Preheat oven to 375°F and slice focaccia into two equal slabs.

Sprinkle grated Cabot Vermont Sharp Cheddar cheese on one of the focaccia slabs. Use as little or as much as you need to get the coverage you desire between the slices of focaccia. If using additional ingredients such as crumbled bacon, pesto and/or sun-dried tomatoes, add them as well. Top with the other slab of focaccia.

Place a heavy-bottomed pan directly on top of the focaccia to weigh it down. Bake at 375°F for about 8 minutes.

When done, slice into 9 large sandwiches. Alternately, you can cut them into small pieces to serve as appetizers at a party.

  • 1 large piece of focaccia, one that will fit snugly on an 18×13-inch baking sheet

  • Crumbled bacon, pesto, sun-dried tomatoes, or anything you’d put in a regular grilled cheese


  1. PREHEAT oven to 375°F. Slice the focaccia so that you have two equal slabs. Place one half of focaccia on lightly oiled sheet pan.

  2. SPRINKLE your preferred grated cheese for as little or as much coverage as you’d like on the focaccia half and then top with other half.

  3. WEIGHT the whole thing down with a heavy-bottomed, oven proof pan—that’s right, put a pan right on top of the focaccia—and bake at 375°F for about 8 minutes.

  4. SLICE into 9 large sandwiches, or as small as you’d like to serve at a party.
