Rosemary Parmesan Bread Australia Recipe

Make savory herb bread with cheese at home.



  • 2 cups bread flour
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 tbsp dried rosemary
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 1 tbsp instant dry yeast
  • 1 cup parmesan cheese in small cubes
  • 1 1/2 cups lukewarm water


  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine bread flour, rosemary, salt, and yeast.
  2. Add Parmesan cheese cubes and gently toss them in the dry ingredients.
  3. Pour in the lukewarm water and gently fold the ingredients with a spoon until a dough forms.
  4. The dough will appear bumpy because of the cheese. If it’s too dry, add 1-2 tbsp of water. And if it’s sticky, you can add a little bit of flour.
  5. Sprinkle flour onto your kitchen countertop, and knead the dough for 5-6 minutes, or until smooth. Make sure none of the cheese escapes the dough.
  6. Once kneaded, place the dough in a large bowl. Make sure to oil the bowl before placing the dough. Cover the bowl with a kitchen towel, and let it rise at room temperature for 30-40 minutes.
  7. Once done, it will double in size. While the dough rises, pre-heat the Dutch oven to 450F.
  8. Place the dough on a large piece of parchment paper and transfer it to the Dutch oven. Cover with the lid and bake the bread for about 30-40 minutes. Make sure to reduce the temperature to 400F.
  9. Remove the bread from the oven once cooked and transfer it to the wire rack to cool. Slice the bread and serve it with your favorite soup or spread.

Other Recipes to Try

Follow these simple recipes:


  • Top off the bread with shredded parmesan cheese and pepper.
  • You can also top the bread with garlic butter, as it complements the flavor of rosemary.
  • If you want soft bread, you can replace some of the water in the recipe with whole milk.
  • You can store this bread in the refrigerator for over a week. Make sure to either store the bread in an air-tight container or a plastic wrap because otherwise it will lose its moisture and turn chewy.
