  • 1 Tbsp. chia seeds
  • 1-2 Tbsp. maple syrup or honey, to taste

  7. Roll dough up tightly, and seal edge.
  8. Using serrated knife, cut each dough roll into 16 equal slices.
  9. Place slices cut side down 3 inches apart on cookie sheet.

Hey, we get it! You don’t have to tell us that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. It’s usually because we’re rushing out the door that we’re too busy to stop and grab a bite to eat.

But, would you really skip it if you knew how incredibly quick it could be to whip up? There’s a fix for people who love breakfast but not the time that goes into making it … and it’s called Breakfast-Style Focaccia.

Breakfast-Style Focaccia
Ingredients

GlutenFreePizzaDoughBall

  • Wholly Gluten Free Pizza Dough Ball
  • 1 cup grated cheddar cheese, divided
  • 1/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for greasing and brushing
  • 2 tsp. Kosher salt
  • 6 ounces breakfast sausage, cooked and cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 4 strips cooked bacon, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 roasted red pepper, sliced into strips
  • Tinfoil
  • 6 eggs
  • Flaky sea salt, to taste

Directions

  1. In a large bowl knead the Wholly Gluten Free Pizza Dough Ball
  2. Transfer the dough to a greased baking sheet and press to fit the entire surface of the pan. Scatter the sausage, bacon and red pepper over top of the dough, and sprinkle with the remaining ½ cup of grated cheese. Let sit while you preheat the oven to 400°F.
  3. Make six 3-inch balls of crumpled tinfoil and lightly grease them with olive oil. Press the balls into the dough in 6 places to make small wells. Transfer to the oven and bake until lightly golden, 15 minutes. Take the flatbread out of the oven and discard the tinfoil balls. Crack an egg into each well and season with flaky sea salt. Return to the oven and bake until the eggs have just set, but the yolks are still runny, 8 to 10 minutes.
  4. Remove from the oven and brush with olive oil. Cut into squares and garnish with chopped parsley and thyme, then serve.

#3 Go braided. You’ll impress any dessert-lover with a braided crust. Bon Appetit shows us how!
