1 pkg Schneiders® Smoked Maple Ham

8 slices Schneiders® Butchers Cut Double Smoked Bacon, cooked per package instructions

1 large heirloom tomato, cored, thinly sliced

170 g Tre Stelle® deluxe Mozzarella, thinly sliced

8 slices focaccia bread

1/3 cup basil pesto

½ cup unsalted butter, softened

Salt and pepper


Lay out bread and spread pesto evenly onto all slices.

Divide ham evenly and place over 4 pieces of bread.

Add 2 slices of bacon over ham, then lay tomato slices to cover bacon. Season with salt and pepper.

Layer mozzarella over the tomatoes, then top with remaining slices of bread.

Lightly butter the top half of each sandwich. Place a heavy bottom pan on medium-low heat and place 2 sandwiches, butter side

down, into the pan. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes until golden brown.

While cooking, lightly butter the top-facing slices of bread. Flip sandwiches and fry the other side until golden.

Repeat with remaining sandwiches.

Tips (not mandatory): Use leftover mozzarella to top your favourite homemade pizza or flatbread.

Kick-up the flavour by replacing the pesto with spicy aioli.
