Roasted Garlic and Rosemary Bread

– Roasted Garlic and Rosemary Bread –

There truly is nothing better than homemade bread, but so many of us don’t even attempt to try it, because it just seems to difficult. I have seen so many great homemade bread recipes, but they all require a bread maker, who in the heck has a bread maker? well I know alot of people do, but I don´t, and I know most of you don´t either. So, I slaved for hours and days trying to find a way to make bread making a bit easier for those of us that aren’t “bread making experts”, and after many attempts, I found the solution!! Of course regular homemade bread is great, but I decided to add some more flavor to it by adding some roasted garlic and rosemary. I present to you the worlds most easiest homemade bread recipe of roasted garlic and rosemary, and it’s done in under 60 minutes from start to finish!! No prior breadmaking experience required, no bread machines, nothing fancy, just some simple ingredients and all the basic tools you already have in your kitchen. Watch the video below on how to make this “fool proof” roasted garlic and rosemary bread in 60 minutes from start to finish, and enjoy the flavors of homemade bread! Salud!
