Easy Rosemary Olive Focaccia Bread is a rustic, delicious bread topped with jalapeno, onions, olive, rosemary for a quick filling bite. Serve it for breakfast or brunch.
I love a freshly baked Focaccia and it actually brings out the ‘bread monster’ in me. Oh how can you resist that soft crunch and with these toppings,, its like biting into a pizza, so you may call it a two-in-one bread too. It’s also the first bread that I ever baked and immediately fell in love with the fact that it’s actually so simple to make. Baked in just 20 mins and you are good to go.From my early food adventure days, I’ve always been very fond of baking but to bake a bread always scared me…I mean look at those bread we get at stores/coffee shop…who would think you can actually make them at home. So one day, I found a recipe in one of those airport cook books that we buy in random frenzy. Well….that didn’t turn out to be as I expected (I wanted something simple yet tasty)….so after lot of permutation combination, this is the recipe that I can swear by. I have made it soooo many times and every time, it gives me immense satisfaction. The baked bread is slightly crisp to touch but soft when you bite in and I always keep changing the topping.The rosemary-olive is my goto combination on this bread and for this particular recipe, I’m adding onion, jalapeno to give it an almost pizza kind of taste. If you actually make the dough thin and add some cheese ….. voila – you got yourself a freshly home baked pizza from scratch.One thing, you should always keep in mind when making this bread is to let it completely cool before slicing or serving it. As if it’s not cooled properly, the texture or the slices would be uneven and mushy and I’m sure you definitely don’t want that. I serve it along with some light olive oil and balsamic vinegar but you can serve it as you want…..maybe with some hot tea or chilled wine….added cheese, the combination is endless.I hope you give this simple recipe a try soon and do let me know how it turned out for you.
Have a Happy Weekend – Hugs, Molly 😉
