Rosemary Bread (in the Bread Maker)

Making bread at home is one of those old fashioned skills that can save you a ton of money.  But nowadays, you don’t need to be a master baker if you have a bread maker to do all the hard work for you.  After a lot of research, this is the bread maker I chose to buy for my family… and we are using it all the time!

We have started saving a lot of money by switching from grocery store bought sliced bread to making our own.  For the full price comparison, check out Is a Bread Maker Really worth the Cost?

We make a simple and delicious French bread for sandwiches, but every once in a while we like to mix things up and try something a little different.

That is when this rosemary bread recipe comes in… and it really hits the spot!  It is light and fluffy, and it has the perfect balance of rosemary and olive oil.  Toast it in the morning for a gourmet breakfast treat, or serve it with Italian Casserole or a simple spaghetti dinner to make the meal even more special.

Save Recipe


  • 1 cup water
  • 1 tsp salt - $.39 for 26oz at Aldi, so $.003 for one tsp
  • 3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil - $6.99 for 33.8 fl.oz at Trader Joes, so $.31 for 3 tbsp
  • 3 cups bread flou - $2.99 for a 5 lb bag at Martin's, so $.48 for 3 cups
  • 2 tsp rosemary - $3.99 for 28.4 g at Walmart, so %4.56 for 2 tsp
  • 2 1/4 tsp active dry yeast - $4.49 for a 2 lb bag at Costco, so $.04 for 2 1/4 tsp
  • Total Cost: $1.393
  • *On my kitchen scale, I measured 1 cup of flour at 4.25oz, 1tsp yeast weighed .125 oz, 1 tsp salt weighed 1/4 oz, and 1 tsp rosemary weighed 2g (grams were the unit of measurement for rosemary). I used these measurements to calculate the price.


  1. Put the ingredients into your bread maker in the order listed, making a little crater in the flour to add the yeast.
  2. Set your bread maker to the white bread setting, 1.5-pound loaf, and whatever crust setting you prefer. When it is done, be sure to let it cool completely before slicing!

How easy is that? Not to mention inexpensive, fresh, and delicious for the whole family!
