Macaroni Grill Rosemary Bread

I have only been to Macaroni Grill once and it was awhile ago.  I remember that I LOVED their bread!  When my sister told me about this recipe, I knew I wanted to try it!

 She got the recipe here, from Creations by Kara.  The recipe says to bake at 450 for 20 minutes.  The first time I made this bread....I cooked it for the full 20 minutes and the bread was very dark!  I baked the bread in the picture above for probably 13 or 14 minutes.  I would definitely watch it after ~10 minutes and take it out when it is a nice golden brown.

Not sure why mine fell in the middle...didn't happen the first two times I made it.  Must have been to rough with it when I put it in the oven....oops...still delicious!

Macaroni Grill Rosemary Bread

1 Tbsp SAF yeast
1 Tbsp sugar
1 cup warm water
2 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp salt
1 Tbsp olive oil
1 1/2 tsp dried rosemary (or 1 Tbsp fresh)
Topping:2 Tbsp butter or margarine, melted
1 1/2 tsp dried rosemary (or 1 Tbsp fresh)
Coarse salt

Directions:  Mix yeast, sugar, and water till frothy. Add 2 cups of the flour, salt, oil and rosemary and mix till smooth. Add enough flour to make a soft dough. Form into a round loaf and place on a lightly greased pan. (I used my pizza stone, so I didn't grease it, just dusted with a little cornmeal.) Brush the loaf with butter using a pastry brush. It will be really wet. Sprinkle with rosemary and coarse salt. Let rise till doubled, about 45 minutes. Bake in a 450 oven for about 15-20 minutes. Serve with balsamic vinegar and olive oil if desired.
Pin It!
