BK I really enjoyed the flavor and the SMELL of this bread. I made a loaf of bread and 6 hoagie rolls. We used the rolls last night for italian sausage and onion sandwiches for family dinner. OH YEA! I also used my bread machine to mix the dough, then free shaped the rolls and the bread boule. Cooked these on my stone. I did get a pic of the rolls but the bread was gone in a split. I used sage freshly ground from my kitchen plant and like it's sister herbs, fresh ground herbs made the house tantilize. Will make these often.MAde for AUs/NZ Swap 38

Excellent recipe BK. I have to tell you that I used the bread machine to do the mixing and kneading and the dough turned out beautifully. I got six big sandwich buns from it and I can't wait to make a chicken sandwich on one. As a plus they smell wonderful while baking :D.
