Grilled Eggplant, Zucchini and Mushroom Sandwich #SundaySupper

Grilled Eggplant, Zucchini and Mushroom Sandwich

The first time I made my husband a veggie sandwich I was a little apprehensive. But that quickly changed once he declared it one of the best sandwiches he’s ever had. You see he loves sandwiches of all kinds especially meat laden ones with lots of extra goodies, so this was a fairly big compliment. Anyway, I have made this sandwich many ways, one of my favorites is this combo and the other is an eggplant variation which I have posted before. If you decide to make this, have fun choosing the veggies, cheese options, and bread type.

The beauty is that you can grill or roast your favorite combo of veggies all at the same time. During the summer we grill to keep the heat out of the house. The trick to have evenly cooked veggies is to sear your vegetables over high heat, then move the faster cooking veggies to the cooler part of the grill as the others finish up.

It’s a Sunday Supper post again. And this time it’s all about sandwiches, just in time for the month of August which happens to be National Sandwich Month! Please be sure and check the links below to see what everyone else in the Sunday Supper club has brought to the table. Many thanks to our event manager, Em Beitel of Life Tastes Good. Thank you Em!

Mysavoryspoon was first started in 2010 as a way to journal recipes that I had collected from cookbooks, magazines, family and friends. Most everything was savory, using legumes and whole grains. Along the way I discovered a love for baking. Now a couple times a month you might see some type of sweet pie or treat.

  6. Your sandwich does look and sound yummy! How lovely to grill your veggies outside...Bit of a challenge living in an apartment. (Maybe when and if we move to Colorado.) Anyway, the husband test is always the ultimate test, isn't it?
