Focaccia Rolls

Focaccia Rolls

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!!

    Your photography is awesome now (my pictures used to be, as sometimes still are a bit yellowy too)! Congrats and good job girl! You have me drooling!

  3. I’m a sucker for bread too, it’s so bad! I love dipping focaccia in lots of olive oil!

  4. Focaccia is one of those things I crave and go buy, so I’m very glad to have found a pretty straightforward recipe to use! Pinning so I’m never attempted to buy something I can easily make :)

  5. I just made these– They turned out amazing. I fudged the recipe a bit (it was a touch confusing, or maybe I just didn’t read it all the way through. I’ve been known to do that) and they are beautiful!
