Fluffy caramelized onion focaccia is topped a sprinkling of parmesan cheese. You won’t be able to stop at just one slice.
I am obsessed with bread. Some might say I am addicted.
Like it’s a bad thing. I don’t know. Maybe it is. But I’m not sorry.
Nope, not sorry about my love of bread.
It’s not like I will inhale any bread you put in front of me. No, no. I like good bread; really good bread.
In fact, really good bread is how I ended up learning how to bake in the first place. I wanted to learn how to make a nice, crusty bread at home.
Many people are nervous about working with dough that uses yeast, but in all honesty, it is one of the more forgiving types of bread, so as long as your yeast isn’t completely dead, you should still be able to get a decent bread that will surpass whatever you buy at the store.
To check if your yeast is dead before you attempt to make the caramelized focaccia, simply add the yeast to warm water and wait for 5 – 10 minutes. Afterward, you should get some foam at the top of the water.
It might not be a lot, but as long as there is some, the yeast is good. Dead yeast will not foam, all you will have is some slightly cloudy water. If it doesn’t foam, buy new yeast and start again.
Focaccia happens to be one of the easiest breads you can make because you only need to roll out the dough so that it is the same size and shape of your pan.
From there, add your oil and caramelized onions, and you are set. It is the perfect beginner bread to make, but delicious enough to easily impress anyone who tries it.
What I love about this caramelized onion focaccia is that it makes a great snack on its own, but also works well with just about any dish you make as a side.
In some cases, I like to slice it in half and use it as super delicious sandwich bread!
