What the Beck???

Simple Rosemary Focaccia Bread

Recipe Review

Today’s Recipe and Location: Simple Rosemary Focaccia
Found in: The Pioneer Woman blog

I figured out that there are 546 calories, if 6 slices are made or 328 calories is the bread is cut into 10 slices. (Please note that the calorie counts vary depending on the specific brands of ingredients that you choose to use.)

     I liked the flavor of this bread. It would be great for sandwiches or even better as a dipping bread in marinara sauce. That idea can from Travis, one of my remodelers.  Fabulous idea, Trav!

 I began by measuring the flour and 
olive oil in my mixing bowl.

 I added in the yeast,


 and salt.

 I started mixing and slowly added in the warm water.

I changed from the paddle to the hook and continued 
mixing for several minutes. 

 I sprinkled some flour on the counter.

 The dough was now ready to knead.

I kneaded the dough, 

 and put it in a bowl coated with olive oil,  to rise.
The room was pretty cold, so I let
it rise for a couple of hours.

After it had risen, I used my fingers to form a rough
rectangle. I placed it on some parchment paper
that had olive oil and cornmeal on it. 

Then, I carefully covered it with plastic wrap 
that was also greased. 

While the dough rested, I chopped the 
rosemary into fine pieces.

 I added some olive oil to the bread,

and then sprinkled on the chopped rosemary, 

salt, and red pepper flakes.

Ree's recipe called for Fleur De Sel instead of regular 
salt, but my local stores did not carry that type of salt.
I used fine sea salt instead.

I didn't know what that even was so I went to the computer.
Amazon described Fleur De Sel as:

"Fleur de sel is obtained by hand harvesting the young salt crystals that form on the surface of salt evaporation ponds giving the Fleur de Sel its characteristic crunch and clean light taste. This exquisite salt is hand harvested and is considered to be queen of all salts by the famous chefs and cooks everywhere."

The final cooked bread.
