Bread Machine Baking: Herbed Green Onion Bread

You may realize by now that my bread machine gets quite a workout. I love it as the perfect proof box for dough, the space-saving, less mess, do the work while I putter elsewhere gadget that works beautifully with little to no attention from me. It is truly an underrated kitchen appliance that is collecting dust in many thrift stores and grandma’s kitchens everywhere.

I buy my machines from thrift stores only, and in the MANY years I have been using a bread machine, I am only on my second unit. There is so little movement to go wrong; the little paddle at the bottom of the pan is the only moveable part, that they are truly a workhorse with a lot of life in them.

I am currently working on a new book filled with bread machine recipes, and who better to try them out, than YOU! This Herbed Green Onion Bread recipe is delicious and filled with all the fresh(or dried) herbs that you love. With a base dough seasoned with green onion, you will want to add this recipe to your dinner menu. I like to bake this right in the machine, or use the dough cycle and make it into breadsticks or rolls. Enjoy!

Herbed Green Onion Bread

  • 3/4 cup thin sliced green onion (chives work beautifully)
  • 3/4 tsp dried Basil or 2 1/4 tsp fresh minced Basil
  • 1/4 tsp dried Thyme or 2 1/4 tsp fresh Thyme
  • 1/4 tsp dried, crushed Rosemary or 3/4 tsp fresh chopped Rosemary
  • 3 TBSP butter
  • 1 1/3 cup milk
  • 1 egg
  • 4 cups AP flour
  • 3 TBSP sugar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 1/4 tsp active dry yeast


In small skillet, melt butter on low and add green onion, basil, thyme, and rosemary. Heat until green onion is soft.

Cool slightly and add to the machine. Add the remaining ingredients according to the *manufacturer’s instructions and select basic white bread cycle.

*You will see this instruction in many bread machine recipes. It refers to the type of machine you have, some recommend dry ingredients first and some recommend adding wet ingredients first. All of my machines recommend wet ingredients first. If you are unsure, add wet first.
