Grilled Sandwiches without cheese?

I'd like to hear your ideas and/or actual experiences with making grilled sandwiches that use no cheese.

  1. I like grilled veggies (eggplant, roasted red pepper, zucchini, sun dried tomatoes) with hummus on sourdough. (Cheese helps things stick together but you could easily omit it if you don't care for it or can't eat it for whatever reason). Brushed with olive oil and pressed in a George Foreman.

    1. Grilled tomato and eggplant sandwiches
      Grilled tomato and garlic pickles w/ mustard
      Grilled sandwich with any of the following works for me:
      egg salad, chicken salad, avocado, grilled or battered fish

      Sometimes I need a break from cheese!

        You better hope the peeps on the Cheese board don't read this!:))

      2. Grilled hamburger sans cheese. Have never understood the love for cheeseburgers, altho' I love cheese by itself or on other stuff.

        1. grilled peanut butter and jelly. Go very light on the pb because it can turn into molten lava if you go to heavy. So very good.

            Grilled PB. Oh my.

            I may actually go heavy on the PB and just eat the darn thing with knife and fork.

            Excuse me, I need to be alone for a moment ...

                I am not really a peanut butter fan but when I do have it, the bread goes in the toaster and is then immediately coated with peanut butter which melts into a delicious ooze. No Jelly for me.

                Mmmm so good. Potbelly Sandwiches makes a huge gooey version of these.

                  I am surprised a restaurant serves these. The peanut butter can be deadly if it drops on your skin. But damn are they worth the risk

                2. re: suzigirl

                  You can have my jelly. I'll take mine with sliced banana, apple or pear, a drizzle of honey, and a sprinkle of cinnamon, please :)

                    1. re: suzigirl

                      Do. And have an extra half for me since I don't eat bread anymore!

                      1. re: goodhealthgourmet

                        I will do that for you. And do it with a happy belly

                    2. re: goodhealthgourmet

                      I like the pb and banana. Or pb and nutella. To be cliche, pb and bacon.

                      1. re: chowser

                        I've done one slice of toast schmeared with pb and the other with Biscoff spread. Squish bananas between. Lovely breakfast, with a glass of milk.

                      2. re: goodhealthgourmet

                        lunch today was pb, honey, sriracha and tahini. It was dying for sliced apple and or celery and grilling.

                      3. re: suzigirl

                        Along the same lines, grilled nutella sandwiches. With fruit or jam of choice, if you like. I enjoy them with strawberries or raspberries.

                        1. re: biondanonima

                          Nutella and jam. I want that right now

                        2. re: suzigirl

                          Yes! Love a grilled pb&j. Also like grilled pb and banana.

                        3. Grilled peanut butter and bacon good..
