Tender, yet rustic focaccia recipe with a rich olive oil flavor. This Focaccia Bread with Roasted Garlic and Olives makes a wonderful addition to any meal.
Remember that roasted garlic we made last week? Well now it’s time to put it to good use!
The other day I realized that it has been a long time since I’ve made focaccia bread.
What a travesty. Especially since focaccia bread is one of my favorite breads to make at home.
It’s so….. free-spirited.
There is no need to form perfect loaves, or brush a perfect glossy glaze over the top.
In fact, once your dough is ready, you can shape it anyway you please, and add additional flavors ’til your heart’s content.
The last time I posted a focaccia recipe, I made a lemon-herb variety and decorated the top with red onions. Today’s focaccia recipe involves roasted garlic and olive “buttons.”
I love this particular Focaccia Bread with Roasted Garlic and Olives because it’s lighter and more tender than most of the focaccia recipes I’ve played with.
It has a rich olive oil flavor, but texturally, it’s more like a soft country bread.
I’ve loaded it up with sweet roasted garlic, and pressed kalamata olives deep into the surface to add briny contrast.
Focaccia Bread with Roasted Garlic and Olives is heavenly.
You can make a huge flat loaf in an 11 X 15 inch baking dish, a slightly taller than average 9 X 13 loaf, or press it out free-form on a baking sheet.
This is a baking project just for you.
