The bread is firm and tastes of rosemary. It smells amazing as it’s baking.
You can use dried rosemary and the bread will taste fine. However, if you have a rosemary plant I advise that you use fresh rosemary. The fresh herbs make a difference in the flavor.
It’s perfect for sandwiches. I’ve used it for ham sandwiches (and those were good), but rosemary bread is really great when paired with chicken or turkey.
The Man of the House also likes to have this for a snack. He toasts it and then slathers it with cream cheese. Yes, it’s as good as it sounds.
Rosemary Bread Machine Recipe
2/3 C. Milk
3 C. Bread Flour
2 ½ Tablespoon Sugar
1 ½ teaspoon Salt
1 ½ Tablespoon Butter or Olive Oil
1 teaspoon Chopped, Fresh Rosemary (or 1/4 teaspoon dried rosemary)
½ teaspoon Dried Thyme
½ teaspoon Dried Cilantro
2 teaspoons active dry yeast
This makes a two pound loaf.
In a large measuring cup or bowl mix the milk and the egg. Put in the dried spices to rehydrate them. Then follow the instructions that came with your bread machine in terms of which ingredients to put in the machine first. On my machine, I used the white bread and medium crust settings.
