Carmelized Onion & Garlic Focaccia

This makes one tasty large pan of focaccia.

1/4 cup butter, melted
3 large onions peeled & sliced into rings
1 Tbsp. balsamic vinegar
1 pkg. (about 16 oz.) hot roll mix
1 cup warm water
2 Tbsp. softened butter
1 large egg

In a large skillet, melt the butter and add onions, cooking uncovered on med-low heat for 30 minutes while you occasionally stir. Add the vinegar and cook for 10 minutes more. Remove from heat and set aside.

Into a large bowl combine the hot roll flour mixture and yeast from the roll mix, stir in the warm water and 2 Tbsp. butter, add egg and  stir until dough pulls away from side of bowl. Turn out onto a floured surface and shape into a ball, knead about 5 minutes, cover, let rest for 5 minutes.

Grease a 12-inch. cookie sheet/pizza pan, place dough on and press into pan – do the best you can and take your time. Cover loosely and let rise for 30 minutes. Preheat oven to 400 degrees, uncover dough and with a wooden spoon handle make deep indents into dough about an inch apart. Spoon the onion mixture all over and gently spread.

Bake for about 25 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm or reheat.
