Grilled Tortilla Sandwich

Start your day with a warm sandwich

Start your day with a warm sandwich


Warm sandwich recipes are ideal for those mornings when you only have time for a quick breakfast. The total time needed to prepare a warm, nice sandwich can be as little as 10 minutes. I believe it’s healthier to have a warm breakfast rather than to grab some cold snacks and eat them while standing in front of the fridge door.

Start the sandwich by setting the stove top grill on medium heat. When it’s hot, put a tortilla on it and heat it for 1 minute, then flip it and heat it on the other side for another minute.

When the cheese starts melting, add a handful of rucola (or rocket salad, as it is also called in some parts of the world).

I won’t be giving you quantities for this recipe, because I don’t believe there’s a right way of making a sandwich. Just use whatever ingredients you like, in the quantities that fit your preferences best. If you like the tortilla less cooked, remove it from heat just after the cheese melted, and only then continue adding rucola, tomatoes, mayonnaise and other goodies. If you are on a low-fat diet, you can replace the mayonnaise with 0% fat yogurt or with salsa.

Easy Brie Cheese Salami Sandwiches

This is a very easy sandwich recipe I like to make when I’m in a hurry, yet feeling the need for some warm meal. The ingredients listed below are my favorites, but you can replace them with others, if you wish. Cooking is a matter of taste, isn’t it?

Ingredients:

  • 1 ciabatta bread, sectioned in halves
  • 8 slices salami
  • 4 slices brie cheese
  • 4-6 kalamata olives, cored, chopped
  • 2 cherry tomatoes, thinly sliced
  • 2 teaspoons butter (or 2 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil)
  • freshly ground black pepper

Directions:
Preheat a stovetop grill. Grill the ciabatta bread halves for about 2-3 minutes on the inner side. Flip them. Top them with butter, then grill them until you see the butter starting to soften. Add the cheese, then the salami slices, the olives and the tomatoes. Cover and continue grilling the sandwiches on low temperature until the cheese melts. Remove from heat, sprinkle with freshly ground pepper and serve hot.

Ingredients:

  • 4 cheeseburger rolls
  • 4 beef burgers
  • 4 slices of Cheddar cheese
  • 1 gherkin, sliced
  • 1 tomato, sliced
  • 1 onion, sliced
  • fresh lettuce
  • 4 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • ketchup or tomato sauce

Directions:
Grill the burgers for about 5 minutes on each side. In order to prevent them from sticking, oil the grill a little before cooking. Top the beef patties with the Cheddar cheese and continue grilling until the cheese melts. Cut the bread rolls in half, then place each patty on a half roll. Add the gherkin slice, then pour some ketchup or tomato sauce. Add the tomato slice, the onion and the lettuce, put some mayonnaise on top and cover with the upper half of the bread roll.
