Bread Machine Garlic Bread

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.

Oh this looks REALLY good!! Do you happen to have a good recipe for wheat bread for the bread machine? I'm trying to make my own bread for my boys lunches but the wheat bread is too dry. Thanks!

I just saw this on Bake with Bizzy and immediately added it to my "to bake" list. I love garlic and I love fresh bread.

My husband has celiac and hates garlic so this is a perfect time for me to make something, he can't eat. He won't care and I will be happy. Thanks for the recipe and for linking up.

Making this for the second time today since this is the ONLY bread my husband has requested I make.
He's picky and a tad hard to please so this is high praise indeed.
I have added some fresh minced garlic as I prefer a bold flavor and I have used Italian spice mix in place of parsley.
