Need an easy but fabulous bread for Thanksgiving Garlic and Rosemary Skillet Bread

Need an easy but fabulous bread for Thanksgiving? Or heck, how about dinner tonight! This bread has tons of flavor from the fresh garlic and rosemary. Olive oil in a cast iron skillet gives it this unreal crust. You will love it!

Ingredients

  • 1 cup warm water (not hot! not cold! Test it with your fingers. Like a nice warm bath.)
  • 1 tablespoon white sugar
  • 1 scant tablespoon active dry yeast (or 1 package)
  • 3/4 teaspoon kosher or sea salt*
  • 1/4 cup olive oil (goes in the dough)
  • 2 and 1/4 cups all-purpose or bread flour, plus more as needed
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil (for bottom of skillet)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil (for top of bread)
  • 2 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
  • 2 sprigs fresh rosemary, chopped (or 1 teaspoon dried)
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher or sea salt*

Instructions

  1. In a large bowl or stand mixer, add warm water, sugar, and yeast. Stir together with a spoon, then set a timer for 5 minutes.
  2. If your mixture is bubbly and a bit foamy after 5 minutes, congratulations! You didn’t kill your yeast. If it’s not reacting, then start over.
  3. Add 3/4 teaspoon salt, 1/4 cup olive oil, and 2 and 1/4 cups flour. Stir together with a spoon until a soft dough forms. Then if you are using a stand mixer, switch to the dough hook and knead for 8-10 minutes. If you’re kneading by hand, turn onto a well-floured work surface and knead for 8-10 minutes. Add more flour as needed. I used an extra 1/4 cup. You want the dough to be workable but it is still pretty sticky. (See photos)
  4. Grease a large bowl. Scrape the dough into the bowl, form a ball, and turn to coat the top with oil. Cover with plastic wrap and let rise for 45 minutes. (Hang onto the plastic wrap for the second rise.)
  5. Coat a 10-inch cast iron skillet** with 1 tablespoon olive oil. Punch down the dough and press it into the bottom of the pan. Use a sharp knife to score the bread on top in a crisscross pattern.
  6. Brush the top with 1 tablespoon olive oil. Then sprinkle with garlic, rosemary, and 1/2 teaspoon salt.
  7. Cover loosely with plastic wrap and let rise another 20 minutes.
  8. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees F.
  9. When the bread has risen, bake at 400 for 20-25 minutes.
  10. Remove from the oven when the top is light golden brown all over.
  11. Remove the bread from the skillet right away and let cool on a wire rack. If you leave it in the pan the crust will get soggy!
  12. Drizzle with more olive oil, slice into wedges, and serve hot!
    Best Restaurants in America If you eat out in the U.S.A. and want the best dining experiences possible, this guide is for you What makes a good restaurant a “best”? Food that’s better than just good, of course. A dining room and a level of service that suit the quality of what’s on the plate. A good wine list (which doesn’t always mean an encyclopedic one), good beers and/or cocktails where appropriate. And then the less easily quantifiable stuff: personality, imagination (or intelligent commitment to a lack of same), consistency. 101 Best Restaurants in America (Gallery) When we were a young website, way back in 2011, we drew up our first 101 ranking ourselves, making a list of the places where we, The Daily Meal’s editors, liked to eat. Taking into consideration our mood, our budget, and where we happened to be when we get hungry, how would we vote, we asked ourselves — not only with our critical faculties but with our mouths and our wallets? Where would we send friends? Where would we want to dine if we had one night in this city or that? By this method, we ended up with a shortlist of 150 places. Then we argued, advocated, and cajoled each other on behalf of restaurants ranging from old-fashioned to avant-garde, ultra-casual to super-fancy. Finally, we invited an illustrious panel of judges (restaurant critics, food and lifestyle writers, and bloggers) from across America to help order restaurants via an anonymous survey and tallied results to assemble a ranked list. Upstairs, the simple Scandinavian-style dining room is kitted out with tables that look like tangled tree trunks, carved by Tom senior. The ingredient-led 12-course tasting menu is constantly changing (you might spot one of the chefs picking a final herb flourish outside minutes before it hits your plate). Starters could include a mouthful of smoked eel and apple, or an exploding dumpling of ox cheek and lovage. A crapaudine beetroot slow-cooked in beef fat is meaty in texture as well as flavour, and local lamb is paired with turnip and mint. Even the bread with sour butter is sensational. Afterwards you’ll be grateful for the walk through the village to a pretty rose-covered house where some of the nine bedrooms have antique oak four-posters and copper bateau baths. Wake to the sound of cows mooing in the next field and head back to the inn for a simple breakfast of sheep’s yogurt with fresh berry compote and house granola or toasted brioche heaped with mushrooms and a duck egg. Unsurprisingly, the most talked about restaurant in Yorkshire is often full, so book it quick. By Tabitha Joyce.
