“Roasted herbed focaccia bread with a blend of melted Cheddar and pepperjack cheese sandwiched with roasted red peppers. You will need time to roast the red pepper and then it will need time to cool and then make the sandwich. Have tasted with red peppers from the jar and it tastes nothing like this one.”
