French Bread

This French Bread is SUPER easy and delicious! AND its low-fat! My family loves this recipe!

Sometimes, it is always good to visit the classic recipes.  French bread is one of my favorites. Plus this recipe is low in fat! :)  This is a family recipe that comes from my grandma’s cookbook and is one my whole family enjoys! It makes a great side dish all toasted up or, my personal favorite, a dip bread for a balsamic vinegar/olive oil/Parmesan cheese mixture.  Really you can’t go wrong with a classic recipe!  I hope you enjoy my family’s recipe as much as we do!
