Macaroni Grill's Rosemary bread!

Have you ever ate at Romano's Macaroni Grill?? If you have, you know what I am talking about when I say 'I saw it and had to make it"!
I was surfing cooking blogs and came across this copycat recipe and I knew I had all the ingredients, I even got to use a twig of rosemary off my herb plant! Whoo-hoo!

Here is the place I got the recipe, thank you so much for posting this recipe Jen!
Jen's Blog

Ingredients:
 1 Tbs. active quick yeast
1 Tbs. sugar
1 cup warm water
2 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp salt
1 Tbsp olive oil
1 1/2 tsp dried rosemary

Topping:
2 Tbsp butter or margarine, melted
1 1/2 tsp dried rosemary
Coarse salt

Mix yeast, sugar, and water in a mixer till frothy. Add 2 cups of the flour, salt, oil and rosemary and mix till smooth (approximately 3-5 minutes). Add enough flour to make a soft dough. Form into a round loaf and place on a lightly greased pan. Brush the loaf with butter using a pastry brush. Sprinkle with rosemary and coarse salt. Let rise till doubled, about 45 minutes. Bake in a 450 oven for about 20-25 minutes
Here are my results, I made two small loaves instead of one large.
The way to eat the bread is to slice it and dip in Balsamic vinegar and olive oil with some cracked pepper! This bread was amazing, just like MG's!!!
