How to Make Herb Bread

by African Frames

A perfect savory loaf that does not disappoint! Plus use the extra dough to bake another loaf for the next day.


Step 1

Use a dough of your choice or use this recipe-How to Make Rolls- You can use purchased frozen bread dough or a biscuit dough. Roll into an oval.

Step 2

Dice some of your favorite herbs and aromatics. I've chosen scallions/green onions, thyme, and red onions.

Step 3

Sauté with 1-2 teaspoons of olive oil or to taste. Do not use too much oil, it will saturate the dough. Sprinkle some chilis if you wish to add some heat. Spread the mixture in the middle of dough.

Step 4

Cut the dough on an angle from the outside of the mixture leaving middle intact.

Step 5

Fold left and right over each other. Row by row.

Step 6

Cover the mixture completely.

Step 7

Remove extra dough. Press the dough firmly over the mixture so the edges are sealed. For a crispy bread, bake immediately. For a chewy bread, allow it to rise one more time before baking.

Step 8

Bake at 350 degrees for about 45 minutes.

Step 9

The extra dough can be rolled into a ball. Cut crosswise at the top and leave to rise. Bake at 350 for 30-45 minutes. 2 delicious loaves from 1 dough. Delish!!
