Grill Works Sandwich

Grilling time! This week we will be doing a couple recipes that you can do on the grill!


Total: 16 min
Cook: 10 min
Yields: 1 sandwich


1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1/4 cup roughly chopped red bell pepper
1/2 portobello mushroom cap, sliced
1/4 medium red onion, sliced
1 cloves garlic, chopped
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
3 thin slices Black Forest ham, or any meat of your choice
1 slice each, provolone, Swiss, and Jack
2 slices 7-grain bread (we used Parmesan French bread)
** We had fun with this recipe and the kids picked different ingredients that they each wanted on their sandwiches and we grilled them all and served with soup of everyone’s choice.


Serving suggestion: A bowl of tomato soup

Preheat an electric sandwich grill or press. or you can grill this on your gas grill like we did. If using a gas grill just lightly butter both pieces of bread on one side.

Heat the oil in a medium skillet over high heat. Add the bell pepper, mushroom, onion, and garlic and season with salt and pepper. Cook the vegetables, stirring occasionally, until lightly browned and soft, about 6 minutes. Transfer the mixture to a bowl. Add the ham to the skillet and cook, turning once, until lightly browned, about 1 minute.

Layer the vegetable mixture, ham, and cheese between the two slices of bread. Put the sandwich in the grill and grill until hot and crispy, about 4 minutes. (Alternately, grill on a cast iron grill pan, weighed-down with a foil-wrapped brick or other heavy item.)

Cut the sandwich in 1/2 and serve immediately.
