slices (1/2 inch) red onion
Cooking spray

  • 1 Heat gas or charcoal grill. In small bowl, mix mayonnaise spread ingredients. Refrigerate. With small metal spoon, scrape underside of mushroom caps to remove dark gills.

  • 3 Meanwhile, cut focaccia in half horizontally to form 2 rounds. Spread mayonnaise spread evenly on cut side of bottom half.
  • 4 Slice mushrooms; arrange over mayonnaise spread. Cut bell peppers into thin strips; layer over mushrooms. Separate onion slices into rings; place over peppers. Top with tomato and cheese slices. Cover with top half of focaccia.
  • 5 If desired, wrap sandwich in foil; place on grill. Cook 1 to 2 minutes or until cheese is melted. To serve, cut into 6 wedges.
