I love bread. I’m totally a bread girl. Give me a basket of warm bread, (and LOTS of softened butter), and I’m one happy camper..I don’t even need to order dinner. I’ve been known to demolish a loaf of warm Italian Bread in one sitting. I know, I’m so carb-conscience.
I’ve blogged about Focaccia bread before, back when I first started this little blog, before I changed the name & started to learn about lighting in photographs! Eek! I continually make that original focaccia bread & it’s fabulous dipped in an herbed oil, its my favorite go-to! But I’ve recently become obsessed with focaccia as the vessel for sandwiches! It adds even more flavor & just gives it a little pizazz!
This is my favorite focaccia roll! It’s easy, it’s delicious, soft and herb-y. Yep, it’s a word. Make it. Oh! oh! And definitely come back Wednesday for one of my favorite sandwiches ever using these fabulous rolls!!
- 1 1/4 cup warm water
- 1 teaspoon honey
- 1 Tablespoon active dry yeast
- 1/4 cup olive oil, divided
- 2 teaspoon salt
- 1 1/2 teaspoons Italian seasoning, divided
- 1 teaspoon dried rosemary, divided
- 3 1/2 cups flour
- In the bowl of a stand mixer, stir together the water, honey, and yeast.
- Allow to proof for ten minutes until nice and frothy.
- Add 2 Tablespoons olive oil, salt, 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning, and 1/2 teaspoon of the rosemary, and mix together.
- In a small bowl, mix together the remaining olive oil and herbs, and set aside.
- Attach the dough hook and add the flour.
- Knead on medium for 10-12 minutes, until the dough is smooth and elastic and doesn't stick to your hands.
- Oil a large bowl and add the dough. Cover with a damp towel or plastic wrap and put in a draft-free area to rise for 1 1/2-2 hours, or until the dough doubles in size.
- Once risen, punch down, and divide into 12 equal size balls.
- Place on a greased baking sheet, cover with a damp towel, and allow to rise for 30-40 minutes.
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
- Using the remaining olive oil and herb mix, brush on top of each roll.
- Pop in the oven for 20-25 minutes, until the tops are golden brown and the rolls sound hollow.
