2 tablespoons basil
2 tablespoons parsley
2 tablespoons chives
1 clove garlic minced
2 3/4 to 3 1/4 cup flour

Roll up tightly from long end as for jelly roll; pinch seam and ends to seal. Taper ends. Place loaf, seam side down, on greased baking sheet. With sharp knife, make one lengthwise cut, 1/8-inch deep, to within 1 inch of ends. Cover. Place large, shallow pan on counter; half-fill with boiling water. Place baking sheet over pan; let rise 10 minutes.
Bake at 400F for 25 minutes or until done. Remove from sheet; cool on wire rack.
