Herb Casserole Bread Recipe

Fresh baked bread tastes wonderful when you are out on a chilly campout. This is a casserole bread which is pretty easy to make.

This casserole bread recipe calls to mix the dough in a bag. You can do it in a bowl if you prefer, but the Scouts might enjoy squishing it around in the bag. This is a sticky dough, so try to get as much as possible out of the bag when you are ready to put it in the Dutch oven.

If you want to make this recipe at home in the comfort of your kitchen, just use a 350 degree oven.
