Garlic Onion Focaccia

I use my bread machine to prepare the dough for this savory Italian flat bread. It's a great addition to any meal. At times, I make it for myself as a main-dish "pizza". -Cindy Cameron Omaha, Nebraska

    So yummy! I used Vidalia onions, which made it a touch sweeter. Definitely will do again.

    I love this recipe. I don't change anything. I could eat it everyday. I took it to a party and people loved it.One thing, I don't have a bread machine. I use my kitchen aid and it turns out great.
