Mama’s Mini Focaccia Buns

My little Focaccia buns are a snap to make! NO KNEADING required.

IMG_7265“Foo-Kah” bread as we all still call it (the Boyz couldn’t say Focaccia when they were little) has it’s origins in Ancient Rome. Panis focasius was a flat bread baked on a hearth. Over the years as cooking style have evolved, it has become the focaccia of today.

All you need is few simple ingredients and then whatever you want on top.

 

3Cups flour                        1 1/2 Cups warm water      2 1/4 tsp yeast (or 1 package)

2+ TBS Olive Oil (or canola or whatever you have)  2 TBS minced rosemary

1tsp salt                1TBS sugar

~That’s it! Those are the basic ingredients.~

In large bowl mix together the flour, sugar,  salt , yeast and rosemary. Add the water and

divide into muffin pans

olive oil and mix with spoon. Dough will be very sticky.  Divide up into greased muffin tins (or just use cupcake papers) Cover and let rise about 20-30 minutes. *I make a dozen with this recipe, but it will stretch to 18 for smaller buns*

 

Heat oven to 375   gather up whatever you want on top. We like tomatoes, and seasonings and cheese,  olives, onions and stuff.  Dice up whatever you are using into little pieces and brush buns with some olive oil and put your toppings on.

toppings added. ready to bake

(we like to add extra diced tomatoes right into the dough itself.)

Bake for about 15 minutes. You’ll know. They will be firm on top.

Gobble up. Dip in sauces, olive oil, gravies or just east them as is.

If you like a sweeter or a dessert bread : skip the rosemary and use like candied fruits or raisins or dates and sprinkle with sugar. Focaccia dolce or sweet focaccia.

*Boyz tips*  diced pepperoni, bacon, mushrooms, Feta cheese, olives.. all great toppings! For seasonings just use generic Italian seasoning, or herb or whatever is in your cupboard. Rosemary is Not a must. we just like it. and Yes- this will still turn out if you have no measuring cups or spoons… a coffee cup, soup spoon and teaspoon will work for measuring. Poor boy style 😉  yes.. you can used canned tomatoes.  ***If you don’t have muffin pans, grease your cookie sheet and press out the dough onto it all the way to the corners. use your finger and poke ‘indents’ all around. Let rise… finish as above***

Manga!
