am a total bread lover. Love all kinds. Love eating them as well as making 'em. Guess our bodies are programmed to like carbs. However, I always make it a point to use whole wheat flour in my bread to make them a little healthier.
Focaccia bread is a thick, very rustic, homely bread which may be topped with herbs and other ingredients such as onion, cheese, meat, veggies etc. It is very versatile as well. Use it for dipping or as a side to a pasta dish and salads or make sandwich, they are always great.
This one is the the easiest breads I have baked so far. The recipe is simple and if you have a food processor or electric mixer making Focaccia will be effortless. If you are new at bread baking, focaccia is great way to start because it's pretty forgiving too. As for the topping you can go as simple as brushing with a bit of olive oil, salt, and pepper or you can experiment with lots of toppings. I top it with whatever I have lying around. This time it happened to be feta cheese, cherry tomatoes and olives, but you could do caramelized onions, mozzarella, vegetables… really the possibilities are endless!Read more »
