Herbed Parmesan Onion Focaccia Recipe

Herbed Parmesan Onion Focaccia Recipe

This bread is so full of flavor that spreading butter on it is not necessary. I always hear yums, oohs and aahs when guests take their first bite. It's best served warm, and the next day makes the best toast you've ever had!
