Herb Bread
Here is the herb bread recipe from Liz (this is for a bread machine)
• 1 c warm water
• 1 beaten egg
• 1 tsp salt
• 2 tbsp sugar
• 2 tbsp olive or coconut oil
• 2 tsp dried rosemary (or 2 tbsp fresh)
• 1 tsp each dried oregano and basil (or 1 tbsp each fresh)
• 3 c flour
• 2 tsp bread machine yeast
Place in machine according to machine instructions (or if you make bread by hand, you already know what to do). A few minutes into kneading, check that the dough is the consistency that you want, add any flour or extra water that you need (I usually find I need a little bit of flour). Bake on large loaf, light crust. This herb combination smells heavenly, and goes great with chicken or pasta or on picnics. You can use any combination of herbs you like, and adjust it to complement the meal you are serving if you like.
Another favorite combination is dill and onion bread. Change the herbs in the recipe above to 1/4 c finely chopped onion and 1 tbsp dried dill leaf (or three tbsp fresh).

You can use this recipe to make bread dough by hand as well. Mix wet
ingredients and yeast as listed above, then add dry ingredients and knead
dough on a floured surface. Let rise in a covered bowl which has been
placed in a warm area, until dough has doubled (30 – 45 minutes). Punch
down dough, and shape into a loaf, then place dough into a greased loaf pan.
Cover and let rise in a warm area for 30 – 45 minutes until dough has
doubled. Bake at 350 degrees F for 30 – 40 minutes, or until loaf sounds
hollow when tapped.

You can also cook fresh bread dough as scones, by frying in hot oil, or you
can bake rolls made with bread dough, on the upper rack of your gas or
charcoal barbecue grill.

Add any kind of herbs you prefer.
