I may have named this recipe Simple French Bread, and although the process of making it is simple, the taste is anything but that. The aroma of fresh bread baking in your house is one of those scents that everyone loves. It induces feelings of comfort as well as hunger for the impending dinner.
Unfortunately, conventional bread recipes take a little more work and time to bake the perfect loaf. This recipe is so simple that you only need one hour and as little as five ingredients, ingredients that you probably already have in your pantry.
After you make this recipe, you may never buy bread from the bakery again. You’ve just given yourself license to be the baker! So if you forgot to pick up bread to go with your Sunday night dinner and think that it’s too late to make a homemade loaf, think again. You will impress your family or dinner guests with this.
This recipe makes a great base to try out different combinations of flavors. In the past, I have tried lemon pepper oregano, sun-dried tomato and olive, and the one featured here, garlic onion Parmesan. You can serve this with butter or as I prefer, dipped in extra virgin olive oil.
