Grilled Cheese and Vegetable Sandwich

I needed a dinner for the kids quick the other day and they wanted soup…I decided the perfect accompaniment would be grilled cheese.  And as I was making their grilled cheese, it looked good!  I rarely make grilled cheese for myself, so I decided to make a dressed-up version for my husband and I that night too.  I have some beautiful veggies in the refrigerator, so I grabbed some of my favorites and decided to get creative 🙂

Easy Grilled Cheese Sandwich with Vegetables

I used zucchini, squash, diced tomatoes, and mini sweet peppers.  I figured the veggies could use a bit of extra flavor, so I seasoned them with Dust by VooDoo Chef Seasoning.  You can use which ever seasoning you may have at home, or none at all!

I had the bread “grilling” in a separate pan and once the bread looked good, I added on the cheese.  I had a chunk of Colby Jack at home, which so happens to be my favorite cheese, so I sliced it nice and thin and added it on.  Once it started to melt, I topped it with my delicious smelling vegetables.

  • Stove


  • 2 slices of bread - I used Honey Wheat
  • 1 slice of your favorite cheese - I used Colby Jack
  • Sliced zucchini and squash
  • Sliced mini sweet peppers
  • Diced tomatoes
  • VooDoo Chef Dust Seasoning
  • 2-3 tbsp Marinara Sauce
  • Butter


  • In one pan put a dab a butter and let it melt
  • Add two slices of bread to the pan, watch to make sure it doesn't burn, flip as needed
  • In another pan, put a dab of butter and let it melt
  • Add in your veggies and seasonings
  • Cook veggies until soft
  • Add cheese to one slice of bread
  • Top the cheese with your veggies
  • Close up your sandwich
  • Serve with the marinara sauce for dipping
  • Enjoy!


Feel free to get creative and use any vegetables in your refrigerator - then be sure to come back and let me know the combination you used and how it was!
You will notice that in the recipe I mention to serve with marinara sauce for dipping, I learned about doing that from a local Food Truck!  They serve all their grilled cheese sandwiches with a dipping sauce and it is GREAT.  I definitely recommend adding the sauce for dipping.  I used what I had in my pantry, it was the Garlic and Herb Hunt's Sauce that came in a can, it doesn't have to be fancy!  But it is oh so good.  Trust me.
