This hearty main-dish sandwich starts with a loaf of storebough focaccia bread that's cut in half horizontally and filled with layers of deli ham, turkey, cheese and pesto. Serve with fresh fruit and oven-baked fries for a complete meal.
1 large deli-loaf focaccia or ciabatta bread
1 (3.5-ounce) jar prepared pesto sauce
1/2 pound thinly sliced Black Forest ham
1/2 pound thinly sliced roasted turkey breast
6 provolone cheese slices
1/2 small red onion, thinly sliced
How to Make It
Cut bread in half horizontally using a serrated knife. Spread pesto evenly over cut sides. Layer ham and next 3 ingredients evenly over bottom half. Top with remaining bread half. Wrap in aluminum foil.
This is a huge hit with all my boys (college kids and husband). Love it for football games.
I leave out the onion. I agree that additional cooking time is needed to thoroughly heat and melt the cheeses.
A good sandwich, though I suspect it'd be a lot better with an adjustment on the heating. I made the sandwich with refrigerated meat and cheese and after cooking it for the listed 10 minutes, the meat was still cool and the cheese unmelted. As such, I don't think it was as good as it could be. I believe it'd be a 4 star sandwich with this issue fixed. I recommend either letting the meat and cheese warm up to room temperature before baking or increasing the cooking time and checking to ensure the cheese is melted.
My family loved this sandwich and I will make it again. I stuck to the recipe. I think it's good to fix anytime. And for people like me that does not know where to locate the pesto, check with the spaghetti sauces.
