Focaccia Hero Sandwich

Here’s one very nice sandwich recipe using focaccia bread.  I love it because of the array of flavors in one easy-to-make sandwich.  I hope you’ll like it, too.


1 garlic clove, crushed

2 tbsp butter

1 large piece focaccia (enough for 4)

16 slices hot Italian salami or 4 slices ham

2 tomatoes, sliced

1 red onion, thinly sliced

1 red bell pepper, seeded and sliced

4 pinches fresh oregano

4 slices Jalsberg cheese (any mild Swiss cheese can be used as a substitute)

  • Mince garlic and mix it with the softened butter.
  • Cut focaccia into 4 equal pieces.  Slice each piece horizontally and brush with butter mixture.
  • Divide remaining ingredients equally on half of focaccia pieces ending with the cheese
  • Place layered focaccia along with the reserved buttered focaccia pieces in a preheated broiler/ oven toaster until cheese is melted and bread is brown.
  • Replace top halves and serve warm.

Grilled Ham and Cheese Sandwich

Here’s a fast and easy sandwich you can make from ham and cheese that has quite an extraordinary rich flavor.


8 slices of French Bread

4 slices of ham

4 slices of Swiss cheese

Butter Dijon mustard

Freshly ground black pepper

1.  Spread bread generously with butter, then spread a little mustard on 4 slices and top with ham, cheese, black pepper to taste.

2.    Press sandwiches together firmly and trim crust, if you like.  Cut into two triangles or leave whole.

3.  Melt a generous amount of butter in a skillet over medium heat.  Add sandwiches and cook for 3-4 minutes on each side or until golden.  Drain on paper towels and serve hot.


If you like, the sandwiches can be dipped into a mixture of 2 beaten eggs and ½ cup  (125 ml) milk before frying
