Pesto focaccia breakfast sandwich

This recipe is inspired by a sandwich I had at The Hoot in Maine. It is a delicious, farm to table spot and their breakfast sandwiches are truly unmatched. This one has a housemade focaccia bread, pesto, tomato, bacon, eggs and avocado. Truly so good.

One note: You can use store bought focaccia for this, or make your own. My goto homemade focaccia recipe is Bon Appetits No Knead recipe.
