I take part in Meal Plan Monday, over at the OrgJunkie. I love reading what everyone makes and this recipe has been on Laura's menu a few times and it caught my eye. I am a bread junkie. I really truly am. I LOVE bread! I love the smell when it's baking, I love the golden crust, pillowy soft inside and love to slather it with butter. Mmmmmm....
OK, I'm having a Homer Simpson moment.... sorry about that!
The title of this recipe is what caught my attention. How could you make garlic bread, in the bread machine. I quickly found out that it wasn't your average garlic bread, it was garlic flavoured bread. This is probably the 3rd time I make this bread. The kids love it (they have inherited my love for bread) and it really is perfect with just about anything. A big bowl of pasta, a soup, stew.... the possibilities are endless. The bread doesn't rise much, which makes you worry that it will be dense and tough, but it bakes up nice, light and fluffy.
