Cheddar Cheese Herb Bread


This is a really easy bread to make with LOTS of flavor. There are already herbs in the bread machine package, but I’ve found adding extra enhances the taste.

1 pkg Hodgson Mills European Herb Bread Mix

1 t each dried oregano and rosemary




Taco-Cheddar Bread


Makes one 1½ pound loaf


1 cup plus 2T water

3 cups bread flour

¼ cup chopped fresh cilantro

1 cup shredded cheddar cheese

1 T dry taco seasoning mix

1 T sugar

¾ t salt

1½ t bread machine yeast


Select basic/white cycle using a medium or light cycle.  Do not use delay cycle. Cool on wire rack.






½ cup extra virgin olive oil

1/2 tablespoon minced garlic

1 tablespoon each fresh herbs: basil, oregano, rosemary, and thyme

Dash red pepper flakes, optional


Add more, or less, of any herb, to taste. Wonderful paired with balsamic vinegar

Pour olive oil into small saucepan.  Add garlic and herbs. Cook over low heat until garlic is golden. Pour into shallow bowl and surround with French, whole grain or Italian bread. Store leftovers in frig and use within a few days.


Conversion of dried herbs to fresh herbs:

Use 3 times the amount of fresh to dried.  Dried herbs are more concentrated, so you have to use more Fresh to get the same flavor.
