  1. Dissolve the sugar in warm water in a medium bowl, and mix in the yeast. When yeast is bubbly, mix in salt, butter, 1 tablespoon rosemary, and Italian seasoning. Mix in 2 cups flour. Gradually add remaining flour to form a workable dough, and knead 10 to 12 minutes.
  2. Coat the inside of a large bowl with olive oil. Place dough in bowl, cover, and allow to rise 1 hour in a warm location.
  3. Punch down dough, and divide in half. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Lightly grease paper. Shape dough into 2 round loaves, and place on the baking sheet. Sprinkle with remaining rosemary. Cover, and allow to rise 1 hour, or until doubled in size.
  4. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  5. Brush loaves with egg. Bake 15 to 20 minutes in the preheated oven, or until golden brown.

My husband LOVES rosemary so I had to give this a try. This was super easy to make, and a 5 star hit with my husband and the kids. The only problem I ran into is if you are going to do the egg w...

ABSOLUTELY INCREDIBLE!!! THIS IS A KEEPER!!! A nice crust with a beautiful crumb! I recommend only making one loaf form this recipe, though...and to avoid the soggyness on the bottom of the loaf...

This turned out great. It reminded me of the bread served at my favorite Italian restaurant. Definitely use fresh rosemary if you can, it makes all the difference.

This bread is fabulous! I used crushed rosemary and spread cornmeal on the bottom of the baking sheet. I didn't use any additional rosemary on top - it all went in the bread. I served it warm ...

I made this with dinner last night and it was delicious! I messed up and added the whole 2 Tbsp of rosemary to the bread mixture and it turned out beautifully regardless. I served it alongside...

I just took my two loaves out of the oven and can honestly say that this is a fabulous recipe. I used my bread machine set on the dough setting but didn't change anything else about the recipe....

This is the best bread I have ever made. It has become such a hit with the family and friends! And so easy to make too. My son is such a picky eater and he loves it. Had to give it a 5 star!

Help! My bread was hard as rock. I followed the directions but noticed that the bread didn't rise after I punch the dough and left in the baking pan. What did I do wrong?
