Focaccia Florentine
  • 3 Tablespoon olice oil
  • 2 − 10 Ounce pkg. frozen chopped spinach, thawed/squeezed dry
  • 3 Ounces Canadian bacon, diced
  • 1¼ Teaspoon salt
  • 3 Cup all−purpose flour

  4. until very warm (125−130 degrees). Gradually beat water mixture into flour
  5. mixture. Beat in 1½ cups flour with wooden spoon, ½ cup at a time, to

  14. Bake in 400 oven for 20 to 25 minutes, until lightly browned. Cut into 12
  15. pieces. Serve warm.
