Abbey's Melted Cheddar, Sausage and Olive Sandwich

Total Time
Prep 5 mins
Cook 3 mins

I created this sandwich for my daughter and she requested that I name it after her. Measurements are approximate. You can easily substitute the cheese or meat to what you have on hand - pepperoni, bacon, salami, etc.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 13 cup cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 1 -2 tablespoon mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons green olives, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons summer sausage, chopped, I used Grillem's Original Recipe (fully cooked)
  • 1 tablespoon chives, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon roasted red pepper, chopped
  • onion powder, to taste
  • garlic salt, to taste
  • 1 whole wheat submarine bun


  1. Gently mix the first eight ingredients in a small bowl.
  2. Cut the submarine bun in half and place on broiler pan.
  3. Using toaster oven or broiler, lightly toast the bun, then remove from oven.
  4. Spoon the cheese mixture over both sides of the bun and return the pan to the broiler to melt and lightly brown the cheese.
  5. Serve open faced or as a sandwich.

Unusual and tasty. I also didn't add any more salt; the other ingredients were definitely salty enough. It's a bit rich for every day, but very nice for the occasional indulgence. Thanks for posting!

Strange, but good! I made this on a kaiser roll since that is what I had left and didn't add any additional salt since the olives are salty enough for me. I also used dried chives. Was quick and eay and a great change from "regular" lunch sandwich. Made for PAC Spring 2011.
