I have made foccacia in the past, but this recipe is delicious. The dough was easy to work with and the bread was lovely and moist. Like other reviewers, my onions had been too fine and were overdone by the end of cooking. I drizzled the hot bread with some olive oil before serving with spaghetti and meatballs. Next time I will try adding the onions nearer the end of cooking. Whole family loved this and have requested that it be made again soon.Reply
I made this with the onion topping to start with. I should have sliced the onions, as in your recipe, instead of chopping them. By the time I had caramelised them and then they baked on top of the bread, there wasn't much substance to the onion! I had chopped them too finely. I doubled the recipe and made two batches for my cooking class and we tried all sorts of toppings; garlic and thyme, olives, sun-dried tomatoes. All wonderful.Reply
