Let’s Call the Whole Thing Off

You say to-may-toe,
I say to-mah-to.
You say po-tay-toe,
I say po-tah-to.
To-may-toe, to-mah-to, po-tay-toe, po-tah-to,
Let’s call the whole thing off!

I was in the store looking for the bread for this recipe and it called for Focaccia. The bakery only had Ciabatta. Focaccia…Ciabatta…Focaccia…Ciabatta…let’s call the whole thing off. Except I didn’t. I chose the Ciabatta.

While it was not something my carnivorous boys liked, my wife and I thought it was really tasty.

The bread was one long loaf, so I made the sandwich before cutting it.

Make the dressing.

The veggies going into the roaster.

And out.

The bread and cheese.

Layering it up.

AWESOME taste!

California Grilled Veggie Sandwich

Prep Time: 30 min | Cook Time: 20 min | Makes: 4


  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1/8 cup olive oil
  • 1 cup sliced red bell peppers
  • 1 small zucchini, sliced
  • 1 red onion, sliced
  • 1 small yellow squash, sliced
  • 2 (4-x6-inch) focaccia bread pieces, split horizontally
  • 1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese


1. In a bowl, mix the mayonnaise, minced garlic, and lemon juice. Set aside in the refrigerator.

2. Preheat the grill for high heat.

3. Brush vegetables with olive oil on each side. Brush grate with oil. Place bell peppers and zucchini closest to the middle of the grill, and set onion and squash pieces around them. Cook for about 3 minutes, turn, and cook for another 3 minutes. The peppers may take a bit longer. Remove from grill, and set aside.

4. Spread some of the mayonnaise mixture on the cut sides of the bread, and sprinkle each one with feta cheese. Place on the grill cheeseย side up, and cover with lid for 2 to 3 minutes. This will warm the bread, and slightly melt the cheese. Watch carefully so the bottoms don’t burn. Remove from grill, and layer with the vegetables. Enjoy as open faced grilled sandwiches.

    You mentioned mayo, but I see a jar of Kraft Miracle Whip! I very much enjoy Focaccia bread, it is what is used @ a place near where I work. They cut the corners off throw them away. I generally ask them to give me the corners, so munch on them just enjoying the unique flavour of this bread. It does make for a nice base for many sandwich varieties. My brother & I, when young, would slam white bread in the toaster & spread it with Miracle Whip as fast as we could, eating it almost before it got out of the toaster. We’d go through almost half a loaf, and quietly put all the ingredients back. Wonder why our mother never scolded us for this? We caught it for everything else, but not that one.
