Open faced cheese sandwiches with peppers, tomato and onion. This is a favorite at our Campground. We used to call them Gay Headers! My kids ask for it at home as well.

  • Place the slices of bread on a baking sheet, and place under the broiler. Broil for about 2 minutes, just until lightly toasted. Remove from the oven, and turn the bread untoasted side up. Place a handful of the vegetable mixture on top of each slice. Drizzle with a bit of olive oil, then top with a slice of cheese.

  • Return the bread slices to the broiler, and cook until the cheese is melted. Serve immediately.

I would suggest if you like your peppers and onions more done to saute them a little first and then do the broiling. Once the cheese is melted the veggies are still pretty raw. I don't mind them too much this way and the sandwich was really delicious...just prefer them a little more cooked. I also added a little fresh parsley and salt and pepper. Used a hoagie roll b/c plain white bread just seemed a little plain. Can't wait to try again! Read More

Good recipe - But White Bread? I used a multigrain bread and it provided a fuller flavour and a better health advantage. Read More

Yum yum yum. For more tender veggies definately saute them (except for the tomato) in the olive oil before putting on the bread. I also upgraded the bread to whole grain and used shredded Motzerella cheese. Smelled SO GOOD and tasted great too. Read More

This was very good! I did saute all the veggies except for the tomatoes beforehand to soften them a little in some olive oil with a clove of minced garlic salt and pepper and then proceeded with the recipe. I also added some pepperjack cheese and that went well with the veggies. Also I had a small baguette to use up so I used that instead of the white bread. All in all a nice quick and tasty sandwich that I would totally make again! Thanks for sharing.:) Read More

This was fantastic! I'm living abroad with a kitchen that has no stove/toaster oven so I briefly stir-fried the vegetables in the olive oil (2-3 minutes) toasted the bread over the stove (watch carefully! I obliterated one piece because I wasn't paying attention) and topped it with finely shredded cheddar cheese. It was a hit with my boyfriend and definitely something I will make again especially considering it took about fifteen minutes from start to finish (and I'm still slow at chopping vegetables).
