Sometimes you need a meal that isn’t completely saturated with calories, grease, and meat. I know the cheese and butter doesn’t go along with that idea so much. But a grilled sandwich is only good with those two things. Anything less wouldn’t be worth the trouble šŸ™‚


Portabella, Onion, and Pepper Sandwiches

  • 2 portabella mushrooms
  • 1 onion, sliced thinly
  • 1 green pepper, sliced thinly
  • 1 garlic clove, microplaned
  • Olive oil
  • 8 slices of good bread
  • Butter
  • Cheese slices (I used montery jack)
  • 2 tbsp mayo
  • 2 tsp prepared horseradish
  • 1 tsp garlic, microplaned
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • Pepper

Saute mushrooms, onion, green pepper and garlic in olive oil until the vegetables are tender. In another skillet, melt butter. Dip one side of each bread slice in the melted butter. Arrange sandwiches in this order: bread slice (butter side down), mushroom mixture, cheese slices, bread slice (butter side up). Grill in buttery skillet until golden brown on each side. Combine the mayo, horseradish, garlic, salt and pepper together for the aioli. Spread desired amount of aioli onto sandwich. Makes 4 sandwiches.
