I happened to use one of the bread machines I have that HATES sugar, so even reducing the sugar to 1 T. caused this to rise more than I would have liked. I don't care for sugar in my breads anyway, so I should have just left it out altogether. Unlike other reviewers I did not add oil, as the cheese (I used cheddar) contributes enough on its own. I used only half the amount of seasoning called for - I just used thyme, rosemary, basil and oregano. I loved the addition of the black pepper, which gave this a pleasant, spicy bite. For a browner, more crackly crust I chose to use the French Bread cycle. I was tempted to stick with the more traditional ratio of one cup liquid to three cups of flour and wish I had. I ended up having to add more flour, probably another few tablespoons. Other than a sticky, wet dough in the beginning and it rising too much for me, this was a lovely, fragrant, moist bread.
