Brad and I cook according to our personalities. I follow recipes fairly closely, hesitating before I substitute any ingredients or make any other modifications. I also can’t just make stuff up; I know how to follow a recipe, but I probably don’t know how to actually cook. Brad is blessed with the kind of easygoing personality that allows him to not stress over missing ingredients and make up stuff on the fly. This delicious bread was his idea. But let’s give credit where credit is due: I made up the garlic bread version of this and claim complete responsibility for inspiring his apple variety. And I supplied an oven temperature. Marriage is all about working as a team, folks.
makes 1 foccacia
This is sort of a cheat: You buy a ready-to-bake foccacia, then put a bunch of goodies on top and bake it. We only cheat because we’re busy. See my garlic bread version below for a savory option (and so I can prove that it’s not a one-man show around here).
1 ready-to-bake foccacia (we found ours in a pack of two at Costco)
3 to 4 tablespoons melted butter
1 teaspoon cinnamon
scant 1/4 cup white or raw sugar
1 yummy apple, sliced
Preheat the oven to 450 degrees Fahrenheit.
Brush the top of the foccacia with the melted butter. Arrange the apple slices on top. Combine the cinnamon and sugar and sprinkle to taste over the apples.
Bake for 15 minutes.
Garlic Bread: Brush the foccacia with melted butter, then sprinkle it with a few teaspoons minced garlic and parmesan cheese. Bake as directed.
