Sundried Tomato Cheddar Spinach Focaccia Party Sandwich



25 min

A simple but super flavorful family-style focaccia sandwich that is just as good as a weeknight dinner as it is served up for a fun party platter! The bread is cut in half horizontally then dressed with both a sundried tomato aioli AND pesto sauce paired with unexpected cheddar cheese for a modern update on a Caprese sandwich.

2 - 3 Sundried tomatoes

½ cup mayo

12 cloves roasted garlic

Pickled Red onion juice

Large rectangular shaped focaccia bread

2 cups fresh Baby spinach

2 - 3 jarred roasted red peppers, cut into strips (I like Mezzetta)

8 oz Unexpected Cheddar (aged white cheddar from Trader Joe's but you can use any white cheddar or your favorite mozzarella)

¼ cup Pickled red onions

½ cup Pesto sauce

¼ cup Parmesan cheese

Sea Salt


Olive oil


Food processer

sheet pan

Parchment paper


Step 1

Grab the food processor and toss in the sundried tomatoes, the mayo, roasted garlic, drizzle of rosemary olive oil, sea salt, and a splash of the pickled red onion juice from the jar. Process until smooth and creamy.

Step 2

Preheat your oven to 375 degrees and prepare a sheet pan with a piece of parchment paper.

Step 3

Cut the focaccia bread in half and spread one half with the store-bought pesto and the other half with the sundried tomato aioli.

Step 4

Top the base piece with the spinach, roasted red peppers, aged cheddar, pickled red onions, and sea salt/pepper. Lightly sprinkle the top side of bread with the parmesan cheese.

Step 5

Bake at 375 for 20-30 minutes or until the cheese is melty and the bread is lightly crispy.

Step 6

Cut into squares on a large wood cutting block and serve immediately.
