Columbia Gorge Sandwich

I originally made this sandwich for a Tears for Fears concert at Maryhill Winery in the Columbia Gorge.

You’ll need the recipe for my basic focaccia dough for this sandwich.

Columbia Gorge Sandwich

For this sandwich, we start with the basic focaccia dough recipe, take it to the next level with toppings baked into the dough. Then ham, cheese, and assorted goodies fill the sandwich.
It can be made a day ahead. Oh and they are messy so bring extra napkins.
