A grilled cheese and veggies sandwich is a hot sandwich. Typically prepared by heating grated or sliced cheese and veggies between the slices of bread, on a frying pan, griddle, or sandwich toaster, until the bread turns brown and crispy and the cheese melts. It makes a great anytime snack or light meal. This one is one of my family favorite recipes.
- Wheat Bread Slices 🍞
- (Two slices per sandwich 🥪)
- Mozzarella Cheese 🧀
- Bell Pepper 🫑
- Tomato 🍅
- Onion 🧅
- Green Chili 🌶
- Tomato Ketchup
- Black Pepper Powder
- Pink Salt
- Olive Oil (optional to grease the bread slices)
Place all the ingredients at one place.
Cut the veggies into thin slices or chop them into small pieces.
Toast only one side of the two slices, on a low/medium heat. Here I am creating two sandwiches in one go…
Once the slices turn light brown. We will use one slice as a base and another to top it after layering our veggies-cheese.
Turn the heat to the lowest as it takes time to layer the veggies-cheese. Starting with onions & bell pepper slices.
Topped with grated cheese 🧀
Topped with sweet-n-sour tomato ketchup.
Then the tomato slices and a generous amount of black-pepper and some pink salt.
Again, may add a few onion slices.
Place the other bread slice on top of it (keeping the toasted side inside).
Now gently turn the whole sandwich 🥪 upside down.
Here, both the sandwiches have been turned upside down.
Lightly press the sandwiches as they get toasted (Idea is to bind the layers together with the melting cheese).
Once nice and crispy, bring it on to a chopping board and cut into two pieces (diagonal or vertical or horizontal).
Serve immediately with some extra ketchup.
We may use any bread, veggies, cheeses or sauces of our choice. These sandwiches are very quick and easy to create on a pan or in a sandwich maker. Kids love to layer the sandwich as per their preferences.
