Fancy Squash Focaccia




I have a serious squash fetish. By serious, I mean that I have four different varieties squash loitering on my kitchen counter right now waiting to be engaged in some sort of something. It started when I became a squash paparazzi at the farmers market. At first I think my husband was amused, then slightly embarrassed on behalf of the squash, and then finally delighted at the squash-infused food. The most successful of these was a squash foccaccia. For the recipe, I used a recipe from Cooking Light, but used two different squash: a red kuri squash and another fancy red squash whose name I never new (such a one night stand it was). I also roasted the seeds and added them to the top of the focaccia.

And, I am sending this Bread Baking Day—Color hosted by Grain Power. And below, I offer squash porn.

I have a squash bread recipe on my "docket" right now. I have a serius squash fetish myself. And when squash is 1 dollar for a huge one, how can you not take advantage of that?

I like picking out tons of squash even if buying it means sore shoulders from the long walk home. I like roasting the seeds, too and using it on stuff :)

That looks good! I recently tried baking with squash in a yeast based bread and enjoyed it. I like the seeds on top.
