Ingredients

  • For the Herb and Sun Dried Tomato Infused Oil:
  • 1/2 cup Mazola® Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1 Tablespoon fresh Oregano minced
  • 1 Tablespoon fresh Basil minced
  • 2 cloves fresh garlic minced
  • 1 cup jarred Sun Dried Tomatoes coarsely chopped
  • 1/3 cup grated parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon Kosher salt
  • For the Dough:
  • 4 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 packages Fleischmann's® RapidRise™ Yeast
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 1/3 cups very warm milk 120° to 130°F
  • 1 egg lightly beaten
  • 1/4 cup Mazola® Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Instructions

  1. For the infused oil:
  2. Combine olive oil, herbs, garlic, salt and sun dried tomatoes into a small bowl and set aside.
  3. For the bread dough:
  4. Place all ingredients in the pan of your automatic bread machine in the order recommended by the manufacturer. (My bread machine recommends all wet ingredients first, dry second, then a small valley for the yeast).
  5. Process on dough/manual cycle.
  6. Once cycle is complete, transfer dough to a lightly floured surface and using hands, pat dough into a 10x12 inch rectangle, approximately 1 inch thick.
  7. Divide dough into about 30 pieces using a pizza cutter, or knife and roll into balls.
  8. Dip dough balls into olive oil and herb mixture to lightly coat. Arrange coated dough balls evenly in bottom of a greased 10-inch tube or bundt pan.
  9. Cover; let rise in a warm, draft-free place until doubled in size, about 30 minutes.
  10. Bake in a 350° preheated oven for 25-30 minutes, or until done. Let cool in pan on a rack for 10 minutes. Invert to remove from pan and serve immediately.
