This was a great comfort bread! I made with a large pot of chili and had my family over - they loved it! I added herbs de provence and it turned out fantastic. I will make this again and again. Thanks.

Unfortunately, the most important piece of information is in the recipe description and not in the recipe itself -- you must use only 2 loaves of frozen bread dough, not 1 3-lb. package as the recipe states. My bread not only outgrew a 9x9 pan, but a 9x13 pan as well and was not done in the specified time since there was an extra loaf of bread in the pan.

This bread is really good, but I think it'd be even better with additional cheese sprinkled generously over the top!

This had good flavor, but needed much more cooking time than is alloted. Mine was still doughy when the timer went off. Next time I would decrease the oil, too...it could have done with less.

I made a half recipe to go with Beef Stew, and subbed a tsp. of minced garlic for the onion. While it was good, I don't think it was great. There seemed to be a lot of oil left bubbling up in between the risen bread in the pan, making the bottom of the bread rather soggy. I don't think I'll make it again.

This bread was a hit with my family although the recipe was not clear on preperation. Also,it came out raw in the center, but once it was cooked, it was really delicious. I might try the bacon next time .

My boyfriend thought it went really well with lasagna. It looks pretty in the pan... unusual. I didn't have any onions on hand, but it tasted fine. I'll add the bacon next time, if I remember!
