Instead, find the best focaccia in town for these breakfast sandwiches. You'll be glad you did. Focaccia is soft, fluffy, and buttery with large crannies that hug whatever filling you sandwich inside. In this rendition, cheesy scrambled eggs, salty prosciutto, fresh spinach, and parmesan-roasted tomatoes bulk up these satisfying sammies. Keep this recipe close by next time it's a breakfast-for-dinner kind of night. Ingredients 18 oz. focaccia loaf, halved horizontally 2 small beefsteak tomatoes, sliced into 1/4-in.-thick rounds 1/3 cup olive oil 4 tbsp. grated pecorino Romano or Parmesan cheese, divided 9 large eggs 1/4 cup whole milk 1 tsp. kosher salt, plus more for tomatoes 1/4 tsp. freshly ground black pepper, plus more for tomatoes 2 Tbsp. unsalted butter 5 oz. thinly sliced prosciutto 2 cups packed baby spinach Directions Preheat broiler with oven rack 6 inches from heat. Place focaccia, cut side up, and tomatoes on a baking sheet. Brush both with oil. Sprinkle tomatoes with salt and pepper and 2 tablespoons cheese. Broil until focaccia is golden and cheese has melted, 3 to 5 minutes. Whisk eggs, milk, salt, pepper, and remaining 2 tablespoons cheese in a bowl until smooth. Melt butter in a large nonstick or cast-iron skillet over medium-low. Add egg mixture; cook, stirring gently and constantly, until soft curds form, 3 to 5 minutes. Cut each focaccia half into quarters. Place eggs on bottom focaccia pieces. Top with tomatoes, prosciutto, and spinach. Place focaccia tops on each sandwich.
