Ingredients

1 tablespoon white sugar
1 cup warm water
1 (.25 ounce) package active dry yeast
1 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons butter, softened
2 tablespoons rosemary
1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
3 cups bread flour
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 egg, beaten (optional)


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.


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.


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.


Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).


Brush loaves with egg. Bake 15 to 20 minutes in the preheated oven, or until golden brown.

Notes

There is nothing like the smell of baking bread filling your home. This bread smells as good as it tastes, too. Rather than mix the ingredients in the order given, I often use my food processor - pulsing dry ingredients first, then pouring the liquid through the shoot while mixing.

I made 3 batches of this bread over the weekend. It tastes as good as it smells. I think it's going to be a new family favorite.
