Directions

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

Cut the top off the foccacia and hollow out the bread inside. Tear the top of the foccacia and the inside bread into 1-inch pieces and save for the egg mixture. Brush the inside of the foccacia with the Meyer lemon olive oil. Place on a baking sheet and toast for 10 minutes.

Meanwhile, in a large bowl, whisk the eggs. Add the basil, cheese, salt, pepper, and milk. Whisk lightly. Stir in up to 4 cups of the bread pieces.

Carefully pour the egg mixture into the toasted foccacia bottom. Return to the oven and bake until the eggs have cooked, about 35 to 40 minutes.

Cut the baked foccacia into 6 to 8 pieces and serve immediately.

    This is a huge hit! Made it for our special Sunday breakfast. Husband doesn't like basil or parmesan, so I eliminated them and simply put in some chopped ham. Also used ciabatta. I see infinite possibilities for this presentation. Bacon, leeks, cheddar, gruyere, pancetta, veggies and all different kinds of breads. Next time think I'll try individual rolls. Absolutely love it.

    They didnt have focaccia bread at the store but I used Italian bread and I'm glad I did! It came out pretty good. Moist and everything. Not too dry, not too moist, it was just right! Not my fav. It was savory but I probably won't repeat. My guests enjoyed it though. : it felt like something was missing though. Maybe I'll add little bits of pancetta and try out how that tastes.
