Quick, Easy and Delicious Focaccia Recipe

I am sure you have all gathered by now that I am all about the easy life when it comes to cooking. If I can do it in one pot/pan/dish then I will make it. If it uses common ingredients then I am definitely going to make it. Summer is here which means its braai time.

Braai’s mean side dishes and if you are, like me, a little tired of potato bakes and green salads, then this super easy focaccia is the way to go. David loves all kinds of bread and while I am skilled at bread maker breads, I have never tried these types of breads because I assumed they were complicated but I assumed wrong.Focaccia | HarassedMom

We made these at an event I was at recently and it is so quick and easy. The dough does need time to rise but the actual kneading, preparing and baking is quick.

You can add any toppings or simple add some fresh herbs and coarse salt. It really is completely up to you.

You could even make these for dinner and add some cold meats, dips and spreads and take it all outside and enjoy.
