Grilled Vegetable Focaccia

Grilled Vegetable Focaccia, originally uploaded by Lakenvelder.

Focaccia is a good first bread to make because it is very easy. I baked up a loaf for the sandwich pictured or you can make any type of sandwich with it. You can also brush with olive oil and bake on low oven until crispy for crakers or croƻtons. Havarti melts nicely and add a wonderful creaminess to this grilled sandwich. I used a vegetable Havarti in this sandwich.

2 teaspoons brown sugar
