Make this with your bread machine, stand-type mixer, or by hand.

SKU: M13-1

Can I use this mix in my 1 pound capacity or 1.5 pound capacity bread machine?

We have designed our mixes specifically for 2 lb. capacity machines. However, you may still find success with 1.5 lb. capacity machines. You may expect to see the top of the loaf touch the lid of the machine towards the end of the baking cycle. This may lead to imperfect baking in that one spot on the loaf. The rest of the loaf should be fine. For 1 lb. bread machines, we recommend only running the bread on the dough cycle and then transfer the dough to a pan for baking in a conventional oven. See packaging for more info.

Why do the directions ask me to use a thermometer?

Yeast is very sensitive to heat and other environmental factors. We have tested and designed our mixes to find the sweet spot for yeast activity to get the best rise. Even just a few degrees off on water temperature can make a big impact on the quality of your bread. Measuring the temperature of your water accurately is the best way to ensure consistently successful bread baking.

I followed the directions exactly and I see had a problem with my bread? What can I do?

Sometimes bread issues happen. We are happy to help. Send us a picture of your bread and a picture of the back packaging of your bread mix to our customer support email at Include as much detail as possible about your baking process and bread machine model so we can troubleshoot the cause of the issue.

Should I adjust my mix for high altitudes?

We don't recommend making any changes to the mix for high altitudes. We have tested our mixes in a variety of locations and have fine tuned each mix to be the best product possible.

I don't have a bread machine or a stand-type mixer. Can I still make this bread in my oven?

  • Loaded with flavor from sun-dried tomatoes
  • Balanced with basil, other herbs, and spices
  • Makes fabulous sandwiches, a dipping bread, an accompaniment with Italian food


This is an exciting bread, not shy at all.  It's not hot, but it's loaded with flavors. It will make your life more exciting.

You can make fabulous sandwiches with it. It's bold enough that you can load it with meats, spices, peppers, and cheeses. It's a magical bread.

It's a great accompaniment to meals, especially continental food.  It's wonderful for dipping--either in a cheese sauce or olive oil.

This is the bread that you want to explore the wonderful world of savory French toast. With savory French toast, it's no longer for breakfast only but it makes wonderful brunches, lunches, and dinners.

Great with summer outdoor meals!

It is HOT here in Texas so sometime the evening meal is put off until very late. I used this delicious bread as a snack until it was time to eat. I served it with a pimento cheese spread and with my family of three adults, the who;e loaf was gone in minutes! great summer bread,
