Grilled Veggie Dagwood

September 17, 2009

~ Frank ~

I’ve always been a fan of veggies on the grill, not as much as meat of course.  Recently I decided to explore the vegetarian section of the Barbecue Bible.  I can assure you this one is a winner.

I was able to buy all the ingredients at the Saturday market. Some great olive focaccia from the Spanish stand and really good fresh chevre from the French cheese stand nearby, really made a big difference.  I’ve also made it with big loaves of Turkish bread and it turned out very well.

The one alteration I have made to the recipe is to crush a couple of handfuls of olives over it just before putting the top on.  Really exceptional.

I always make enough for a couple of days.  It tastes great on day two as well.

Bon appetite!

    I’m so happy to see you highlight grilling without meat and show that it can be delicious, filling and satisfying. I LOVE this post, and the sammich is really crave-worthy! The idea of crushing olives over the top is great – makes me think of muffalettas.

    This looks so good! And looking at the ingredients list, I bet it would be great even the next day for lunch, maybe even better. Like those pressed sandwiches. Oooo, I’m makin’ myself hungry!

    Beautiful! The grilled veggies sound very tempting to me. Adding a handful of olives would add a hit of salt that I love so much.
