Light, airy and crunchy Focaccia bread recipe flavored with Italian herb seasoning and topped with dried rosemary and olive oil. Totally yum and d-licious!!
What is your favorite dinner for a busy weeknight? For me, it is quick and easy mexican corn soup with freshly baked Focaccia bread recipe – PERFECTO!! I enjoy eating my focaccia bread with warm soup but my kids love the traditional way. Their favorite way to eat this bread is by dipping it in olive oil- parmesan – black pepper mixture. Super yummy!
Focaccia is flat-bread topped with various herbs and olive oil and baked to perfection. Making your own homemade bread may seem like a daunting task, but it’s a pretty easy and a straight forward recipe.
RECIPE DETAIL – Just like any other bread, focaccia dough is also prepared by proofing the yeast mixture and adding that to the flour. Let is rise for at least an hour in a warm place. I like to season my focaccia bread with Italian herb seasoning, but if it’s not your favorite you can leave that out.
There are endless possibilities to flavor this bread – chili-garlic sauce, basil-garlic mixture, plain focaccia, add red bell peppers and olives to the dough and so on.
After the dough has risen, spread it in a baking tray and let it sit for another 20 minutes. The dough doesn’t need to double in size in this proofing – a slight rise is okay. Poke small holes or wells in the dough, sprinkle your toppings and bake for 20-25 minutes. The dough will rise and expand during baking, bake until golden in color.
Remove from oven and cool the bread on a wire rack and allow it to cool completely before slicing.This bread comes out crispy and crunchy on the outside and soft and fluffy from the inside. Enjoy this aromatic and flavorful focaccia bread dipped in olive oil – pepper mixture and enjoy!!
