Preheat oven to 375°F and slice focaccia into two equal slabs.
Sprinkle grated Cabot Sharp Cheddar cheese on one of the focaccia slabs. Use as little or as much as you need to get the coverage you desire between the slices of focaccia. If using additional ingredients such as crumbled bacon, pesto and/or sun-dried tomatoes, add them as well. Top with the other slab of focaccia.
Place a heavy-bottomed pan directly on top of the focaccia to weigh it down. Bake at 375°F for about 8 minutes.
When done, slice into 9 large sandwiches. Alternately, you can cut them into small pieces to serve as appetizers at a party.
