Rosemary-Garlic Focaccia Bread

This bread smells wonderful when it’s baking in the oven. I make it mostly during the summer when rosemary is abundant in the garden, but also around the holidays when rosemary plants are available in the stores. —Tammy Bollman, Minatare, Nebraska

    We've made this bread multiple times and rarely have leftover to do anything with. I can make a meal of it!

    This was a delicious bread! My husband and I used the leftovers to make sandwiches with leftover herb-roasted chicken. The bread may require less salt sprinkled on top of the bread prior to baking.
