Herbed Parmesan Bread
This bread is mouth-watering, really! There is no other way to describe it. The mix of herbs, cheese, and garlic result to a really savory bread that you can eat on its own. If you have fresh herbs, great! If you don’t, then just substitute the fresh rosemary and basil for dried ones. For the more adventurous ones, go ahead and experiment with your favorite herbs and cheeses!
This is what goes into the bread:
Here are some tips to get you started!
- Use lukewarm water to activate the yeast. That’s warm to the touch when you stick your finger in the water, but something you can tolerate.
- No fresh herbs? It can be difficult to find fresh herbs sometimes, so feel free to use a substitution ratio of 1 Tablespoon Fresh Herbs to 1 Teaspoon Dried Herbs.
- What to serve your Herbed Parmesan Bread with? You can never go wrong with butter! Toast the bread and serve with some balsamic vinegar and olive oil. It will also work wonderfully for a grilled cheese sandwich!
