Directions

  • Prep

  • Cook

  • Ready In

  1. In large bowl, combine 1 1/2 cups flour, sugar, undissolved yeast, salt, and herbs.
  2. Heat milk, water, and 1/4 cup butter until very warm (120-130 degrees F); stir into dry ingredients. Stir in egg and enough remaining flour to make soft dough.
  3. Knead on lightly floured surface until smooth and elastic, about 4-6 minutes. Cover; let rest on floured surface 10 minutes.
  4. Divide dough into 3 equal pieces. Roll each piece to 30 inch rope. Braid ropes; pinch ends to seal. Tie knot in center of braid; wrap ends around knot, in opposite directions, and tuck under to make round loaf. Place on greased baking sheet. Cover; let rise in warm, draft-free place until doubles in size, about 20 to 40 minutes.
  5. Bake at 375 degrees F (190 degrees C) for about 30 to 35 minutes or until done, covering with foil during last 10 minutes of baking to prevent excess browning. Melt remaining butter; brush over loaf. Sprinkle with additional herbs, if desired. Remove from sheet; let cool on wire rack.

Fabulous recipe. The second time I used fresh herbs (rosemary, basil, and oregano) and sprinkled the top with a bit of chopped rosemary near the end. Disappeared in a flash.

This bread was pretty tasty, but I was sort of disappointed because I was expecting something spectacular. I put in 1 1/2 times the herbs and some parmesan cheese, but the flavor was still pret...

Fabulous recipe. The second time I used fresh herbs (rosemary, basil, and oregano) and sprinkled the top with a bit of chopped rosemary near the end. Disappeared in a flash.

This was good and easy. I will make this again and change the herb combo and add garlic and parmesan cheese. yummy!

I have tried to make home made bread in the past and every time it came out terrible. This is a very easy recipe and the bread came out perfect! I listened to other reviewers and increased the...

rather tasty, and quite simple. i would add 1/8-1/4 teaspoon of additional spices to the melted butter and brush over the cooked bread, well, maybe some finely grated parmesean also.

This was yummy! I made one loaf, and forgot to cover it with aluminum foil. Since I was making it for a bridal tea, and it was a little too brown, my husband and I ate it...all of it. So good...

I've made this recipe many times and it's delicious. My family always request that I make this bread for every Thanksgiving dinner because it goes so well with it, or any dinner for that matter...

Great bread. I added extra spices and shredded cheddar cheese. Will make this again and again.

Tasty, chewy, satisfying bread. Perfect companion to soup. The herb flavor was mild but not too mild. I made the recipe as it was written, using my Kitchenaid stand mixer. The dry ingredient...

Yum Loved it so easy to make and quick I also tried using fresh herbs that was almost better thank you for posting this recipe
