Cheese And Vegetable Sandwichsource: Jennifer

I’ve been wanting to try this recipe for a Cheese And Vegetable Sandwich for several months. The problem is,  every time I get a green pepper in the house, it gets used within hours for a stir fry or Sloppy Joes. Yesterday, my husband purchasing two peppers instead of one, so today I finally got to try out this easy recipe from the Vegetarian Express Lane Cookbook.

As usual, I made a couple of changes to the ingredient list. I only had American cheese, so that is what I used. Also, since pita was the freshest bread in the fridge, that also got added to the mix. I think the original ingredients would probably be better for this dish than my alternates.

Nonetheless, even with my substitutions, the sandwich came out nice and I enjoyed eating it.

Will I add the Cheese And Vegetable Sandwich to my regular rotation of recipes? I’m not sure.  Though I definitely enjoyed my meal, combining cooked green peppers and onions with cheese is a new taste for me and might take some getting used to.

Cheese And Vegetable Sandwich

2 large green or red peppers

2-3 tablespoons olive oil

1 red onion

Hot pepper sauce (optional)

Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste

4 large sandwich buns

1/4 – 1/2 pound Havarti or Cheddar cheese

Core and slice peppers. Heat oil in a wide skillet and add peppers. Cook over medium heat as you prepare the onion. Slice onion about 1/8 inch thick and add to the skillet. Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until vegetables are limp and beginning to brown. Season with hot pepper sauce (if using), salt and pepper.

Split sandwich buns in half horizontally. Divide cheese among bottom halves of buns. Top with some vegetable mixture.  Close up sandwiches, cut in half and serve.

Optional: Though not in the original recipes, vegetables, such as lettuce, tomatoes, cucumbers and sprouts can be added for additional crunch.

Serves 4
