I may have a food blog, but that doesn’t always mean I have time to plan my family’s meals or make elaborate meals for them. Actually, I probably cooked more complex and complete meals before I started blogging. Blogging, when you do everything yourself, takes about 60 hours a week… ok, some of that is ‘talking’ with blog friends or cruising Pinterest. However, it is time consuming.

Also, when I planned my own weekly menu and cooked more elaborate meals, my boys will young and didn’t have activities. Nowadays, they have a lot going on. Between the two of them, we have something extra almost every day. Between that, my husband’s busy schedule and my blog and volunteer work, some day’s it’s all I can do to make grilled cheese or peanut butter and jelly sandwiches!

When I got the opportunity to work with eMeals, I was super excited, as was my husband!

Baked Focaccia Turkey Sandwich

  1. You’ll receive a weekly meal plan basic on the Plan you choose. I chose ‘Classic’.
  2. This meal plan has seven days of meals.
  3. It also gives your exact ingredients for the meal.
  4. As well, it gives you easy-to-follow instructions. Even if you’re not a cook, these instructions are direct, simple and very easy to follow.
  5. You’ll also receive side items to go with the entrée. Every side I’ve received has been super simple, nutritious and very easy to make or assemble.
  6. You’ll also receive ingredient list for the sides.
  7. Most of the sides require little to no cooking.


Baked Focaccia Turkey SandwichFor me, the very best part is the grocery list. Along with your Meal Plan, you’ll receive very simple grocery list. It’s broken down by meals so if you’re not going to prepare that meal just cross if off your list. You also have pantry staples listed. Check your pantry and if you already are fully stocked with that item, simply cross it of your list.

One of my first Meal Plans included a Baked Focaccia Sandwich served with chips and grapes. I improvised a little with the sandwich using only turkey instead of turkey and ham. My boys like turkey much more than ham. I also used Muenster cheese instead of provolone because that’s what I had in stock.

This is a great tasting, easy to put together and took minutes to prepare.

Turkey Sandwich ingredients

Pesto is the key to making this sandwich special.

Baked Focaccia Turkey Sandwich

I made individual sandwiches for my family.
You could easily make one large sandwich if you like.
Spread the pesto on both sides.

Turkey Cheese Sandwich

Next, you’ll want to layer on the meat and cheese.
Sliced cheese would work better, actually, but, like I said,
I used what I had and what I had was grated Muenster.
If you don’t follow a recipe to the letter, it’s okay.
Make it your own, leave off or change what your family doesn’t like.

And, there she is. It was very tasty!
