Rosemary-Parmesan Sourdough Bread

READY IN: 3hrs 20mins
Recipe by Galley Wench

While visiting my local Quiznos decided to try to make my own. Used a couple of my favorite Zaar recipes as the starting point. Made two loaves yesterday . . . friends stopped in and we devoured one loaf with cheese. It was deemed ready for the public! Next time may try adding a couple tablespoons of sun dried tomatoes.

Thank you for sharing this recipe. This bread is delicious. My first batch I didn't get as much spring as I like, so on second and third attempts, I warmed the milk, to which I added and proofed a teaspoon of yeast. This is a very quick, easy dough to work with. I don't use a mixer.
