Grilled Rosemary & Onion Focaccia

Grilled Rosemary & Onion Focaccia at Chasing Delicious

There are two things I can’t get enough of. One is bread – I love every and all breads. The other is grilling and cooking over an open flame. Combining the two puts me in a sort of culinary heaven.

And that’s exactly what this loaf of focaccia is, culinary heaven. When you begin to mix the dough you will notice right off the bat that is is loaded with onion; you may even think there is too much onion for this to even work – don’t worry though; there’s no such thing as too many onions. Once you get this focaccia on the grill though you will begin to see how delightful this loaf is. Almost right away the smell of cooking onions and the caramelizing of the crust will linger around the grill.

Take this sucker off of the grill and you’ve got yourself a fresh, earthy loaf of bread that has a deliciously smokey flavor and wonderful caramelized, grilled crust. This may just be my new favorite bread.

Focaccia: Focaccia is characterized by a chewy crust and a tender, uneven crumb. To achieve this, focaccia dough is a very wet dough. While this makes it a little tricky to work with, it is definitely worth every bit of dough that will stick to your hands. Focaccia is also the perfect vessel for various flavorings and here I’ve included onion and rosemary. You can add flavorful ingredients to the dough before rising, on top of the dough just before baking (or in this case grilling) or even on top of the loaf after it is done. Serving focaccia with a little seasoned olive oil is never a bad idea either.

    Totally agree! Bread + grilling + lots of onions sounds heavenly! Great recipe!

  • Ashley Bee (Quarter Life Crisis Cuisine)

    I love foccacia, it’s a very versatile bread! Rosemary and sage are great additions to it. I am not a huge fan of onions, but perhaps caramelizing them first would win me over.

    What is it with men and naked flames … LOL This sounds delicious, and I agree you can never have too many onions. Well not in bread, anyway.

    I love focaccia, and the fact that you grilled it? Genius!

    Yummy! Focaccia bread is so tasty when fresh. Add Oinion and grilling is a wonderful idea, especially on hot summer days so you do not heat up the house.

  • Carolyn

    Wow, grilled focaccia, how come I’ve never thought of that!???!

  • Sasha

    Lacking the ability to grill outdoors is the only thing that makes me regret living in the city.
