Rosemary-Garlic Focaccia Bread Recipe

“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
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 30 min. + rising Bake: 15 min. YIELD:12 servings


  • 3/4 cup warm fat-free milk (70° to 80°)

"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."
