Bon Appetit Blue Cheese-Bacon Focaccia

The males in my house love bacon. Not just a little bit, but they would literally add bacon to everything they ate if they could. My dad was the same way growing up. He couldn't even boil a pot of water, but every Sunday there would be bacon and fried potatoes waiting at the breakfast table that he had prepared. Don't get me wrong I like bacon, but I'm more of  a breakfast sausage fan than the rest of the family. However, I do appreciate the taste of bacon in recipes and was intrigued when the October issue of Bon Appetit had a recipe for Blue Cheese-Bacon Focaccia.

This recipe has 10 ingredients. It serves 12 people and takes a total time of approximately 2 hours and 15 minutes, with 25 being active. I had no problems finding any of the ingredients at my local grocery store. The only problem I encountered with the recipe was that the dough was a little too sticky to handle. I had to add additional flour and the texture was still a little soft. However, the taste was delicious. I would recommend using even more cheese and bacon than the recipe states, probably approximately double the total amount. The total cooking time in the recipe was a little short, I left my focaccia in for 5 minutes longer. I followed the recipe as stated with no major ingredients modifications.

As expected the most popular part of this recipe in my household was the bacon. The bread turned out delicious and re-heated very well in the oven the next day. My husband ate part of the leftovers cold for breakfast the next day and thought that it still tasted delicious. I would recommend adding additional bacon and cheese, especially if your family love either of the ingredients. A great, easy focaccia recipe.
