And after I tasted it, I decided there was no way I could freeze it. Joe, Andrew and I ate almost the entire loaf with our dinner that night. It was that good.
I think I've mentioned here before that I have a Great and Terrible Fear of yeast breads. One of these days I'll suck it up and give yeast a shot, but for the time being, I'm relegated to the world of quick breads. I've found many delicious recipes, but they're all sweet, so it was nice to come across a savory one. I'll be making this bread a lot in the future. It is absolutely delicious.
