I posted this recipe several years ago and it is still one of my go-to bread recipes. We love this bread with any pasta dish, we love to dip it in balsamic vinegar and olive oil or slice it up for garlic toast. It’s a great recipe to use the flour in your food storage, as well as the olive oil, salt, spices and yeast (keep your yeast in the freezer to help it last longer). This bread is even better than the one they serve at Macaroni Grill and super simple to make, you’re going to love it! If you want a no-fail, fluffy, soft, flavorful bread recipe, this is the one for you!

Instructions
  1. Add yeast, sugar and water in a mixing bowl. Let the yeast rise in bowl until bubbly. Add the oil, rosemary, salt and flour and knead together until smooth and slightly sticky. This usually takes 10 minutes on medium speed. Roll dough into two large round loaves, or four small loaves. Place the round loaves of dough on a greased cookie sheet. Let the bread rise until they double in size, about 30-40 minutes. Bake at 400 for 15-20 minutes, or until top is golden brown. Melt butter and spread over the baked loaves and sprinkle with coarse salt.
