1 1/2TablespoonsItalian Herb Seasoning
1 1/2Teaspoons Salt
1 1/2TeaspoonsBread Machine Yeast
Bread Machine settings – 1.5 or 2 pound loaf, light color and “basic” bread setting
Make sure the bread machine is unplugged and remove the bread pan from the bread machine.
Pour the milk into the bread pan and then add the other ingredients (including the Italian herb seasoning). Place the bread machine yeast in last and the yeast should not touch the liquid (until the bread machine is turned on and the ingredients start to be mixed together).
Place the bread pan back in the bread machine and plug in the bread machine.
Enter the correct settings into your bread machine (i.e. 1.5 or 2 lb, light color & basic setting) and press the "start" button.
After the bread machine has finished baking the bread, unplug the bread machine. Remove the bread from the bread pan and place it on a cooling rack. Use oven mitts when removing the bread pan from the bread machine as it will be very hot!
In our Sunbeam bread machine, the baking takes about 3 hours for a 2 pound bread (and 2:53 hours for a 1.5 lb bread loaf) at the light color & basic bread settings. However, some machines can differ and you don’t want to be away from home when the bread machine “finished” alarm goes off! Your bread machine should show you the length of the baking time after you have entered the settings into the machine. This will allow you to know when to be in the kitchen in order to remove the bread.
