Rustic Rosemary Bread

I made this rustic loaf of bread to go with dinner tonight and let me just say, it is A-MAZ-ING! If you've ever had the bread at Macaroni Grill, this is just as good. I am in bread heaven!

Rustic Rosemary Bread

In a bread machine, add:

1 TBSP yeast
1 TBSP sugar
1 cup warm water
2 cups flour + 1/2-1 cup more
1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon rosemary
1 tablespoon butter

Let the machine mix on the dough setting and gradually add in 1/2-1 cup more flour until a nice dough forms. It shouldn't be sticky or too stiff. When the dough cycle is finished, remove the dough and separate into two equal pieces. Shape each piece into a smooth circle. Drizzle a baking sheet with olive oil; place dough on baking sheet and sprinkle with more rosemary. Plop 1/2 TBSP butter on top of each loaf. Let rise in a warm place for 15-20 minutes. Fill a shallow baking dish with water and place in oven while baking. Bake at 375 degrees for 15-20 minutes until golden brown.

If you don't own a bread machine, you can also mix up the dough in your KitchenAid or by hand. Mix together the wet ingredients, then add in the flour and knead. Raise for 1 hour. Then follow the same directions as above from there.
