Recipe: Garlic Rosemary French Bread

Recipe: Garlic Rosemary French Bread

Ingredients 1 ½ C. Warm Water 1 T. Fresh Rosemary, chopped (generous T.) 2. T. Oil 1- 1 ½ T. Garlic (I used the pre-chopped stuff- if yours is fresh you will want to use less) 2 T. Sugar 1 ½ tsp. Salt 4-5 C. White Flour 1 ½ T. Gluten Flour 1 T. Yeast Instructions Put on a large cookie sheet that has been greased/sprayed and has a layer of cornmeal. I form into a long skinny form and use a sharp knife to cut slits in the top like the stores do. This loaf will rise large. It should be about double its size on the pan when you put it in the oven. While it is rising I keep it covered with sprayed saran wrap. Before putting in the oven I beat 1 egg and use a basting brush to brush a layer over the top of the bread. Be gentle so it doesn’t fall. Bake at 350 for 27-30 minutes. For normal French/white bread just don’t add the rosemary and garlic.
