I love bread. I love bread. I love bread. So when I’m asked to bring bread to a gathering, it makes me very happy. Jurga assigned this Rosemary Asiago Bread to me for her Breakfast for Dinner Gr8 Dinner and I was excited to try the recipe, because it starts with frozen bread dough!
If you are making this bread for breakfast or brunch, the second rise can be done in a cold oven overnight. Then just remove it from the oven in the morning, heat the oven and pop it back in! You will have warm, soft bread to go with your breakfast or brunch. The oils from the rosemary heat up and release a calming fragrance throughout your home. As your guests arrive or your family awakens, they are greeted with the yummy aroma of freshly baked bread with rosemary. Ahhhh….
For lunch or dinner, I have also included the instructions for a quicker rise.
You could also do this same rosemary and asiago treatment on Debbie’s Challah Bread recipe. That would almost be a complete breakfast because the Challah includes eggs!
