This Rosemary Bread with fragrant roasted garlic makes for an incredible bite. Add just a pat of butter or extra virgin olive oil - it's all you need!
Oh my goodness, can we just talk about roasted garlic for a little while? Now, I'm a huge fan of garlic, period. Give me pasta with tons of garlic and fresh tomatoes, pizza with slices of fresh garlic scattered over the cheesy top or 40-clove chicken, I am all about it! But there's something about roasted garlic that just elevates that love to a whole new level.
That lovely garlic when roasted becomes wonderfully sweet yet still savory and fragrant. My favorite way to enjoy it is spread over a crusty slice of bread, so clearly, roasted garlic in bread is a great idea. It's like saving a step so I can savor it sooner.
Garlic and herbs are natural partners. I adore garlic with tomatoes and basil, so I paired them together in a pane bianco italian bread recipe recently for a bread that was sweet with roasted garlic, fragrant, and beyond flavorful.
Using roasted garlic in that bread inspired me to give roasted garlic a starring role in another bread recipe.
Here garlic is roasted with thyme, then baked into a tender loaf of bread filled with flecks of fragrant rosemary and a touch of parmesan.
Truth be told, that thyme roasted garlic is off the hook! Slather that on a piece of bread and I could eat it like a meal. When added to this bread it adds something special and wonderfully flavorful.
This Rosemary Roasted Garlic Bread is addictive all by itself but a simple pat of butter over a warm slice is pure heaven.
