Inspiration hit full on when I attended the BC Blueberry launch recently at Model Milk. The Chef prepared so many amazing blueberry bites, that I’m sure all the attendees left full and happy. We were given swag bags to bring home and they included fresh blueberries (insert happy dance)!
There were several of the bites that stood out for me. One of them was the Blueberry Focaccia’s served in mini cast iron pans. Brilliant and a hit amongst everyone. For weeks I have been wanting to recreate this dish and thinking about how I would do it.
The time came and I decided to make the dough in the bread maker and grill it on the Barbecue. I’ve made focaccia dough in the bread maker before so I was confident it would work. And it did work out exceptionally well. The only con is the Bocconcini melted into the bread so next time I may wait to add it until the last few minutes or so of cooking.
You could also take this recipe camping. Pre-make your dough and keep it in the cooler or buy some pizza dough before you depart on your camping trip. Just make sure you bring the blueberries and a cast iron pan!
The kids gobbled it up. The husband like it. A success! Leftover focaccia ended up being the perfect lunch the next day.
