Guacamole, Roasted Red Pepper and Swiss Sandwiches

October 8, 2013Teresa

Guacamole, Roasted Red Pepper and Swiss Sandwiches are incredible! I had the idea rolling around in my brain for the past couple of months but I hadn’t made any homemade bread recently that I could try this idea out on. I didn’t want to make the sandwich on regular bread with all the high fructose corn syrup, MSG and preservatives, so I’d been waiting until I actually made a loaf  of bread to whip up this great tasting sandwich.

I used my Chunky Homemade Guacamole recipe and some leftover roasted red peppers from another recipe, some Swiss cheese, and a few slices of Parmesan Pine Nut Bread. This is a great breadmaker bread that’s quite hearty and sturdy which you need for a goopy kind of sandwich like this! The flavors are superb. Guacamole, roasted red peppers and swiss cheese–oh, this sandwich was heavenly. I LOVE guacamole anything, and roasted red bell peppers–wow! Believe me, this sandwich made my day!

Guacamole, Roasted Red Pepper and Swiss Sandwiches are a great option for Meatless Mondays because they are so filling and satisfying. These sandwiches are also healthy, low calorie and clean. Most of the calories come from the avocados in the guacamole but this is the right kind of oils you want to add to your diet. Serve with fresh fruit, a side salad, or a bowl of hot chowder and you have comfort food at it’s best.

I’m not a huge sandwich lover like my husband who can eat meat and cheese sandwiches just about every day. If I eat a sandwich at all it’s RARELY lunch meat and cheese. I do like grilled sandwiches, and if I’m going to eat a sandwich at all it’s going to be different and probably gooey – like Chicken Salad, Egg Salad, Pimiento Cheese, or some take off on BLT’s!

I love vegetarian sandwiches or subs the best, although I can eat bacon with the best of them! I think the reason I like  Guacamole, Roasted Red Pepper and Swiss Sandwiches so much is because they are a little on the  goopy side. My mouth is already beginning to salivate!

John doesn’t care for guacamole so the only time I can get my guacamole fix is when we have company over, or if he’s not going to be home for dinner. Luckily for me, that happened last week and I was able to whip up these marvelous sandwiches at last! If you’re tired of your same-old-same-old sandwich repertoire, then be brave and try something like Guacamole, Roasted Red Pepper and Swiss Sandwiches some time. The combination of flavors is awesome.

If you and your family  like Tex-Mex food this is a great recipe to try out on them. You can serve this sandwich at tailgating parties, too, although you better make plenty! My pictures were pretty good until I cut the sandwich in half and then all bets were off! The Swiss cheese gushed out and I pretty much had to eat the sandwich with a fork after that! 🙂 But that’s okay. It still tasted wonderful. For directions on roasting red bell peppers see my post here.

This was how lovely the sandwich looked before I cut it in half. Use three or four slices of Swiss cheese — depending on your personal taste.

My Guacamole, Roasted Red Pepper and Swiss Sandwich was fantastic. I drooled over each bite!

Here’s what I did.

I made up a fresh batch of my Chunky Homemade Guacamole.

Place Swiss cheese slices on bread.

Cover one piece of bread with guacamole.

Sprinkle both pieces of bread with pepper, as desired.

Place the roasted red bell pepper on top of the guacamole.

Carefully invert the slice of bread with cheese over top of the roasted red pepper. Melt a tablespoon of butter in a cast-iron skillet over low to medium heat. Place sandwich inside skillet to grill and cover with lid. Grill about 5-10 minutes until bread browns a little bit. Don’t cook at a real high temperature or the bread will scorch and the cheese won’t have time to melt.

Carefully turn sandwich over with a large pancake turner. Cover with lid again and grill another 5-10 minutes until done. If the cheese doesn’t melt enough to your satisfaction, place the sandwich on a microwavable plate and microwave for about 10-15 seconds until cheese melts adequately.

This side view shows the main components of this sandwich quite well: guacamole, roasted red pepper, and melted Swiss cheese….uh, and bread!

Picking up the bread caused more cheese to flow out of the sandwich!

Here’s a close up so you can see that this sandwich is just a little goopy. Yum.

The cilantro, onion, and lemon from the guacamole added great taste to this Tex-Mex sandwich.

Here’s the recipe.

Guacamole, Roasted Red Pepper and Swiss Sandwiches are an excellent option for Meatless Mondays. These sandwiches are very filling and satisfying. I do recommend you use a sturdy bread like sour dough, pumpernickel, or rye when making these.
