Roasted Garlic & Rosemary Artisan Bread

Crusty, no-knead, artisan bread, flavored with fresh rosemary and buttery, roasted garlic!

Roasted Garlic & Rosemary Artisan Bread | Fabtastic EatsI finished 90% of my Christmas shopping this past weekend. Do you have any idea what an accomplishment that is for me? Considering last year, I did it all 2-3 days before Christmas. I’ve been a procrastinator pretty much my entire life..any time papers or projects were due in school, I was always the girl that waited until the night before & would end up pulling an all-nighter. I usually wait until the last minute to do pretty much everything, I don’t even know why. Because then I’m scrambling and it can get stressful.

Roasted Garlic & Rosemary Artisan Bread | Fabtastic EatsLately though, I’ve been trying a lot harder to get things done well ahead of time, like my xmas cards!, and it feels so much better! I know, all you type a’s are cringing at the procrastination and intentionally putting myself in a stressful situation, I can’t help it, I like to live on the edge πŸ˜‰

Roasted Garlic & Rosemary Artisan Bread | Fabtastic EatsThis crusty, delicious bread though? That takes a small amount of planning ahead of time, not much, but enough that you can’t do what I did yesterday, and start frantically searching around for a quick bread recipe for dinner. This bread is mouthwatering…crusty on the outside, soft and airy on the inside, loaded with buttery roasted garlic and fresh rosemary. It rises for a good amount of time, then cooks in your dutch oven, and what results is golden brown perfection.

You can eat this with whatever you desire, I like to sit on my kitchen floor with it loaded in butter too, but the recipe coming tomorrow is what I served it up with, this particular time! πŸ˜‰ Enjoy!

Roasted Garlic & Rosemary Artisan Bread

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 40 minutes

Total Time: 9 hours

Yield: 1 loaf crusty bread

Crusty, no-knead, artisan bread, flavored with fresh rosemary and buttery, roasted garlic!


  • 1 head of garlic
  • 1 TB olive oil
  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 cup bread flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon active dry yeast
  • 1 1/2 cups warm water
  • 1 sprig fresh rosemary, minced (1-2TB)


  1. Preheat oven to 400Β°. Slice the top off the garlic to expose the cloves, drizzle with olive oil, and wrap in tinfoil. Roast for 30-40 minutes until golden brown.
  2. Squeeze out the garlic into a small bowl or plate, and using a fork, mash well until smooth and creamy.
  3. In a large bowl, stir together the flours, salt, yeast, and rosemary. Using a wooden spoon, stir in the mashed garlic and water until it comes together. The dough will be shaggy, that's okay.
  4. Cover and let rise for 8-24 hours. (Mine rose for around 14)
  5. Preheat a dutch oven in the oven at 450Β°
  6. Flour a surface, roll the dough out onto it, and shape into a round disk.
  7. Place in the heated dutch oven, cover with the lid and bake for 30 minutes. Remove the lid, and cook for an additional 8-15 minutes, until golden brown.

    Ughhhhhh I have only bought one Christmas gift ONE, I have approximately 50 others to buy, and I’m STRESSED! Someday I’ll learn to shop ahead of time. There is nothing on this earth more gratifying than making your own bread, and this looks phenomenal!

    Made this yesterday and it was great! Served it to my wife with salad and fresh fried blue gills, it made her day. Crust was crisp but tender and the bread was moist. Garlic and rosemary did not overpower the flavor. Will bake this again.

    Making bread frightens me but I reckon I could give this stunning loaf a whirl.

    Decided to give this a try to serve with some tuscan soup. I did make one change – I doubled the garlic and I did not mash it but instead left the clove hole and folded it into the dough. We had a bakery back home that made bread that way and it was amazing. I would like to say both the bread and the soup I made were perfect but I could not stop eating the bread so I never got to the soup. This is a great recipe, so glad you shared it (until I have to hit the treadmill to make up for the amount I ate!).

      hah! I hear you on the treadmill, but when it’s totally worth it, it makes it a little better! Its one of my favorite breads too, so crusty! Im so happy that you enjoyed it, and I LOVE the idea of folding the cloves right in!

    I don’t have a Dutch oven. Can I bake it on a baking dish in the normal oven? If so for how long and temp?

    This sounds wonderful and was exactly what I was looking for! I have a couple questions as I’m a bread-making newbie:
    (1) can you make this ahead and refrigerate or freeze it until it’s time to bake? I was unsure if this would affect the yeast (2a) if I want to make two loaves, can I simply double the recipe? (2b)Before letting it rise should I split and shape my dough loaves? Thanks!
