Warmer weather means less cranking up the oven and we’ve been enjoying cold sammies (despite my hating that word, I’ve taken to using that Racheal Ray-ism) for dinner around here. This sandwich was inspired by a Denny’s sandwich Thom used to love. It’s currently on MY favorite summer meal list.
It’s basically a grilled cheese jacked up with some veggies but cutting it on the diagonal makes it all fancy and stuff. Really, try it.
The Denny’s Sandwich
For one sandwich gather:
3 slices wheat bread
olive oil (for toasting)
2 slices White American Cheese (we’ve been using Provolone lately)
Tomato slices ( thin! )
Cucumber slices ( thin! )
S & P
Toothpicks or Skewers
Heat a griddle or fry pan over medium heat. Spray bottoms of bread with olive oil and place in pan. Now spray the tops. Toast until golden. Add cheese slices to tops of two slices. Continue toasting until melty.
Remove bread from pan and assemble: Lay one cheese-topped slice on bottom (cheese side up). Slather with mayo.Top with cucumber and tomato. Salt and pepper to taste. Top with bread slice (the one that doesn’t have cheese on it) and slather on some more mayo. Add another layer of cucumber and tomato with salt & pepper. Finally, top with the third slice of bread with cheese. Cut on the diagonal twice creating four triangles. Secure with toothpicks or skewers and enjoy!
If you love the Denny’s sandwich, you might enjoy The Everything Bagel sammie, too. Summer-time friendly and super tasty!
So tell me: what are you eating now that it’s warmer?
