Focaccia Bread Flavoured with Rosemary,Onions and Olives

I love making bread,specially breads which have lots of flavour like this one...This bread has a lovely fruity olive oil flavour in it..

I love to use olive oil a lot more nowadays because I feel that it is lot more healthy and has a lovely flavour in it..I have recently addicted to EVOO(extra virgin olive oil)...Yes I started saying like this after watching rachael ray shows...

And Guys have you ever watched rachael’s shows...I love her shows so much because she cook so energetic and enthusiastic..We can see a passion in her cooking and also she gives lots of tips in between cooking...If you have never watched her show before,you should do it now...

Now back to our focaccia...I flavoured it with onions,olives and rosemary because I love the sweetness of onions when it has been baked and also I found that rosemary and onions go very well together...So I throwed some in..

Other suggested toppings are sundried tomatoes,basil,shredded chedder cheese,parsley and many more...

One of the weird topping is......Vegetarians turn aside...This is only for meat eater....If you want to be little bit naughty just throw some bacon bits in it...YUM YUM Right...

I know that everyone is going to try out this bread...Bu how do you serve it...I have couple of recipes for serving this bread..Two interesting recipes.....I will post it in my coming posts...So wait for it...

Now are you ready to bake bread..
