Definitely a five star! Used havarti so my cheese was definitely melted in 15 minutes at 425. The only foccacia the store had was topped with jalapenos, tomatoes, cheese, and mushrooms so it was really an AWESOME lunch. A repeater for sure plus easy, thank you for posting.
This was nummy, easy, and fast! After reading the comments, I put mine in for 15 minutes, not 10, and it could probably use another 5 or 10. The sandwich was heated through, and the bread was crispy, but the cheese wasn't melted. But, I didn't have to wait for it to cool before serving to my kids, either. :) Great recipe, gobbled up by everyone, reminded me of sandwiches I got in fancy downtown delis when I worked there. Thanks for posting!
The pesto sauce adds a nice extra taste to this for a wonderful hot sandwich. After 10 minutes in the oven, mine was not heated through. Next time, I will probably bake it at a lower temperature for a longer period of time.
I'm so glad you posted this! I copied it from the magazine, while I was waiting for a doctor's appt, and I've since made it many times, but I lost my recipe! This is so good, and filling, and a definite man pleaser! (I like it, too!) Thanks for saving my game-day lunch, tomorrow!
This was soooo very good!!!! I made this to go and we enjoyed it at our baseball game. My hubby ate most of it himself!!!!
Gee Whiz - can "gourmet" and "easy" in the same sentence really exist? Yes they can! I ate one of these without grilling it and it was OUTRAGEOUS!!!! It looks so gorgeous too - I almost didn't want to grill it - but when you grill it like a panini - it developes a whole new fantastic flavor! This sandwich is AMAZING no matter which way you choose to prepare it: grilled or not grilled - you just can't go wrong! Thanks for sharing this Kizzi!
