How to Make Italian Herb & Sun-Dried Tomato Focaccia


  1. Lightly grease bottom and sides of a 9 x13 baking pan with 1 - 2 tablespoons of olive oil. In a large bowl combine all ingredients except cheese and sun-dried tomatoes, and beat at high speed with an electric mixer or wooden spoon for 60 seconds, batter will be sticky. Scoop batter into the prepared pan and spread evenly, cover with plastic wrap, let rise at room temperature for 1 hour or until it becomes puffy. The last 10-15 minutes that the dough is rising, preheat oven to 375°. Gently poke the dough all over with your fingers, but do not poke through the dough, just create small "dimples". Drizzle dough lightly with olive oil, and sprinkle with shredded Parmesan cheese, additional dried herbs of your choice, and sun-dried tomatoes, if desired. Bake the bread until it's golden brown, 35 to 40 minutes. Remove from oven, wait 5 minutes, then take Focaccia out of the pan and place onto a rack. Slice and serve warm or at room temperature.

    *Note: You could add a variety of toppings such as; sliced olives, crushed red pepper, shredded mozzarella cheese, sliced roma tomatoes, caramelized onions, fresh garlic etc.
