Rosemary Flax Baguette

For this HBn5 assignment I chose to do the Rosemary Flax Baguette. I always have flax meal and wheat germ on hand. The rosemary came right out of the garden. So, no new ingredients to buy. The texture of this dough was really nice, and after I mixed it up..the aroma...outstanding, very earthy and robust. Rosemary has that quality. Then during baking, I think I was transported by the smell. As they say in the south, good enough to make you wanna slap your Grandmama!



I took the baguettes and sliced them diagonally, rubbed the slices with garlic, topped them with freshly harvested tomatoes, basil, and some Parmesan. Popped them in the oven until the cheese was melted and tomatoes soft. One bite and well...look out Grandmama.


Head over to Big Black Dogs to see what the other bakers did with these breads.

Until our next baking adventure.

I had to find somewhere that sold the flax but I had all these ingredients and enjoyed like you the aroma.

I'm going to have to make the Rosemary Flax Bread. I got too caught up in the Vollkornbrot and skipped it but now it's on my agenda for tomorrow!

WOW..nothing better then homegrown tomatoes on freshly made bread! Sounds so good!

If you wanted to slap Grandma that must have been some great bread. I didn't get to it but I am going to have to try it. Your baquettes are lovely. I'd also love a taste of that tomato open face sandwich.

Really nicely formed baguettes. And your open-faced tomato sandwiches looked great. Will have to copy your idea.

Isn't it satisfying when so much of your meal comes from the garden?! Your baguettes look great, and I like the diagonal slicing you did--I forget about that sometimes. It gives you more room for the topping!
