OLIVE HERB BREAD

Hint

Once sliced, “if their are any left overs” place in a freezer bag and freeze until required.

Great toasted or simply dip into olive oil and enjoy.

You can't beat the smell of home made bread wafting through your house ! what's even better is cutting into pipping hot bread straight out of the oven !
