Olive Patè & Hazelnuts FOCACCIA Bread

FOCACCIA con patè di olive e nocciolein italiano

Another Focaccia Bread recipe but this one is very particular. I have no idea how this combo came through my mind, I knew I wanted a olive pate’ focaccia and wanted to add a second ingredient that was going to give something extra and special to this focaccia. I thought of hazelnut grain. Just like that.

Don’t judge it before you have tried it . It’s very delicious, just perfect with a glass of wine.

This focaccia is not that thick and soft as the other ones I made, this one has to be flatter and with a brown outer border.

Please have a look to the other Focaccia bread recipes I’ve posted here in my blog:
