  • Make the focaccia bread first.

For the Roasted Peppers

  • To roast the peppers , preheat the broiler and line a sheet pan with parchment paper, or grease it lightly.
  • Cut peppers in half , lengthwise, and remove the seeds and stems.
  • Place peppers cut side down on the sheet pan.
  • Broil for about 15 to 20 minutes.
  • Place the peppers in a bowl and cover with plastic wrap.
  • Peel when cooled.

For the Herbed Goat Cheese Spread

  • In a small bowl combine all of the ingredients except for the goat cheese , mix well.
  • Coat the goat cheese with the mixture , press the mixture into the cheese with a fork and combine well.
  • Cover it with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 1 hour. If you have the time , prepare this a day ahead; the longer it sits, the better it tastes.


  • Assembling the Sandwiches:
  • Spread the herbed goat cheese on two squared slices of focaccia.
  • Layer the portobello mushrooms on one slice, then follow up with the roasted pepper.
  • Cover with a slice of focaccia, and serve.

    just perfect! I’ve had portobello with grilled parmesan polenta few days ago and I just love these mushrooms!

    I’m not a sandwich person, however, foccacia and the peppers with the cheese sound idea. I’d like this one as a little appetizer!! Nicely done!!

    I’ve been waiting patiently for this recipe (ok not really, everytime I got on I was looking to see if you posted it yet!) and they were worth the wait! Looks amazing!

    What a lovely lunch, I love all those flavors. I haven’t made foccacia bread in a long time, this is a great reason to make some again.

    This looks really yummy. Focaccia sandwiches are one of my favorite things to eat.. bell peppers and goat cheese? how can you go wrong 🙂

    Kate, goat cheese with rrpepper is divine. Trust you to top it off with something so scrumptious and add focaccia bread, too. Samwich, love it!

  8. Evelyne@CheapEthnicEatz

    Love roasted red peppers, they are so good and sweet. With the goat cheese the combo is amazing in your sandwich. OK I feel silly asking, what is EVOO?
