Recipe Round Up ~ Sandwiches

Italian Grilled Cheese Sandwich with Sauteed Zucchini

I saw Rachel Ray make something similar to this and I didn’t write down the ingredients but played it by ear to recreate something similar.


For the sandwich I used fresh mozzarella, tomatoes and basil. Any bread you like will probably be fine. I used a white farmers bread.  I cut the crusts off. I layered cheese, fresh tomatoes and fresh basil on a slice of bread then topped it with another slice. I heated a large frying pan with olive oil dipped each sandwich in the egg and milk mixture and then set the egg coated sandwich in the pan.


When browned on one side I flipped it over and browned the other side. Rachel Ray served something similar (she used sun-dried tomatoes and cut her bread in circles) and served it with some sauteed zucchini. Here’s how I made my zucchini.


Cut zucchini, drop into pan heated with olive oil. Salt and pepper well. Cut a bunch of scallions and add them to the zucchini. Grate or press a couple cloves of garlic over the zucchini. When the zucchini is done add some grated Parmesan on top. (I think Rachel Ray added some chopped parsley to the dish also).

Enjoy! For more Sandwich recipes head over to Dorothy’s at Field Stone Cottage.

Photobucket is holding all my photos from 2007-2015 hostage and they have blacked them all out. I’m slowly working at restoring my posts without their help. Such a tiresome bother!

  1. I may have to try that zuccini recipe once Dad’s garden veggies come in! I’m not a fan of zuccini or squash so when I get free bounty I’m in a quandry what to do with them!

    looks great! thanks.

  2. Yummy!! I am going to try this. I love sauteed zucchini and yellow summer squash which looks like yellow zucchini. I do without the grated cheese though. thanks for the recipe. MB

  3. My mouth is just watering. I love these kind of sandwiches, they’re along the lines of Mone Cristo’s, but never think to make them. I’m definitely going to do some on the weekend.

  4. Those sandwiches look soooo delicious! But how did you flip those over without the stuffing falling out? Well, I think I’m going to try this, I’ll find out for myself! Yummy.

  5. This looks yummy. Nigella Lawson has a similar recipe in one of her books and it was very good. I am going to try your version this weekend. Great pics by the way.

  6. Hi,
    I found your blog through Sandy at reluctant entertainers. This recipe looks amazing!!! I can’t wait to continue to browse.

    I too live in Washington. SW washington, in Woodland, which is about 30 minutes from Portland.

  7. My favorite grilled cheese is one w/ fresh mozz, pesto, & tomato. I don’t even eat tomato on anything else.

    I like your idea to cut the crusts off… and I may try the egg mixture rather than my usual olive oil or butter!
