Olive Rosemary Rolls

Last week, I think I had mentioned that my Mister was going to try out a new bread recipe...and I was going to whip up some lemon hummus in my new Valentine's Day food processor!

While I have used my new kitchen toy for a few other meals in the last week...the lemon hummus wasn't actually something I got around to making! {The hummus was on sale in the store, so I was pretty stocked up}. However, we DID make the Olive + Rosemary Rolls...

We used the same Artisan Bread in 5 Minutes recipe whose praise I have been singing for some time now. It is unbelievably good...and easy...and consistent! We used the basic recipe + rolled the portion of dough out in a thin oval shape. Next, brush inside with E.V. Olive Oil, add olives + sprinkle with rosemary. Finally, we just rolled the dough up, cut it into pieces + allowed it to sit a little while. When it was baking time, we placed the little rolls on the "pizza stone" seperately, swirl side up {like mini cinnamon buns}.

These were just amazing! Bread is something fun that everyone can get involved in making, however these little beauties came out so exceptionally "professional looking", don't you agree that they would be perfect for serving or bringing to a dinner party?!

So I leave you with a couple of quotes:
“If thou tastest a crust of bread, thou tastest all the stars and all the heavens.” --Robert Browning. And even better... "Acorns were good until bread was found." --Francis Bacon
Happy Baking
