Grilled Sandwich with oven roasted tomatoes, bell pepper & Cucumber

Sandwiches on the go is anytime convenient for me : be it at work or even lazy brunch on weekdays, when you just cook for yourself. Given that, I have hardly posted any sandwich recipes on my blog, although I make some for myself, quite often with brown bread. Today’s dish is a super delicious and utterly simple Grilled Sandwich with oven roasted tomatoes, bell pepper & Cucumber : my favourite combo. 

Didn’t even use green chutney spread as the herbed tomatoes added to the aroma with its Italian flavours, and was perfect for a weekday lunch along with a bowl of fresh salad. Let’s get on to the dish now. I have used white bread here, but you can make this with any kind of bread. Feel free to play around the stuffing too – cheese /mayo/lettuce etc to make it more attractive to kids.

Prep time : 10 mins
Grill time + oven time : 20 mins
Serves : 2
Difficulty level : Easy

Ingredients:
  • White bread – 8 slices
  • Butter – 1 TBSP – melted
  • Olive oil -  1 TBSP
  • Firm, ripe tomatoes – 2 nos
  • Bell pepper – 1 no
  • Cucumber – 1 no (medium)
  • Salt – to taste
  • Italian seasoning mix (oregano + basil + chilli flakes) – 2 tsp
  • Crushed black pepper – ½ tsp
  • White pepper powder – ¼ tsp

Method:
1) Trim tomatoes. Cut into thick slices. Pre heat oven to 150 deg C and line a baking tray with foil, slightly grease. Place the tomato slices on it, sprinkle olive oil, salt and Italian seasoning and grill for 8 – 10 mins till they shrivel and they are slightly roasted. Keep aside.
2) Trim and chop cucumber and bell pepper into roundels.
Meanwhile, heat a grill / sandwich maker. Slather butter on both sides. On one slice, place a few slices of grilled tomatoes, cucumber and bell pepper rings. Sprinkle white and black pepper powder. Add Italian seasoning again if you wish.
3) Close with another slice. Grill for 1-2 mins on both sides till done.Repeat for remaining slices.
4) Cut up and serve hot with any salad / fresh fruit for breakfast or brunch.
