I love a piece of good crusty bread. Skillet bread is very similar to focaccia from an Italian restaurant. Do you remember the Macaroni Grill? I think it was my favorite place just for the bread.
Quick weeknight skillet bread is my version of the focaccia at Macaroni Grill. Except, it can be made super quick for your weeknight supper. You can crave it at two o’clock pm and have it on the dinner table. It is that easy.
I bake this in a 10-inch iron skillet. This proves to make the crust of the bread crispy. In addition, you only need a handful of ingredients to make this skillet bread tonight. A total of two hours is all you need to serve this delicious bread to your family. It is the perfect accompaniment to soup, chicken, and any pasta dish.
2 1/4 teaspoon active dry yeast
2 cups of lukewarm water
1/2 Tablespoon salt
4 cups of all-purpose flour
olive oil and/or butter
1 teaspoon dried or fresh rosemary, 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder, 1/4 teaspoon Italian seasoning
Enjoy your skillet bread with supper. If you are lucky you might have a little left over the next day. This bread works well to make sandwiches with too. It gives sandwiches a gourmet touch.
