This is a great sandwich recipe! Built on sliced whole wheat french bread or a substantial crusty roll… grilled onions, peppers and mushrooms are stacked high, then topped with cold tomatoes, olives, cheese and lettuce. For those who want to live a little… add a bit of ranch dressing and wow! Definitely worth the effort!
1 tsp olive oil
1 tsp dried basil
1 clove garlic
About a dozen mushrooms, sliced
1 red onion, sliced
1 green pepper, sliced
Black olives, sliced
1 tomato sliced
swiss or provolone cheese (optional)
ranch dressing (optional)
1 loaf whole wheat french bread or some w/w rolls
salt & pepper to taste
SAUTE: Slice onion, green pepper and mushrooms and saute in olive oil and basil & garlic until onion is just translucent.
FINISH: Slice french bread in sandwich sections . Spread a little ranch dressing on the bottom slice (optional) and top with some sauteed vegies, then some olives, sliced tomatoes, salt & pepper to taste, sliced cheese and lettuce. Add top layer of bread and serve.
Note: The sauteed veggies can be a bit moist, so do not use regular bread with this sandwich or the vegies will make the bread rather soggie. Whole grain french bread or rolls are substantial enough to hold up just right.
