Easy herb focaccia bread


A really easy bread that is great with cheese ( I love it with Mersey Valley ) . Sunday nights we often have soup for tea and this is a bread I have made to accompany it.


2 cups plain flour

1/2 teaspoon salt

2 teaspoons dry yeast

1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese

1 tablespoon chopped fresh rosemary

1 tablespoon chopped fresh sage ( I had some frozen)

2 teaspoons chopped fresh parsley

2 tablespoons olive oil

1 cup warm water

sea salt


Stir flour and salt into large bowl. Add yeast,cheese and herbs. Pour in oil and water and gradually stir in flour. Mix to a soft dough.

Turn onto floured surface and knead for 5 or so minutes.

Place dough on greased over tray, press into 20 cm round. Cover with greased gladwrap and place in warm place to allow to double in size ( about 1 hour)

Remove plastic and drizzle with a little olive oil, sprinkle with sea salt.

Bake for about 25 minutes.  Smells so good!
