Grape/Bleu Cheese/Walnut Focaccia

Recipe by teapotter

I prefer blue cheese over stilton in this recipe.

Great combination of flavors! Better at room temperature than hot! I toasted 1 cup walnuts in a medium-hot iron skillet, chopped them pretty finely, then added 1/4 cup to my crust, and saved the rest for the topping. I used Gorgonzola and 2 cups red and black seedless grapes, instead of a red/green combination! I omitted the egg wash, and immediately baked the foccacia on a Pyrex pizza pan, after it was assembled. Tagged for my Oh sooooo blue theme for My-3-Chefs 2013.
