Focaccia Sandwiches

In a hurry for dinner before my cake decorating class, I ran into Earthfare for inspiration. I came home with gorgeous facaccia rolls and immediately got to work. Focaccia is related to pizza dough, but not considered to be the same. It is quite popular in Italy and is usually seasoned with olive oil and sometimes herbs, and may be topped with onion and cheese. I found one recipe which prompted me to create the other two. Duplication might be the biggest form of flattery, but when are we ever satisfied? Here’s to two quick sandwiches that can only be described with full mouths.

Turkey Facaccia

Facaccia Rolls
Deli Turkey
Dijon Mustard
Baby Arugula Greens (Handful)

SLICE the facaccia roll

ASSEMBLE turkey on one half and provolone on the other

TOAST until the cheese has melted completely and has begun to sink into the holes

REMOVE from heat and SPREAD Dijon onto the turkey side. (The oil from the cheese will make spreading difficult)

LOAD with baby arugula, Salt & Pepper


Facaccia Caprese

Facaccia Rolls
Fresh tomatoes, sliced
Fresh mozzarella cheese, sliced
Basil leaves
Tbsp of good pesto (Sold by the jar)
Tbsp Mayonnaise

SLICE the facaccia roll

ASSEMBLE the tomatos on the bottom half

MIX a Tbsp Mayonnaise and a Tbsp Pesto and apply the top half.

PLACE mozzarella slices and basil leaves in the middle, Salt & Pepper.
