I made a great sandwich with this focaccia... add some slices of smoked turkey breast, mixed field greens and a spicy homemade chipotle mayonnaise and served with an ice-cold homemade lemonade! Couldn't ask for a better picnic maker!

My goodness this was tasty! I used 1 Tablespoon olive oil and 1 Tablespoon butter to sautee the onions in for a little added richness. I used fresh rosemary from the garden for the herb. This is absolutely sinful! I think I could eat this alone with a nice glass of wine and be perfectly happy with the meal. I cannot wait to try it with sage as well.

Oh my, was this ever fantastic! I used the pizza dough recipe I normally use for homemade pizza, retarding it overnight in the refrigerator. I couldn't decide whether to use rosemary or sage, so decided to do half with each. But the grocery was out of fresh sage, so I went ahead and made it using only rosemary. Loved it, Derf--thanks!!
