Macaroni Grill Rosemary Bread Ingredients

  • 1 tbsp. yeast
  • 1 tbsp. sugar
  • 1 cup warm water
  • 2 ½ cups of bread flour
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 2 tbsp. fresh rosemary
  • 2 tbsp. butter[1]
  • 1/2 tsp. Italian seasoning[2]
  • 1 beaten egg (if desired)[3]
  • Extra-virgin olive oil

Rosemary Bread Recipe

  1. Place the yeast, sugar, and water into a large mixing bowl and let it sit for about five to seven minutes until bubbles form.
  2. Add 1 tablespoon of butter, 1 teaspoon of salt, and 2 1/2 cups of bread flour to the bowl and stir.
  3. Top the mixture with 1 tablespoon of finely chopped rosemary.
  4. Knead the mixture for roughly 10 minutes, until the dough is smooth and stretches well. Add extra flour to the dough if it is too sticky.
  5. Shape the dough into a ball.
  6. Rub a second large bowl with extra-virgin olive oil and set the dough in it.
  7. Cover the dough with a towel and place the bowl in a warm place to rise for at least one hour.
  8. Punch the dough down and split it in half, then let the dough rest for five minutes.
  9. Preheat an oven to 375 degrees.
  10. Line a cookie sheet with a piece of parchment paper.
  11. Form the two dough halves into loaf-shaped pieces and place them on the baking sheet.
  12. Lightly sprinkle both loaves with 1 tablespoon of rosemary.
  13. Return the cookie sheet to a warm, draft-free place and allow the loaves to rise for 30 minutes. For a firm glaze, brush the tops of the loaves with a beaten egg.[3]
  14. Place the cookie sheet in the oven and let the loaves bake for 15 to 10 minutes until the top of the bread is evenly browned and firm.[2]
  15. Take the bread out of the oven and brush both loaves with the remaining butter.[1]
