Baguette – Herbs

Since I really like this formula,

I decided to make more variations of baguettes with my favorite ingredients.

This time….

Baguette - Herbs

Sage + Thyme + Rosemary!

I got an inspiration from therightrecipe’s this post.

Her caramelized tomatoes on the baguettes look super yummy,

so, I wanted to bake the baguette goes well with it!

Voilà! A Herb Baguette!

I was very ready to make therightrecipe’s caramelized tomatoes, but…

I didn’t have any cherry tomatoes in my house!!!

Baguette - Herbs

I know I should’ve gone to the grocery store to get some cherry tomatoes,

but, I couldn’t resist eating this freshly baked bread.

I enjoyed the crusty crust, soft-chewy crumb and  the scent of herbs.


Oh, I have to bake another batch!

* I changed Direction #4 – #10. Please check them out. 

Please have a look at my Baguette Summary as of 2.10.2013
