Rosemary Bread with Dipping Oil

Rosemary Bread 
 (2 Loaves)

Seriously, it doesn't get better then this :) This was a recipe I found about 4 years ago. It was originally called "Macaroni Grill" bread, but I don't think it really tastes like that... to be honest, this is better!
Don't bother slicing bread, just tear and enjoy :).
Below this recipe I will post the dipping oil we use with this bread. It was originally called "Jonny Carino's dipping oil" ... It is SO so delicious. You really are going to LOVE this recipe.

1 T Yeast
1 T sugar
1 c warm water
2 ½ c flour
1 t salt
2 T rosemary
2 T butter

Preheat oven to 375 degrees
Combine sugar water and yeast and allow mixture to bubble
Mix 1 T butter (melted or room temperature), salt and 2 c flour 
Add Rosemary
Continue to add the flour until it forms a ball and almost (but not completely) cleaning the bowl as it mixes.
Knead for about 10 minutes by hand, or in food processor about 3-5 minutes until smooth and elastic. ( I use my Kitchen Aid for this recipe, and have also made it by hand, either way works) 
Let dough rise in a warm place until doubled
Divide dough in half
Spray baking pan or cookie sheet with cooking spray.
Shape the dough into 2 small rounded loaves
Let loaves rise again until doubled
Bake until lightly browned (10-15 minutes)
Carefully remove from oven, brush with remaining butter. (I just do this step like pictured above :))

Dipping Oil
1 t. Rosemary
1 t Oregeno
1 t. Parsley
1/2 t Crushed red pepper flakes
1/2 t Black pepper
1/2 t Salt

Olive Oil
Crushed roasted garlic (optional)
2 t. Grated Parmesan cheese (optional)

Blend first 6 ingredients in a food processor. Store this mixture in tupperware or other container. When ready to use, crush roasted garlic (you can get this for really cheap at Costco in the spice and baking isle) into a shallow dish. Sprinkle desired amount of spice mixture then pour olive oil on top..... voila! So easy and SO delicious.
