Chopped Cheese Sandwich with Bell Peppers
It's hard to resist a good gourmet sandwich, but what precisely makes a sandwich "gourmet"? Well, for us, it needs to satisfy a few criteria. Firstly, the bread needs to be soft, tender, and delicious. Secondly, it should have something creamy like melted cheese or a good sauce. Thirdly, it should have something fresh and colorful, like vegetables, and last but not least, a delicious protein to elevate the dish. This Chopped Cheese Sandwich with Bell Peppers checks all those boxes, and it's quick and straightforward to make. It's the ideal recipe for picnics and barbecues during the summer and perfect for hosting.

What is in this Chopped Cheese Sandwich

So what goes into a delicious sandwich like this Chopped Cheese with Bell Peppers? Here are the main four ingredients:

Beef patty - choose your favorite beef patty; we choose a delicious local Sarajevska pleskavica Z'Dežele, which is already seasoned and made with 100% beef. 

Bread —Good, soft sandwich bread is essential. You can make your own or make these hot dog buns from scratch

Vegetables - we chose colorful bell peppers because they add color, texture, and lightness to the dish. The onion caramelizes and makes this dish unique.

Cheese - choose a type of cheese that melts well. We always opt for thin Mozzarella slices.

  • preparation

    Heat your gas grill or fire up the grill to get the grill temperature to about 250 °C or 480 °F. When the grill is hot, clean the rack with a long brush. Remove the meat from the fridge for at least 30 minutes before grilling. We will need a cast iron griddle or cast iron pan for the grilling. If you don't have a grill, you can make them on the stove on a very high heat, too.

  • bread

    Cut the sandwich bread lengthwise. Add butter to the griddle and toast the bread on each side for about a minute or until golden. Set aside until needed.

  • Beef patty

    Pour oil onto the griddle and add the beef patties. Grill on one side for 2 minutes, then turn and chop with a grill spatula (turner). Grill for another 2 - 3 minutes.

  • add the veggies

    Clean the peppers and cut into thin slices. Peel the onion and cut it into thin slices. Pour oil into a griddle, add the vegetables and grill for 3 - 4 minutes. Season with white wine vinegar and salt and toss to combine. Divide the veggies into four parts on the griddle. Add one chopped beef patty onto each chunch of vegetables. Add two slices of Mozarella cheese on top to cover the meat and vegetables and grill until the cheese melts.

  • Sandwich

    Add the prepared vegetable and meat filling into the sandwich bread and serve warm.
