Hello my lovelies, let’s strap on our aprons for another wonderfully delicious Rhodes recipe.   Focaccia; made with tarragon, butter, and garlic, what could be better?

This Focaccia bread will bring new life to any sandwich or meal.   This bread is thin and wonderfully seasoned. Your family or friends will shout for joy and praise your wonderful cooking abilities.

I know I am always looking for a new twist for sandwiches.  I have 5 children ranging in age from 17 to 7.  We make a lot of sandwiches and school lunches in our home.  My kids have gotten a little burned out on your traditional sandwich, lunch, etc. Something new and fun is always appreciated.

 

This seasoned and deliciously thin bread can be used in making your favorite sandwiches or it holds it's own as a compliment for any meal.

You will need the following  ingredients: 

1 loaf Rhodes ™ Bread Dough, thawed and risen
1/4 cup butter, melted ( ½ a cube)
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 teaspoon tarragon

9x13 baking pan
Rolling pin
Non-stick cooking spray
Plastic wrap

Place frozen loaf of bread in a zippered plastic bag.  Set on counter to thaw and rise, or place in the refrigerator the night before to thaw and rise over night.  

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

Once your bread has thawed and risen spray counter or work surface with non-stick cooking spray.  It is also very helpful to spray your rolling pin too.  

You don’t need to let the dough rise until double in size to roll into your shape. Although the dough will be easier to roll into a rectangle to fit your 9x13 baking pan. Let rest and prepare butter mixture.

Now prepare the following ingredients. Set aside 2 tablespoons of butter to brush into the bottom of your baking pan.

Melt 2 tablespoons butter; now mix with ½ teaspoon tarragon and one clove of minced garlic. I used a garlic press for my clove of garlic, it worked great!

Pour butter mixed with tarragon and garlic over dough. Cover with plastic wrap.  I used a chopstick to make my holes.  

So…… use what is available in your kitchen. It is fun to be creative!

All right, there are a few variations I would do.  I actually made this recipe 3 times wanting to experiment.  I wouldn’t let my dough rise as much for making sandwiches.  I want the bread to be a little thinner for sandwiches. You could also roll into a jelly roll pan for crispier bread.

A thick bread is great for garlic bread.  Eating for garlic bread I like it a bit saltier, so add a little salt.  If you are not a tarragon fan use Italian seasoning instead.We are huge fans of the BLT sandwich when we have fresh tomatoes in the garden.  This was a wonderfully delicious twist on our traditional BLT.  I have added this to our families’ dinner menu.  Delicious!

I will hang up my apron until we bake again.  Happy baking. I hope your family and friends enjoy this tasty Focaccia bread as much as mine did!  Let me know what you think
