Description

Here’s a delicious recipe for homemade French Bread to serve with any meal. Delicious with the dipping oil.

Ingredients

  • FOR THE BREAD:
  • 1 package (1/4 Oz. Packet) Active Dry Yeast
  • ¾ cups Warm Water (110-115ºF)
  • 1 cup Warm Milk (110-115ºF)
  • ⅓ cups Butter
  • ¼ cups Sugar
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • 4-½ cups Flour
  • FOR THE DIPPING SPICE:
  • 1 Tablespoon Minced Dried Onion
  • 1 Tablespoon Dried Rosemary
  • 1 Tablespoon Dried Oregano
  • 1 teaspoon Dried Parsley
  • 1 teaspoon Dried Basil
  • ½ teaspoons Red Pepper Flakes
  • ½ teaspoons Salt
  • ½ teaspoons Black Pepper
  • FOR THE DIPPING OIL:
  • ½ cups Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 2 teaspoons Dipping Spice
  • 2 Tablespoons Balsamic Vinegar

Preparation

In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. In a small saucepan, combine milk, butter, sugar, and salt. Heat until butter starts to melt (between 110-115ºF). Add to yeast mixture with 2 cups flour. Beat until smooth. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a firm dough. Knead on floured surface until smooth and elastic, about 4-6 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease the top. Cover and allow to rise for 50-60 minutes.

Punch dough down. Turn onto lightly floured surface. Divide dough in half. With rolling pin, shape each into a 10×12 rectangle. Roll up jelly roll style, pinching edges and ends to seal. Transfer to greased baking sheet, placing sealed edges down. With a sharp knife, slice 3-4 diagonal cuts in each. Allow to rise for 20-30 minutes. Bake in a 400ºF oven for 20 minutes, until crust is golden brown. Serve warm. Extra loaf may be frozen if desired.

In a small bowl, combine all the dipping spice ingredients. Store in an airtight container to use as needed.

For the dipping oil, combine olive oil, dipping spice, and balsamic vinegar in a small serving dish. Serve with warm French bread. Yum!
