Parmesan Tomato Focaccia Sandwich

TheLittleEpicurean-Focaccia-SandwichWhen I was in college, I practically lived off of sandwiches.  My roommates and I got pretty creative with the different sandwiches we would make using the same ingredients.  Over the years I have gotten more adventurous with my sandwich ventures- leaving behind my favorite sourdough and white bread for far more sophisticated ones.

I can never tire of sandwiches.  Be it a simple peanut butter and jelly or a fancy artisanal sandwich handcrafted with only the best local and seasonal harvest- a sandwich always make a great meal (or snack).

Last month, I made this parmesan tomato focaccia for The Chic.  I liked it so much that I made it again.  Instead of serving the bread alone, I decided to make it into a sandwich!   Talk about indulgence.  Focaccia is already good on its own, but its even better when made into a sandwich.  This grilled zucchini, crispy bacon, provolone, pesto and tomato sandwich is a winner!  There are so many flavors going on in this sandwich that I’m not really quite sure what to name it.  Any suggestions?  Any thoughts would be appreciated!

Plate the focaccia sandwich like a restaurant and serve it with a choice of an apple or a couple cookies.  I choose the cookie, assuming its a freshly baked chocolate chip cookie.

Summer may be over but al fresco dining is still thriving here in Los Angeles.  This sandwich is great grilled in a panini press, but it’s also perfect at room temperature– making it a perfect takeaway meal.

    Oh yum! This looks SO.GOOD. And I totally agree about focaccia being even more amazing as a sandwich — it’s like awesomeness x 2! Thanks for sharing :)

      Thanks Stephanie! I’m on a focaccia roll and I’m thinking focaccia bread pudding? focaccia croutons? The possibilities are endless! :)
