Grilled Cheese Sandwich with Roasted Peppers & Tomatoes


When i got a mail to join the "Take the Real Lunch" product sampling from Sargento. I couldn't resist that. I am a cheese lover, i love anything cheesy, so creating a recipe using the Sargento cheese was a pleasure for me. I accepted the offer, within a week i received a parcel . I got a lunch bag along with three coupons. I got the sargento mozzarella sliced cheese and got into action. The challenge is to create a real lunch recipe.

This summer, Sargento is encouraging people to take a real lunch to savor natural foods and recipes the way they were meant to be enjoyed. Sargento Natural Sliced Cheeses are cut from real block cheese to add delicious flavors to hand-crafted sandwiches. Available in traditional or Ultra Thin cut, Sargento Natural Sliced Cheeses offer the largest variety of fresh-tasting cheeses, including Deli Style Medium Cheddar and Provolone Cheeses, Ultra Thin Swiss Cheese and Natural Blends Cheddar-Mozzarella Cheese.



I made a grilled cheese sandwich recipe which is my all time favorite one. I filled it with sweet roasted peppers and tomatoes. The combination of the sweet peppers and cheese was so good and it was a total hit. It was filling and was perfectly gooey which i love in my grilled cheese sandwiches 

Preparation Time : 3 to 5 mins
Cooking Time: 30 mins for roasting veggies, 5 mins for grilling sandwiches
Makes : 2 sandwiches

Ingredients:


Olive Oil - 1 tblspn
Oregano - 1 tsp
Salt - 1/2 tsp
Ground Black Pepper - 1/2 tsp
Red Bell Pepper - 1 medium size sliced into strips
Green Bell Pepper - 1 medium size sliced into strips
Cherry Tomatoes - 5 cut in half
White Sandwich Bread - 4 slices
Tomato Ketchup - 4 tblspn ( You can use Marinara Sauce )
Mozzarella Cheese Slices - 4
Butter - 2 tblspn

Method:

Preheat the oven to 250 Degree C / 500 Degree F.

Slice both the peppers in long strips. Cut cherry tomatoes in half.

Now Take a baking dish and add oil, oregano, salt and pepper in it. Mix well.

Add the prepared peppers, tomatoes in the oil and toss well.

Put the baking dish in preheated oven for 25 to 30 mins  till the veggies are cooked and slightly charred. Alternatively you can microwave the veggies for 10 mins on high power till it is shrinked and wilted..

Now make the sandwiches. Take both the bread slices and spread 1 tblspn of ketchup on them.

Place a slice of mozzarella cheese on top of the ketchup spreaded side.

Heap half of the roasted peppers and tomatoes on the top cheese.

Now place another slice of mozzarella cheese over the veggies.

Cover with another slice of bread, ketchup spreaded side down.

Melt some butter on a frying pan. Place the sandwich over the butter and cook for a min till they turn golden. Meanwhile put a dollop of butter over the other side of the bread. Flip over and cook on otherside for a min till they turn golden.

Remove the golden sandwich on a cutting board and cut them in half.
Enjoy.

  3. That looks very delicious and for sure also tastes that way. It's always good to have a sandwich with some cheese in it. However, I like the vegetables, too.
