|Using focaccia bread transforms weekday beef sandwiches into a special weekend treat for the whole family.|
Beef up everyday boring sandwiches with easy, home-baked focaccia bread
On weekdays, quick cooking is a must.
But on weekends, many people take a bit more time to make family meals.
This tasty beef sandwich is simple, yet special — because you bake focaccia using refrigerated dough.
Easy Beef Focaccia Sandwiches
1 can (13.8 ounces) refrigerated pizza crust
1 tablespoon olive oil
½ teaspoon garlic powder
½ teaspoon dried basil leaves
¼ cup mayonnaise
2 tablespoons purchased creamy horseradish sauce
4 slices (1 ounce each) provolone cheese
½ sliced cooked roast beef (from the grocer's deli section)
2 medium tomatoes, thinly sliced
1 cup shredded romaine lettuce
Heat oven to 375°F. Spray 15-inch-by-10-inch-by-1-inch pan with cooking spray.
Unroll dough; place in pan. Starting at center, press out dough evenly to edges of pan.
Brush with oil; sprinkle with garlic powder and basil. Bake about 10 minutes or until golden brown. Cool 15 minutes.
Meanwhile, in small bowl, stir together mayonnaise and horseradish sauce.
Cut focaccia crust into eight rectangles. Spread mayonnaise mixture on bottom sides of all rectangles.
On four rectangles, layer cheese, beef, tomatoes and lettuce over mayonnaise mixture. Cover with remaining rectangles, mayonnaise mixture side down. Cut sandwiches in half.
Makes four sandwiches.
