Caprese Garden Bread

Caprese Garden Bread at Miz Helen's Country Cottage
At the end of our summer garden season we usually have a great harvest of herbs and other vegetables. I like to find recipes that I can use as much of that harvest as possible. My Caprese Garden Bread is just that recipe, just packed with garden goodness. This is a very easy to put together and in no time can be on your table. This is one of our favorite garden to table recipes.
How To Make Caprese Garden Bread

I start this recipe with my Oven Dried Tomatoes
The dried tomatoes are so flavorful and chopped fine to blend in with the other ingredients in the bread.
