The fresh herbs in this quick bread totally bring it to another level, but I bet dried herbs would work just fine in a pinch.

This stuff is fantastic fresh from the oven, but my favorite way to eat it is toasted (the cheese in the bread gets perfectly melty) and topped with a piece of lettuce and Creamy Egg Salad.

Thanks for the great recipe! I made it in a baking crock, and just used fresh herbs that I had in the garden- so it was rosemary, thyme, parsley, and basil. I think next time I'll add some chives. Thanks for sharing and I will definitely make again!
