Cheesy Onion Mini Focaccia~~My 2,500th Post

Today's post is my 2,500th post, am very happy and proud. Nothing is possible without all your constant support and encouraging words.Thanks to each and every for being part of my culinary journey.Am starting today my first week of blogging marathon with an interesting theme,yep today's theme is savoury baked dishes. Obviously the next two days posts are going to be baked savoury dishes. For my today's post, am posting a classic Italian,super cheesy and aromatic mini focaccia bread.Focaccia is a flat oven baked Italian bread which may be topped with herbs,cheese,veggies or simply with other ingredients like meats.Focaccia bread are quite popular in italy and they are flavoured with many ingredients.

Focaccia dough ressembles quite like pizza dough and they are rolled out or pressed by hand into thick layer of dough and then baked in oven.This bread can be used as side for many meals also for making sandwich bread.Usually focaccia comes in three variations, classic focaccia with fresh tomatoes and olives, potato focaccia with potato slices and white Focaccia with salt grains and rosemary. Some other variations includes peppers, onions, eggplant or other vegetables.Coming to my mini focaccia, i simply prepared with grated cheese along with sauteed onions and parsley leaves, a prefect side to enjoy with some warm soups.Check out the Blogging Marathon page for the other Blogging Marathoners doing BM#30.



3cups All purpose flour
2tsp Active dry yeast
1tsp Salt
1tsp Sugar
1 +1/4cups Warm water
1cup Onion (chopped)
3tbsp Parsley leaves (chopped)
Salt for cooking the onions
Olive oil (sauting and drizzling)
Grated cheese (for topping)

Mix the sugar, salt and yeast in luke warm water, let them sit for 5 minutes.

Take the all purpose flour in a mixing bowl, add the foaming yeast, mix everything well.

It will be stickly at this point, transfer the them to lightly floured surface, knead for a while until they turn as a soft dough.

Coat a deep bowl with olive oil,place the soft dough also brush with more oil, cover it and let it sit for an hour in a warm place.

Punch down the doubled dough and divide the dough as 7-8balls, knead the dough again and make a medium sized circle like disc.

Arrange the flattened disc in a baking sheet lined over a baking tray.

Meanwhile heat the olive oil , saute well the chopped onion and chopped parsley leaves with salt together for few minutes and keep aside..

The dough will doubled again in size.

Press the dough gently in the center with your fingertips, just spread the sauteed onion and parsley leaves over the dough.

Gently sprinkle the grated cheese over the onion mixture.

Preheat the oven to 350F, place the baking tray in middle rack, bake for 15-20 minutes or else until the dough turns slightly brown..

Serve them with cream cheese, salads or else with a bowl of soup.Sending to Guru's Giveaway - Kid's Special.
