This bread is easy and flavourful and bakes with a wonderful aroma.
Servings: 15 slices


  • 2 tbsp Butter - softened or margarine
  • 1/3 cup Onion - chopped
  • 3 /4 cup Milk - 80-90°F/26-32°C
  • 2 cups Bread flour
  • 1/2 tsp Dill - dried
  • 1/2 tsp Basil - dried
  • 1/2 tsp Rosemary - dried
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 1 tbsp Sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsp Quick dry yeast


  • In a small skillet, melt butter over low heat. Add onion and saute 8 to 10 minutes until onion is soft but not brown. Remove from heat; allow mixture to cool for 10 minutes before adding it to the bread pan.
  • Attach the kneading blade in the Bread Maker pan.
  • Place all ingredients (including onion mixture) into the bread pan following the recipe order (or following the order and method specified in the manual of your Bread Maker – mine is: FIRST, liquid ingredients; SECOND, dry ingredients; LAST, yeast). Note: With finger or a knife, make a small indentation in the middle of the flour. Add yeast to indentation, making sure it does not come into contact with the liquid ingredients.
  • Carefully insert bread pan into Bread Maker and gently close the lid.
  • Plug the power cord into a wall outlet. Select “Rapid/Quick” (about: 1:20-1:45h - This cycle varies from machine to machinbread setting. If available Choose crust color (I usually set Medium, but if you prefer set Light or Darand loaf size (2LB) and Press the Start button.
  • Open the lid and while using Oven Mitt, firmly grasp the bread pan handle and gently pull the pan straight up and out of the machine. CAUTION: The Bread Maker and pan may be very hot! Always handle with care.
  • Use non-stick Spatula to gently loosen the sides of the bread from the pan.
  • Turn bread pan upside down onto a Wire Cooling Rack or clean cooking surface and gently shake until bread falls out onto rack.
  • Cool for about 10-15 minutes before slicing.
  • To make perfect slices every time use a Bread Slicer with an electric knife.


You can add richer flavor to this herb bread if you add the dry herbs to the onion butter sauté instead of mixing them with the flour.
See if dried herb mix is enough for your palate. If not, increase it a bit. Go easy on the rosemary. You can try other of herbs in this recipe as well. Such as Herbes de Provence, lovage, savory and parsley.

It’s always a good idea to open the bread machine’s lid during the second kneading cycle (after about 10 minutes) and check the consistency of the doughball.
Dough is “just right” when it is smooth round ball in appearance, soft to the touch, leaves a slight residue on your finger, and the bottom of the bread pan is clean of dough residue.
  • If it’s too dry add lukewarm liquid a teaspoon at a time until it looks right.
  • If it looks too wet, add flour a tablespoon at a time until it looks right.
  • If there is flour in the sides of the pan, use a Silicone Spatula to wipe the flour from the pan.
Important: This can be done during the knead cycle only. DO NOT remove the pan, KEEP it locked in the machine. Do NOT turn off the bread maker to adjust dough.
