Rosemary Bread like Macaroni Grill

This bread is delicious!! Seriously good. It tastes just like the bread they serve at macaroni grill. I couldn't get it quick as crunchy on the outside as the bread they serve, but the taste was awesome. I got the recipe from Some the the reviewers suggested putting an egg wash on the bread. I did that and it helped to get a nice brown crust.
