Beets on a sandwich? That and more! The best sandwiches are those with just the right amount of ‘things’. This odd, yet delicious, combination of ingredients comes together for a harmoniously tasty and indulgent beet grilled sandwich.
Just Beet It!
We won’t even pretend like this incredible concoction was our doing- we 100% snagged this recipe from a local spot in Atlanta called Recess.
And we’re not even mad about it- it’s that good. They have a variation of this sandwich that we immediately fell in love with.
Be prepared..it sounds a little whacky at first, but once you take your first bite, we promise you’ll be sold. Unless, of course, you don’t like beets (…or any of the ingredients in the sandwich).
BUT, if you’re all good on those, we promise it will be a recipe you come back to often. It’s just so tasty!
We’ve grilled this up on a medium sized fry pan like a grilled cheese, which works great, but we’ve also used both a panini press and toaster oven- all work great!
Adding a little salt and pepper to this gives it a more “seasoned” flavor but isn’t necessary to get the full flavor experience. Really, it’s just a bonus.
I’ve been eating this sandwich for almost a month now because it’s so easy to take the ingredients with me and it feels like I picked up a freshly made sandwich. Plus, it only takes about 12 minutes in total prep and cook time.
