Breakfast Focaccia !

Since I made a couple of batches of no-knead bread dough yesterday I thought I'd whip up some breakfast focaccia. Baked at 525 deg on large egg. On the plates also are some of my "freaky Italian dried peppers" which really are good with eggs / bread etc.

The focaccia got great ... nice crust and crumb and the eggs were a little over / hard cooked for my taste but I wanted to be sure the focaccia/bread part was fully baked.

    Bread looks great and the peppers cetainly look "freaky". Maybe you add the eggs later in the bake?

  • Yes, I was considering pre-baking the focaccia a little before adding the eggs ... I'll probably try that next time. FB/SGP

    That does look like it came out great. I think adding the eggs a little into the cook probably would be a good idea.

  • It WAS great ...just a memory now until next time! ;)

  • They are freaky alright. I've been eating them since I was a kid. I have a pretty good video showing how I cook them, learned from my mother. Also, if you were ever in our store , there are zillions of those peppers on strings drying all over the place. A lot of people think they are plastic decorations!

  • I'm already working on lunch. I've got more of the "plain" focaccia in my fridge and a hard salami I brought back from Molinari's I bought on my recent trip to Tony G's pizza school in San Fran.. ... I hear that calling me now... Where's the provolone?!! :P

  • Make the focaccia lots thinner next time (closer to pizza thickness) and you won't have overcooked eggs.

    It's usually easier to fry the eggs separately and add them to the bread at the end. Fewer tears that way....

    Yum! Toad in the hole without the hole! Toad on the dough?

    It reminds me of this post from Smitten Kitchen:

    Perhaps a new pizza eggsperiment?
