The dinner roll! Nothing churns the appetite of diners quite like the bread presented before them as a signal to the beginning of dinner. Whether you’re about to tuck right into its doughy goodness or sworn it as your arch nemesis whilst on your low carb diet, the bread basket is always in the forefront of everyone’s thoughts. What probably started off as a stack of Wonderbread in the middle of Leave it to Beaver’s table (or if you’re fancy enough to go to a restaurant those little white oval pucks that were ever so fancy), the dinner bread has moved on up to fancier digs. From the classic French loaf to artisan boules filled with crunchy whole grain goodness. However what hasn’t changed much over the years has been the accompaniments served alongside the bread. Sure we may have gone from margarine to 84% European butter, or if you’re really fancy a good olive oil and balsamic. But the same old premise continue of tear, spread, bite.
My rosemary infused bread is an all-in-one don’t bother with pots of butter, extra plates, and butter knives solution. Albeit I am sure this is likely a centuries old Italian classic and I totally recognize my likely hypocritical statements. This bread is fast, easy, delicious, and different. Presenting a loaf of hot soft bread with the scent of rosemary wafting through the air and seeing sprigs of the fresh herb with golden olive oil and sparkling bits of sea salt really impresses. Then the diners tuck in by simply tearing off a slice of pre-seasoned heaven. How much simpler can it get?
You’ll need a nice loaf of Italian bread of your choosing…
Fresh rosemary, sea salt, and good olive oil
Make 1.5 inch slices along the entire loaf stopping just short of the bottom of the loaf so that the loaf remains intact. Between each slice drizzle olive oil, sprinkle some seas salt, and tuck in 1/2 sprig of rosemary. Bake at 325 fahrenheit for 15 minutes. Et voila!
