Focaccia

This is a very good focaccia recipe.


Pour 1 1/2 C. of water in the bowl of your mixer. Add 1 T. of rapid rise yeast, 2 tsp. sea salt, 3 T. diced fresh rosemary and 3 T. olive oil.


Dice additional rosemary for sprinkling on top.


Beat in 3 C. of flour until you have a nice ball of dough. Place it in a greased bowl, cover and let rise until doubled.


Risen dough. Split it into two pieces.


Brush a cookie sheet with olive oil.


Spread the dough out on the cookie sheet and let it rest for a bit. Preheat your oven to 425 degrees. Brush with olive oil and indent by pushing your fingers into the dough. Sprinkle with cracked sea salt.


Bake for 25-30 minutes until it starts to turn golden. Remove and cool on a rack.


I made one with just rosemary and sea salt.


For this one, I topped it with thinly sliced onions, green pepper, mushrooms and oven roasted tomatoes.

BTW...the butter I posted yesterday did not impress me taste wise right out of the churn but this morning we all agreed it is some of the best butter we have ever had.

I am actually 'smelling' this foccaccia as I read this post, yummy yum yum. I have all ingredients except that darn yeast. I have to make sure I keep some in my pantry. xo
I'm not making this until next week, because it's so cold outside I would sit here and eat a whole pan. This would be a wonderful Super Bowl item!

My gramma always said butter needs to sit a spell, so maybe thats why,we never ate todays butter today, it was always yesterdays,

Thanks so much for this recipe! I'm really anxious to try it!
Now I'm inspired to make focaccia again...it sort of reminds me of pizza without the sauce and cheese, which I love!
This recipe looks great...I think I'll throw on some kalamata olives...or not!! :}
To bad it is so late over here now, otherwise I would have made this now :-)

Have a great day!

So butter tastes better after it's aged a bit -- who knew?

Yum! I absolutely love focaccia! My favourite is to make it with a potato dough - makes it incredibly rich and fluffy.
