I created this recipe randomly one afternoon. I just gathered what I had and created this. I didn't expect much but it turned out delicious. There is a combination of sweet and hot flavors from the honey ham and monterrey jack cheese as well as the mini sweet peppers. This sandwich is grilled on a pan on the stove.

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. Place tomato, olives, and peppers in a small bowl and season lightly with salt and pepper.
  2. Drizzle vegetables with olive oil and toss.
  3. Empty vegetables into pan on medium-high heat and sautee, tossing often. Cook for a few minutes until they just start to wilt. Do not overcook.
  4. Empty vegetables into a food processor.
  5. Pulse six times in food processor until ingredients come together. The peppers will not be fully chopped, this is good. Do not over-pulse, the individual chunks of vegetables should be visible. Do not make a paste or puree.
  6. Roll slices of ham and place on one slice of bread. Top with cheese. Add veggies on top then place other slice of bread on it.
  7. Place the sandwich on pan on medium-high heat. Press down the sandwich by putting a small plate on top and placing a heavy jar or object on the plate.
  8. Cook for a couple minutes until toasted.
  9. Flip sandwich over and repeat for this side.
  10. Remove the weight and brush the beaten egg on the bread and flip. Allow egg to cook (approx. 1 min).
  11. Flip and brush opposite side with egg and cook.
  12. Serve hot!
