Macaroni Grill Rosemary Bread

Macaroni Grill Bread


We love (love, love, LOVE!), eating at Macaroni Grill, but feeding our family of five there can be so expensive! So when I came across this recipe for Macaroni Grill's Rosemary Bread, I knew I had to try it out. It's amazing what a simple loaf of bread can do to turn an ordinary spaghetti dinner into something worth coming to the table for, and the entire loaf was devoured by my family in well under ten minutes. (My kids love their bread!)

You do need a bread machine for this recipe (I've had mine for 15 years and it is one of my favorite gifts ever!) While it's a bit of a splurge initially, we use ours at least once every two weeks, and it really does make baking homemade bread so much easier.  I always figure I can make up a loaf of bread at home in less time than it takes to find a coupon and head to the grocery store! 😉  If you love Macaroni Grill Recipes, you'll also want to try out this recipe for Macaroni Grill Chicken Milano ~ which works perfectly with those BOGO Sun Dried Tomatoes this week at Publix. Yummmm!

  1. I’ll have to see if this can be made somehow without a bread machine.

    Leftovers make excellent croutons, by the way! Just cube it, toss in melted butter, and throw int he oven to dry out.

  2. I have wanted a bread machine ever since I first saw you post this recipe and I finally got one. I found one at a consignment store that was in brand new condition with all parts/instruction manual and only $29.99. I have made a couple loaves of bread from the recipe book, but we haven’t been impressed. So glad you posted this today!
