Cooking time includes time for all risings. This makes an excellent bread to make stuffing for your Thanksgiving turkey. Or just eat plain with butter.

My family really loves this bread, I add dill rosemary and thyme when I make it. I use it for stuffing and I make an extra loaf since everyone seems to love it warm with butter. It also goes very well with soup
