seconds! We dipped it in high quality olive oil with black pepper. Made for PHOTO TAG.

Wonderful! I loved this variation on the standard beer bread recipe. I love the simplicity of beer bread, but most recipes are just too sweet. This bread is savory and delicious. This bread will be made often in my house!
