No Knead Focaccia Bread

Our cooking club theme for April was originally “Grilling” but with a forecast of 50F and rain, we changed it to Italian.  I had such a hard time deciding what to bring.  With antipasto, sausage stew, eggplant lasagna, meatballs, and tiramisu on the menu, there was only one thing missing – bread!  So I decided to try this No Knead Foccacia recipe from Budget Bytes.

It’s almost embarrassing to admit how little effort it took to make this bread.  The night before, I mixed flour, yeast, salt, and a teaspoon of garlic powder in a bowl and added water as the recipe indicated.  I went to bed, lounged around the next morning, and eventually turned the dough onto a cookie sheet for a second rise.  I brushed the dough with olive oil and herbs, and popped it in the oven.  When the bread was golden brown, I put the flat loaf on a cooling rack and sprinkled freshly grated Parmesan cheese.

That’s it, really!  The focaccia had a lot of flavor and was a nice complement to our meal.  I’ll be sure to make this again soon.
