Grilled Vegetable Sandwiches

Grilled Vegetable Sandwiches

By Donuts, Dresses and Dirt

I was lucky enough to recently receive an assortment of breads from Cobblestone Bread Co., and I knew just what I wanted to make my first "summer sandwich" with.

These mini grinder rolls are perfect for grilled sandwiches - they're sturdy enough to hold up to a run over the grill, as well as a pile of toppings. And they're sized just right for an individual serving, so I can pull out as many or few as I need.

You can follow the recipe below, but feel free to use it more as a guideline - it's summer after all; who wants rules?


  • 1 yellow squash, trimmed and sliced lengthwise into 3-4 thick slices

  • 1 red onion, ends trimmed and cut into 3-4 thick "rings" (see note below for grilling onions)

  • 1 orange pepper, trimmed, halved, seeds and ribs removed

  • fresh mozzarella, sliced

  • fresh basil, cut in "chiffonade"

  • red leaf lettuce leaf

  • 2 Cobblestone Bread Co. Wheat Grinder Rolls

  • extra virgin olive oil


  1. Pre-heat grill; line a baking sheet with parchment paper or tin foil. Place vegetables on your prepared baking sheet; brush both sides with olive oil and season generously with salt and pepper.

  2. Grill vegetables, turning occasionally, till tender and charred - about 5-7 minutes for the squash, 8-10 minutes for the pepper and 12-15 minutes for the onion rings. Return vegetables to your baking sheet.

  3. While veggies are grilling slice the rolls in half; brush each half with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Place, cut sides down, on the grill - remove when golden brown.

  4. Assemble your sandwiches: place a lettuce leaf on one half of each roll, followed by the mozzarella slices, veggies and basil. Top with the remaining halves of the rolls and serve.

NOTE: to grill onions without the rings falling through the grates, skewer the "rings" as shown, using metal or wooden skewers (if using wooden skewers, soak in water for a bit to prevent them from scorching on the grill).
