Looking for an alternative to garlic bread? Try this golden focaccia bread that's a big hit at our house. The dough is easy to whip up in the bread machine, then season with rosemary, garlic salt and Parmesan cheese. I serve it warm whenever we're having spaghetti or another Italian dish. -Kay King, Dyersville, Iowa

We love this recipe and use shredded asiago or parmesan cheese. It bakes nicely in a metal roasting pan.

We love this bread! It is so easy to make with the bread machine dough. One substitution I made is to use olive oil instead of butter in the dough. It works out just fine. Sometimes I substitute Italian seasoning or pizza spice for the rosemary. This bread is a huge favorite at our house with family and friends alike!
