Simple sandwich is a hit

This is what I came up with for last nights supper . Its a yummy sandwich I created. It has this really great bread called Herbed Focaccia . I added caramelized onions, then took Virginia Ham , Roast Turkey and Sharp Cheddar, I then grilled it with some EVOO (extra virgin olive oil ) and served with roasted brussel sprouts . The Family loved it and just couldn't say enough :)
here's the recipe for the bread :
Herbed Focaccia Bread:
1 C. water
1/4 C. olive oil
1 t. salt
1 T. sugar
2 t. (total) mixed herbs (rosemary, oregano, basil)
3 C. flour
1 scant T. yeast

-Additional olive oil & herbs, kosher salt for toppings
Use bread machine dough cycle per machine instructions.
After the cycle is finished, shape dough into a flat, rough circle on an oiled (pam) baking sheet (may sprinkle baking sheet with cornmeal). Lightly coat top of focaccia with olive oil. Push your fingertips into the top, creating craters. Sprinkle top with kosher salt & additional herbs. Cover with clean/dry dish towel & let rise 30 -40 minutes. Oven at 375 degrees and bake for 20 to 25 minutes. Keep a close eye on this, every oven is different. Cool on a large wire rack.
Take is from me all you have to do is find wonderful breads at your local super market and try them out .
Sandwiches are all the rave these days and if you have a Panini Grill all the better but if not just use your toaster oven BUT make sure you use a small piece of foil to catch the drippings as not to start a fire.
until we meet again ... "Let them eat cake !" and maybe even a sandwich too :)
