  • Yield: 4 servings (serving size: 1 wedge)


  • 3/4 cup broccoli florets
  • 1/4 cup (2 ounces) tub-style light cream cheese
  • 2 tablespoons fat-free Italian dressing
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried Italian seasoning
  • 6 ounces thinly sliced smoked turkey breast
  • 1/3 cup chopped bottled roasted red bell peppers

Steam broccoli, covered, 5 minutes or until crisp-tender.

While the broccoli cooks, combine cream cheese, dressing, and Italian seasoning in a bowl.

Combine broccoli, cream cheese mixture, turkey, and bell peppers in a medium nonstick skillet; cook turkey mixture over medium-high heat until thoroughly heated, stirring frequently.

Preheat broiler.

Slice focaccia in half horizontally; place halves, cut sides up, on a baking sheet. Broil 1 minute or until toasted. Spread turkey mixture evenly over bottom half of focaccia; top with remaining focaccia half. Cut into 4 wedges.
