Focaccia Bread Squares Recipe
Looking for an alternative to garlic bread? Try this golden focaccia bread that's a big hit at our house. The dough is easy to whip up in the bread machine, then season with rosemary, garlic salt and Parmesan cheese. I serve it warm whenever we're having spaghetti or another Italian dish. -Kay King, Dyersville, Iowa
