  • About This Recipe

    “After being on a totally fat free diet for several weeks, I went to a restaurant and had a variation on this sandwich. I felt like they used too much fat, so I have cut it down more than they did and renamed the sandwiches. I like my food to look good and taste good. This recipe fits both requirements and is good for you too.”

  • “These sandwiches are definately hefty.You will not miss the calories, I promise.I used smoked turkey in this recipe.All of the veggie flavors were wonderful with the onion roll.I loved the visual appeal and taste.Try it, you will like it!”

  • “Tasty, substantial, attractive, and healthy!I seasoned the veggies with lots of lemon pepper and put more pepper on the cheese after broiling.I used Recipe#281784 as my base. Thanks Mysterygirl for sharing.”

  • “Oh, the flavor, colors and textures of this sandwich are awesome. I used sliced (not diced)veggies and an unaltered, toasted whole wheat bun. I also broiled the tomato and cheese until the cheese melted. I was sure this was going to need at least some mayo, but it didn’t.The veggie juices were all the delicious moisture this sandwich needed. GREAT sandwich, Mysterygirl.”

  • “My mom came over last week to help me take down all the Christmas decorations. This is what I served for lunch. Now this is an awesome sammich. I was able to get some nice unsliced onion rolls from a local bakery (drool) and scooped them out just like you directed. The vegetables had a wonderful flavor after being sauteed in the chicken broth. I used low-fat smoked turkey and smoked cheddar cheese. Served with apple wedges for a filling, healthy, lovely, delicious lunch. Thanks MG, from mom and me. “

  • “I served this to a friend for lunch and we both gave it a definite five stars!! I did use sliced onion buns and just scooped out the bottom for the vegies and put on the turkey, I laid the tomato slice topped by the cheese on the top part of the roll then broiled them. I closed the sandwich after the cheese was melted. This was excellent!! Maybe next time I will try it in a tortilla just for a change. The sauted vegies were wonderful on this sandwich and no dressing was needed. “
