  • Combine the yeast, sugar and ¼ cup of water in a large bowl. Let stand for 5 minutes, until foamy.

  • In the same bowl, add 1 tablespoon of olive oil, 1 ½ tablespoons rosemary, fine salt, ¾ cups warm water and all the flour. Mix with large spoon until dough forms. Then work dough by hand on a lightly floured surface for about 5-7 minutes. Rub olive oil on the inside of a clean bowl and put the dough in, cover with saran wrap or a cloth and let stand for 1 hour. The dough should have doubled in size by this time.

  • Place a sheet of parchment paper on a baking sheet. Next, place the dough on a lightly floured surface and divide into 2 halves. Knead each piece for a minute or so, sprinkling with flour, as needed and work into a ball. Place each loaf on the prepared baking sheet. Let stand, uncovered, for about 1 hour or until dough has doubled.

  • Preheat oven to 400 F. Bake the loaves for 10 minutes. Remove them from the oven and brush with the remaining olive oil. Sprinkle with the kosher salt and pepper and crumble the remaining rosemary over top of the loaf. Return to the oven and bake for another 10-12 minutes, or until golden brown.

  • Let cool slightly and serve warm.


Serve with more olive oil, rosemary, salt, and pepper for dipping!

    Your Rosemary Bread is on my menu for next Friday, Whats For Dinner Next Week, can't wait to try it. Thanks so much for the awesome recipe!

  9. Kristy

    It is important that people understand that there are two separate raise periods for this bread - each lasting one hour. So, if you are reading the 1 hour 35 minutes as a total time (prep plus bake) you will be off by an hour.


    • Julie

      I noticed that too. They should really change that.


      • Jessica McCoy

        Thanks for the note. This has been updated!


  10. Lorenda Miller

    I'm catering a fancy formal dinner for 40. The hostess requested Rosemary Rolls. I tried this recipe using my bread machine. I make bread often for my family but never eat it myself. When these came out of the oven, I tried one and ended up eating 3! These are to die for! The only change to the recipe I made was I added a little fresh ground pepper. Trust me...these are delicious.


    • Jessica McCoy

      Love hearing about this! I hope your dinner was a success!


  11. Chris

    The site is broken... you can't actually see the ingredients or instructions!


  12. Carmel Nagle

    I've already made this Rosemary bread and it is wonderful! Just 2 questions: why is fine salt listed twice in the ingredients and ground pepper is in the ingredients but no mention when to add it?


    • Jessica McCoy

      Thanks for the note. I've edited the recipe to take out the duplicate salt and to add in where to add the ground pepper. Sound like you've had success making this recipe. Yum!


  13. Kristin

    I just made this recipe yesterday, and it came out wonderfully. My brother tried it and couldn't believe I had made it. I am proud, especially since this was my very first bread making experience. So glad I made this one, so delicious for dinner, or even for a breakfast sandwich.


    • Jessica McCoy

      Great job! That is always wonderful to hear success stories. 😉


  14. Deborah

    Have made this many times. Wonderful!


  15. Holly

    Novice Baker with a bread machine here.. what settings do you use for this bread on your bread machine??


  16. Charles

    Ok this is my first real adventure making bread and I have to say this was amazing. My only regret is that I have the other loaf to my neighbor but I'm definitely sharing this and making it again. Only thing I did differently was substitute barley malt for the sugar and used instant yeast.


    • Jessica McCoy

      That sounds delicious with your substitute. Note to self--make 4 loaves next time. 2 to share and 2 to eat. 😉 Enjoy!


  17. Candy

    This was amazing!


  18. YvonneZ

    I usually only cook for one. I love homemade bread but usually the loaves are so big. I like that these are small loaves. My question is can these be frozen? If so, what's the best way to bring them back to life?


    • Jessica McCoy

      Hi Yvonne,
      I'm sure the bread can be frozen, although I haven't done so myself. I imagine thawing it and then warming it by the slice for 10-15 seconds in the microwave might do the trick.

        Looks wonderful going to try it! We love this type of bread toasted it really brings out the rosemary flavor!


  19. Theresa

    This was easy and so delicious. I also added a
    Teaspoon of pepper with the rosemary and flour.
    This recipe is a keeper for sure!!!!


  20. Heather

    What would you change if you wanted to make the dough in a bread machine? Do you need to use different yeast? Or would you keep everything the same? Thanks! Really excited to try this recipe.


    • Jessica McCoy

      I have not made it in a bread machine, so I'm not sure. Let us know how it goes in the bread machine if you try it.


  21. Nancy Stapor

    Made this today. Easy and delicious

      This bread turned out amazing. So similar to Macaroni Grill’s! The whole family loved it!

    Copycat Macaroni Grill Rosemary Recipe (14)
    I love this recipe, the 1st time I made it I ate all of it by myself. Now I make this bread once a week 😉


    • Jessica McCoy

      I love to read comments like this! Thank you. 😉


  23. ParCha

    Is it okay to leave half of the dough in the fridge for a day if I dont want to bake both of them at the same time?


    • Jessica McCoy

      For sure!


  24. Jeni

    I'm a bread-making beginner.... followed the recipe and the loaves ended up very small. Not sure where it went wrong? Maybe I didn't let it rise long enough?


  25. Tim

    Copycat Macaroni Grill Rosemary Recipe (15)
    I used your recipe and baked the bread in a wood fired oven, it was fantastic! It’s an easy to follow recipe especially for a beginner bread baker!


  26. Amber

    Just made this and it’s DELICIOUS. Next time I’ll add some more salt and garlic for a little kick! I was able to use fresh rosemary from my garden! So good!


    • Jessica McCoy

      Thanks, glad you enjoyed it! We'd love for your to leave us a rating on the recipe.


  27. Sandy

    Does it matter if you use fresh rosemary instead?


  28. Terri Seastrom

    Delicious every time!!


  29. Cindy Johnson

    Easy easy if you use the dough hook on your Kitchen Aid mixer, it does all the work! I used fresh rosemary also and it was great. Making it now for a second time for company, my new favorite bread!


  30. Gene Stacy

    Made this bread tonight to accompany my shrimp scampi. Followed your instructions and it came out perfect. Nice and light, not dense. Will definitely add it to my many bread recipes. Thanks, Gene
